Flood Restoration Tauranga

Floods can cause major damage to homes and businesses in Tauranga. When flood waters damage carpets, walls, floors, and possessions, prompt action is needed to dry out the property and prevent further damage. That's why iDry Restorations offers 24/7 flood restoration services in Tauranga and the wider Bay of Plenty region.

How Floods Damage Properties And Contents

There are several potential causes of flooding in Tauranga homes and businesses:

  • Heavy rainfall overwhelming drainage systems
  • Backed up drains and pipes
  • Burst water pipes
  • Leaking appliances like washing machines and dishwashers
  • Leaking roofs

When flood waters soak into carpets, walls, floors and furnishings, major damage can occur:

  • Growth of mold and mildew - Flood waters provide ideal conditions for rapid mould growth, which can cause respiratory issues and allergies.
  • Warping and destruction of floors and walls - The waters can warp wooden floors and damage drywall. The longer flood waters sit, the worse the damage.
  • Ruined furnishings and possessions - Water quickly ruins upholstered furniture, mattresses, carpeting, and other household items.
  • Electrical system damage - The flood waters can short out electrical systems, resulting in fires or shock hazards.

That's why rapid response is so critical to minimising damage and health risks after a flood.

Our Step-By-Step Flood Restoration Process

iDry Restorations follows a systematic flood restoration process in 5 key steps:
First Step
Inspection and Damage Assessment 
A trained technician will conduct a thorough inspection of your flooded property. They will identify:
Class 1
Class 2
Class 3
Class 4
Less than 5% of the building
5 to 40% (One whole room)
More than 40% (Almost whole building)
Special areas
Minimum damage and water absorption in some parts of a room.
Moisture has affected walls and carpeting of a whole room.
Worst scenario caused by severe flooding. Ceilings, floors and walls all are affected.
Surfaces such as stone, concrete and hardwood which need special techniques and tools for restoration.
Flood Damage Categories:
Category 1:
Water damage caused by faulty or leaking pipes.
Caused by clean water source.
May escalate to category 2 or 3.
Category 2:
Also known as Grey Water. May cause disease.
Detergent water from dishwasher and washing machine is involved.
Category 1 damage escalates to Category 2 if not treated within 48 hours.
Category 3:
Black water. Grossly contaminated and may contain pathogenic, toxigenic or other harmful agents.. 
Caused by sewage, rising water from rivers and seawater
Category 2 water if not removed promptly can be re-classified as category 3
Second Step
Water Extraction
After classifying the type of damage, plans and strategies are drawn up to solve the problem. Powerful equipment such as truck-mounted extractors and water claws is used for removing water. These tools can remove up to 91% of the water. Carpets are cleaned and sanitised to stop the growth of bacteria and mould. Having a completely water-free area is the top priority. 
Third Step
Carpet and Structure Drying
This step involves the dehumidification process, which dries out the existing dampness in the premises to create a perfectly dry space. We use commercial-grade dehumidifiers and air movers to efficiently dry your property. Depending on the extent of water damage, we may introduce advanced drying tools such as injectidry and drymatic. We also use air scrubbers to clean the air and make the environment safe for your health. 
Fourth Step
Cleaning and Sanitising
Water damage also affects the belongings of the residents. There is a need to sanitise all affected items to protect them from bacteria and mould growth. We provide special anti-bacterial treatment for all the affected contents, including linens, clothes, mattresses, and others. If we need to, we could use air scrubbers to clean the air and make the environment safe for your health. 

Fifth Step
Water damage restoration can be a painstaking process that involves much more than just wet carpet drying. The final step is the actual restoration of the building. Depending on the damage, we might need to replace the damaged gibboard, carpet, and paint the area.
