Water and fire damage restoration

water damage restoration 

Water damage usually goes unnoticed and unfortunately unexpected. They develop over a longer period of time. Among other things, this pipeline damage, in fires, the required extinguishing water or extinguishing foam.
Likewise also with rain water and unfortunately more and more frequently the elementary water damages by high water and rising ground water levels. The necessary damage remediation measures are to be evaluated individually for each case and also individually remediated.

Emergency safeguards

After a damage event, our experts will arrive on site and will immediately initiate and carry out the necessary measures with the objective expertise.

Emergency safeguards are:

  • demarcation and protection of the causer
  • disconnecting the electrical systems
  • leakage detection, leakage removal
  • clean and pump off the existing water
  • outsourcing and drying of the inventory
  • check the cubature for damage and remove of no longer to be rehabilitated parts thereof
  • construction of the required technical drying systems
  • the appropriate and professional disposal with appropriate documentation
  • According to EN 

remedial measures

Our aim is to keep the resulting event in a straightforward manner, taking into account the legal requirements, and to minimize it as far as possible without further business interruptions and production stoppages.

That is why our experts are at your side from the very beginning and with their decades of experience and suitable personnel and technical equipment will be able to eliminate the incident as quickly as possible.

fire damage restoration

The fire department leaves GMC EUROPE is coming.

A fire event is always an unpredictable event that usually causes significant damage. The resulting damage pattern is always influenced by the different fire loads.

Mostly with soot, fire sludge and the required extinguishing water or extinguishing foam is expected. Among other things, the damage picture is to be divided into the following hazards: Acute hazards caused by toxic, corrosive, explosive and flammable substances Chronic hazards due to carcinogenic, mutagenic, fruit- and reproductive-damaging substances. Infectious hazards due to biological agents (bacteria, viruses, molds).

Therefore, the emergency measures to be carried out by our experts are essential in order, among other things, to avoid the threat of environmental damage.

Work in contaminated areas is work for the production or processing of a building that takes place in areas that are contaminated beyond a health-endangering basic burden, with hazardous substances or biological agents.

This work is therefore not just the work of the classical remediation of the area but all construction work that takes place in contaminated areas, including preparatory and final work.

In such construction work is always expected to release environmentally hazardous substances, the parties are exposed from construction site to construction site substances with different properties and hazards.

Therefore, risk minimization through prevention is to minimize the exposure of workers by adapting the protective measures to the hazard potential and to the specific exposure situations at the various activities, at the different workplaces.

The site of the damage will then be taken over by our expert after approval by the structural engineer and the investigating police department or the fire investigators, taking into account the Vds 2357, and the necessary emergency measures will be carried out immediately:

  • static check of the building
  • disconnecting the supply lines such as electricity, water, gas, etc.
  • contact the Competent Authorities, GAA, RP or Competent Authority and BG.
  • Securing the fire and setting up the signage
  • establishment of a black / white area (decontamination lock)
  • pumping out, collecting chemicals, water-polluting substances, extinguishing water
  • Secure and remove not damaged technical equipment of the inventory.
  • dismantling of the resulting fire loads
  • proper disposal and documentation of the EN disposal certificate

Our goal? To minimize the resulting loss event in compliance with legal requirements and to minimize it as far as possible without further business interruptions and production losses. That is why our experts are at your side from the very beginning and with their decades of experience and suitable personnel and technical equipment will be able to eliminate the incident as quickly as possible.

In the vast majority of cases, we can also help you fast and uncomplicated for the duration of the interruption of operations.

We have a very large range of technical rental equipment that allows you to include production facilities for wastewater treatment, surface treatment equipment and exhaust air purification systems as part of the business interruption insurance.

These are with the required approval, depending on size in 4 – 6 weeks operational. Being economically independent of your competitors and continuing to serve your customers should be the top priority in the event of a claim.

Our experience – your advantage!
