The first thing which separates flood, fire and storm damage from other property repair problems is how suddenly it appears; you might suspect a dry rot
problem for a while but the kind of cataclysmic damage we’re talking about here comes along very unexpectedly. To make matters worse, it is usually the kind of damage which is severe.
What you need is someone who can deal with your flood damage repair, storm damage repair or fire damage repair quickly and proficiently. These types of damage can not only cause you stress, but it is expensive and time consuming to carry out damage restoration on these problems. If your business is forced to close due to these types of repairs, then this can cause you financial problems whilst the damage restoration is taking place. Richardson & Starling are experienced in these types of repairs and can work with you to ensure that your property/premises are repaired as quickly as possible with the least amount of damage to your finances.
Our main aim is to understand the problem as quickly as possible, complete our survey safely and identify the best course of action. We understand that your main concern will be returning to your home/business as soon as possible and we always take this into consideration.
Water Damage Restoration
Although water damage may not be the most dramatic in terms of damage repairs, that doesn’t make it any less serious. No matter how small a leak starts out – it can quickly get out of hand. Richardson & Starling can carry out a thorough water damage repair to limit the effects of water damage on your property. The issue with water damage restoration is that it is not simply clearing up any water – water can cause further damage such as rot and it also allows the breeding of bacteria and mould. Here at Richardson & Starling
we are experts in different mould and rot problems.
When water damage leads to bacteria and mould this can cause a big problem for you and can even be detrimental to your health. Richardson & Starling have vast knowledge of water damage repair and mould removal. Don’t leave it too late. The sooner you deal with your water damage or mould problem, the lower the chance there is of it spreading and growing.
Flood damage repair needs to be carried out quickly – as the longer the water touches the fabric of your building the worse the damage will become. Effective flood damage repair services require expert knowledge, this is where Richardson & Starling come in, we have been in business for over 80 years and in doing so we have become experts in our field. We can carry out our flood damage repair quickly and efficiently to avoid the build-up of bacteria and mould in your property.
Water damage doesn’t simply occur from flooding, although flood damage is a common cause. It can also occur as a result of water used in putting out fires. Water/flood damage can have severe consequences on the overall structure of your building. Therefore, if you do not use professionals to clear up the problem you could be left with a much bigger issue. Trust Richardson & Starling, with our 80 years’ experience we have learned every aspect of our business from the ground up, this experience has been passed down to our skilled surveyors and other employees.

Storm Damage Restoration
Storm damage is quickly becoming one of the most common forms of home destruction in the UK. Due to our location being next to the Atlantic Ocean our storm damage repair services are becoming more and more needed.
