This was a tenanted house that suffered a burst 50 gallon tank in the loft. Instructions came from the landlord via their letting agent.
Mains water ran through the house undetected for 2 days. The damage was extensive and affected all of the rooms on the first and ground floor, water even found its way into the external brick cavities.
After making the property safe and testing for asbestos in the collapsed ceilings, all the internal partitions, ceilings and floors were removed before drying commenced. Once dry a full refit of the property took 6 weeks to complete.
