Flood Restoration
Saving a ceramic floor

When severe flooding hit Tadcaster, resident Mr Owen found his property submerged, and was initially advised that a much loved ceramic floor would need to be removed to facilitate a programme of dehumidifier drying.

Thankfully, the major loss adjuster was familiar with our evaporation drying solution, and introduced us to the project to provide a a non-invasive drying solution.

Our thorough site assessment and survey report highlighted the fact that the ceramic floor had in fact acted as a barrier to the ingress, with minimal levels of moisture recorded below the tiles, although unprotected floor sections showed significant ingress.

'Soft strip'

By exclusively using evaporation drying we vastly reduced the strip out that had been proposed with the initial dehumidifier drying schedule. We removed the bottom 75mm of dry lining and introduced a series of vent holes to aid air circulation in the walls.

The drying process took just 4 days, and we recorded moisture levels falling from an average of 85% relative humidity to just 25% RH within a variety of solid floors and walls.
