Flooding events across the UK due to climate change have been rising in the past few years, considerably increasing the risk of flooding significantly. During 2023, 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. Businesses across the UK are more commonly requiring water damage cleanup services and that’s where we come in.
