Why You Can Trust A-Jet
A flooded property is an incredibly stressful situation. Extreme weather floods, burst pipes, or simply forgetting to turn the tap off can cause chaos and stress in a matter of minutes. An overflow into your home or workplace may only be a minor inconvenience if confined to a small space and dealt with quickly. If the water has spread over a large area or has had time to sit though, it can lead to significant problems. We’re talking soaked carpets, ceilings and walls that compromise the integrity and safety of the building, not to mention creating the risk of mould developing.
If you are dealing with water damage and need flood recovery services, contact an expert in the field as soon as possible. Damage to your property and potential health hazards typically become worse over time, leading to an increase in repair costs.

A-Jet's Flood Recovery Plan
Give us a call as soon as you notice the flood, the sooner we can attend to the issue the lower the damage that will be caused. Upon arrival, our expert technicians will assess the water damage and class it according to its severity. This will inform how we restore the damage. We can then provide you with an estimate of the cost and book in a flood recovery technician.
When our team arrive onsite they will assess the extent of the damage and water migration. They will then get the extraction process underway to extract as much water as possible. We use quality assured truck mounted and portable extraction machines.
We tailor drying programs specific to each site. We dry to IICRC standards using state of the art commercial air movers, air purifiers, drying mats and dehumidifiers. This equipment not only dries carpet, but also floors, walls, and other affected structures. we monitor the environment being dried via a wired sensor system. The continual evaluation of the environment allows the Boost Box to adapt to the varying conditions.
Our flood recovery technicians will regularly monitor the drying process with site inspections usually each day. Regular readings using thermo-hygrometers, moisture meters, and thermal imaging allow us to monitor the drying process and make necessary adjustments. Site inspection reports documenting the process are emailed to you and/or your insurance company.
What Can You Do To Help
Guard Against Electrcuation
When water mixes with electricity, the result can be deadly. Make sure a registered electrician has isolated the area before remediation work is carried out. Don’t touch any electrical points or appliances until the electricity has been turned off. If you are standing in water don’t try to turn off electricity at the fuse board, and never go into an area where electrical outlets are exposed to water. Get a registered electrician to carry out a remedial works and/or electrical testing of appliances as required.
Find The Source Of The Flood
Find the source of the flood and, if possible, stop it by closing the valve or isolating the area. Call registered plumber to fix the problem. You should attempt to clean up as much of the water as possible by soaking it up with towels or other porous materials or decanting it with buckets in order to minimise some of the damage. It is also always helpful to take photographs, as these are often very beneficial in the future and assist flood recovery experts in formulating a restoration plan.
Move Goods To A Safe Place
Where possible move personal belongings and furniture to another location to avoid damage. Remove wet rugs from carpets as colours may run and stain the carpet below. Blocks under furniture legs will help keep furniture off wet flooring. Pinning up furniture skirts and draperies is also a practical way to avoid dye and water marks.
Call The Experts
Most importantly, contact a knowledgeable and trustworthy flood restoration specialist. This is because procrastination can only lead to worse problems and a greater amount of damage and expense in the future. The longer any kind of moisture damage is left untreated, the more extensive the harm will eventually be to both the structure and its inhabitants.

What are the different types of water damage?
Category 1: Clean Water. This water is from a source that is harmless to people. This could include overflowing bath, burst freshwater tap, or leaking from a water cooler.
Category 2: Grey Water. This water has been contaminated with things such as bacteria, mould or chemicals, and thus poses a health risk. This could include dirty water from washing machines, dishwashers, broken aquariums or leaking toilets. It also may be from previous clean water (category 1) that has not been removed within a day or so.
Category 3: Black Water. This water is riddled with disease-causing bacteria and harmful toxins, rendering it extremely unsanitary and dangerous. This could include sewer backflow, broken toilets containing faeces and rising external flood waters.
