Debris/Waste and Water Removal
Damage mitigation activities, if begun quickly can have a great impact on the wider recovery. Most ‘loss mitigation’ activities are simple and cost effective. Investing in mitigation can deliver huge savings when compared to the cost the cost of secondary damage, consequential loss and business interruption. In fact many insurance policies require the policy holder to take ‘reasonable’ steps to mitigate the loss to prevent a situation deteriorating.
Asset and B.E.R Logging
An accurate list of assets involved in or damaged ‘beyond economic repair’ in an incident is important for the organisation or any insurance claim relating. Compiling such a list in the early stages of the recovery process is helpful for all concerned.
Time may pass before assets are officially ‘written off’ or those restored returned to the premises. Safe/secure storage keeps your assets safe and undamaged in the meantime.
Hard or Soft furnishings such as carpets, desks, chairs, personal belongings and documentation are important for any business to continue its operations post incident. Cleaning, sanitising and deodorising items not only saves money but ensures employees return to a safe working environment.

Machinery, manufacturing and process equipment can suffer seemingly irreparable damage from contamination and corrosion in fire & flood incidents, however if stabilised by dehumidification and protective chemicals secondary damage can be prevented and equipment can be restored and re-commissioned.
Such equipment can be costly and sometimes unique; restoration therefore delivers significant savings over replacement and is often the quickest way to ensure equipment essential to business operations is available.
Our trained technicians work with equipment manufacturers and policy holders staff to disassemble, restore, re-assemble and recommission equipment.
Mechanical stock can also be restored for sale or salvage.
