Abbey Cleaning offers flood recovery services to help restore your property following flooding.

Flood recovery services include;

Extraction and removal of any standing water that remains in the property.

Sanitisation of effected areas (steam cleaning where possible)

Installation of commercial drying equipment to limit any further damage being caused and dry the property.

Monitoring of drying to ensure property is dried sufficiently, and that rapid over drying is not occurring as this too can cause damage.

We have a full stock of commercial dehumidifiers and air movers which we use to dry properties affected by flooding.  Following a flood the building will have high humidity readings due to the buildings contents becoming saturated with water, if left unchecked this will cause further damage for example;

Mould growth.  As if the stress of a flood is not enough, mould growth can cause additional health problems, especially for at risk people (young, elderly, those already unwell).  Have your property expertly dried following a flood.

Warping of timbers, walls and flooring caused by the high humidity.  Have your property expertly dried following a flood.

Blistering of paint etc.  Have your property expertly dried to limit any further or additional damage.

By installing dehumidifiers and air movers the unwanted moisture is removed from the property bringing the humidity back to pre-incident levels.

Service areas

Flood recovery service is available locally in Redruth, Camborne, Truro, Hayle, Penzance, Falmouth, Helston but also throughout Cornwall.  Frequent call-outs include coastal areas, for example St Mawes, and we helped with the recovery operation in Boscastle.

Due to our location coastal flooding is frequent, but other flood call-outs include;

Burst pipe or water tank

Storm water or weather related flooding

Coastal flooding (as mentioned)

Sewage backup

Appliance breakdown (washing machine failure etc)


Costs are determined by the amount of drying equipment needed and length of time the equipment is installed, this in turn will depend on the size of the effected area and severity of the flood.  Detailed costs will be provided, in some instances over the phone, otherwise upon initial site inspection.  We will not carry out any work until you approve the quote/costs.
