Flood Restoration Services

 

With our 24/7 emergency flood restoration service, clients throughout Auckland can rest easy knowing help is at hand if disaster strikes.

Floods are the most frequent disaster to impact New Zealand properties. In fact, data provided by Auckland Council indicates that in this region alone, 3.2% of properties - that’s 16,000 homes, commercial or industrial buildings - are exposed to flood risk. When you add the risk of flooding caused by burst pipes or taps left running, this figure is worrying to any home or business owner.

 

Whether due to environmental events or human error, flooding can be incredibly stressful, particularly if not caught quickly. What starts as a minor inconvenience can soon lead to significant property damage if the water spreads over a wide area or has time to sit. From soaked carpets, walls and ceilings to the increased risk of mould and mildew, a flooded property can soon become a costly issue if not dealt with promptly. 

At A-Jet, we specialise in flood recovery and have decades of experience managing flooded buildings. While visible water ingress can be tackled with conventional drying systems, it’s the water you don’t see that can do the most damage. We utilise proven flood recovery techniques to dry the affected areas and underlying structures while minimising further damage to your home or workplace. 

 

If your home or business has suffered from flooding, contact our team as soon as possible.

A-Jet is a Kiwi-owned and operated company with 30+ years of experience in effective flood management and water damage restoration services. Certified and accredited, our flood recovery experts dry to standards as set by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), Restoration Industry Association (RIA), and the Carpet Cleaners Association of New Zealand (CCANZ).

Response time is crucial when a property has flooded - the quicker you can have a specialist flood recovery team on site, the more likely you are to be able to reduce loss. It’s for that reason that we offer 24/7 emergency flood response. Our on-call technicians are conveniently located throughout Auckland, so we can ensure a timely response to flood emergencies, whatever your area.

Assessment

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.

Drying

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.
