Consultants in Damage Assessment & Business Recovery


Flooding incidents can be as traumatic as they are damaging. Whether a residential or commercial property, it is crucial to understand how far the flood water has spread, and what that means for the materials that have been affected. When preparing a methodology to resolve the issues, you also have to consider the wider context of the claim, most importantly, what impact will the restoration methodology have on property occupants and the overall project costs?

At DF&A, we do not just treat the symptoms of a flood. Our independent consultants take a holistic approach, establishing the extent and severity of the damage, making sure the issues have been resolved – first time. When involving DF&A in your project or claim, we will:

  • Engage with you to understand what is driving your project (alternative accommodation costs, business interruption, minimising occupant disruption, avoiding project delay penalties etc.)
  • Carry out a moisture survey to establish the extent of moisture damage
  • Identify any pre-existing damp issues within the property
  • Carry out necessary invasive investigation to understand the impact to the building fabric
  • Create independent scopes of works for strip out, drying activities and reinstatement works aimed at minimising interruption to occupants
  • Co-ordinate and oversee the quality of restoration works, ensuring they are completed satisfactorily and within agreed timelines
  • Carry out completion gravimetric testing to objectively confirm issues have been resolved
  • Carry out microbiological testing before and after restoration to understand the severity of any potential contamination, and confirm that decontamination has been successful
