Flooding events across the UK due to climate change have been rising in the past few years, considerably increasing the risk of flooding significantly. Over the past few weeks, the UK has seen some of the worst flooding than in previous years, without the end in sight at any time soon.

All industries have been affected by the likes of Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis, causing significant loss of livelihood for many businesses. Transport has been hugely impacted with many flights being grounded and cancelled, trains being delayed due to blockages and flooding on the railways and road closures due to severe winds and water on the roads.

Infrastructure faces significant risk and the engineering communities must invest in solutions in preparation for changes in climatic conditions to reduce the impact of weathering such as Storm Dennis. Flooding is significantly affecting all levels of business in the industrial areas and concerns for industrial cleaning are increasing.

Bridge & Road Flooding

As you may have noticed in the media, infrastructure is facing severe threats since the oncoming of Storm Dennis. The strength of our bridges is being significantly tested since water is being thrashed towards them at an astonishing rate. The bridges along the River Wye and River Severn are causing concern for onlookers since there is so much water crashing against them, leading to structural damage.

With 30 years’ specialist building cleaning experience, our team of fully-qualified specialist technicians are on hand to manage all forms of surface cleaning and restoration. Property cleaning is something we carry out on a frequent basis, so we understand the specialist requirements in working with delicate surfaces often in bridges and other forms of infrastructure. We provide specialist cleaning chemicals and environmentally-friendly solutions to mitigate the effects of flooding and reduce the impact of flood damage to the stonework.

It’s been duly noted that the roads have been significantly impacted by the effects of Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis. Road closures are cropping up all over the UK since the roads have been flooded and the winds are so strong. When it comes to cleaning highways and roads, specific requirements must be taken into account to ensure that the roads are not being closed for extended periods of time.

We are frequently required to assist with emergency projects affecting bridges and roadways. We understand the urgent requirements and have a team of staff on board to assist with emergency response jobs affecting infrastructure.
