EOW (Escape Of Water)-Most of us will have experienced this at some time, either from a household appliance, sink or toilet. This often involves a reasonably small amount of sanitary water leaking from a pipe or fitting. Usually discovered quickly this type of flooding causes only minor damage, but if not discovered and left even for a short period of time because the property is multi-storey or unoccupied, this can very quickly escalate to a severe flood.

Severe Flood-This type of event sometimes can be referred to as a TOP DOWN flood and is often caused by either being flooded from a property above or more commonly from a burst pipe in the loft caused by low temperatures. Even when discovered quickly the damage can in some cases be catastrophic and causes real distress. Severe flooding can cause an almost unbelievable amount of damage and can not only destroy a property but ruin all the contents and personal belongings.

Specialist Drying

Absolutely Clean’s flood technician is IICRC trained in water damage restoration, this ensures each and every job is effectively managed. Although not every flood job will require specialist drying it’s always good to know that Absolutely Clean is up to the job with our range of specialist equipment.

Its true to say that lots of the jobs we attend require only minor services like water extraction using our powerful truck mounted system and then minor strip out followed by dehumidifiers being installed for a few days. It’s when the property has been completely flooded or has been sitting wet for a long time then the need for more specialist desiccant drying becomes necessary. Mould treatment and extensive strip-out may be required to complete the job quickly. Specialist testing and monitoring will quickly determine what action needs to be taken to keep the drying process effective and return the property to use as quickly as possible. We will work alongside loss adjusters/assessors and issue a dry certificate on completion of the job.

Absolutely Clean being a small independent company can offer the same if not a better level of service as a large national franchise at a more competitive cost. If required on a very big job on where national cover is required, we can call on our members in TACCA for assistance.

Inspection and Reports

Every single job should start with a thorough inspection and report into what needs to be done to quickly and effectively dry the property. This can often be lengthy and to some be unnecessary, but we believe will save time in the long run if resources are put in the right place at the right time. All rooms are measured and everything is photographed and documented. Damp readings are then taken in every room determining humidity, temperature and hygroscopic damage.

Non-damaging testing for damp penetration and hazardous substances like asbestos will be carried out. Costs determined at this time may be only approximate until any strip out work is complete. A full health and safety and risk assessment will also be carried out to determine if things like the ceiling is stable and electrics are safe to use.

  • My wife and I chose Absolutely Clean to steam clean our carpets on Friday last. From the first minute we realised that we has chosen well, Mr. Marchbank is a true professional in every sense, furniture was moved without any assistance from us, stained areas were pre treated, the entire carpets were spotlessly cleaned, no missed areas near doors and corners etc, the carpets were totally dry within two hours. Mr. Marchbank is a master of the art of professional carpet cleaning. All carpets were cleaned by a truck mounded system, therefore, no messy buckets or condensation, in our opinion the best carpet clean that we have ever seen, with super service at a very reasonable price. Thank you Graeme we will certainly recommend you to all of our friends. Irene & Bill Soley

  • Great job again....Graeme regularly does work for me. We leave him to it while we are at work.
  • Fantastic service...Great service & quality work yet again! Used absolutely clean to clean our carpets when moving out of rented accommodation - immaculate result. Previously used to clean a much-loved sofa that had suffered with dog & kids - looked like new. High-quality service, highly recommended.  https://trustedtraders.which.co.uk/businesses/absolutely-clean/#reviews
  • Remarkable job....We moved into a house with pale carpets which were fairly stained. Six months later the carpets have eaten most of my 4 year old's dinners too. One trip from Graeme and they look superb and will be staying put for a few more years. Added bonus is that they also feel fluffy underfoot - you don't get that with the ones you hire from the supermarket!  https://trustedtraders.which.co.uk/businesses/absolutely-clean/#reviews
  • Made a very happy customer of us by removing the dirt and pet urine marks from a reasonably new carpet. The cleaning process included a solution which has even managed to put the dog off going near the carpet so even better. Thanks again.https://trustedtraders.which.co.uk/businesses/absolutely-clean/#reviews
  • Fantastic Job  Arrived promptly. Good explanation of the job to be done. Excellent result. Lots of information given on how to care for floor. Pleasant manner. Will definitely recommend.     https://trustedtraders.which.co.uk/businesses/absolutely-clean/#reviews
  • Hi, I have used Graeme Marchbank’s firm a couple of times and now wouldn't go to anyone else. I don't really know how his system works but it does. Other firms I've used do what looks like a good job, but in no time the carpet is as bad as ever. Graeme’s system seems to clean really deeply and doesn't get dirty as soon as others. I am very pleased with his service and he seems to know what he is talking about. https://www.facebook.com/VeryVeryClean/

  • Over the years Absolutely Clean has kept my carpets and upholstery fresh and beautifully clean - like new. Yesterday was another fantastic job on my sofas. There's no need to buy an expensive insurance policy when buying a new furniture - I just use Absolutely Clean

  • I have had my fabric sofa now for 3 years and it was beginning to look a little grubby in certain places. I contacted Graeme at Absolutely Clean and he told me over the phone cleaning the upholstery wouldn't be an issue but it can also depend on the fabric and the staining etc. He has just left and my sofa, chair & foot stool all look like new. I will never go anywhere else. Thanks!
