Surbiton is a busy suburban area of south-west London within the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. It is situated next to the River Thames, 11.0 miles south west of central London. Surbiton was formerly within the County of Surrey, but became part of Greater London in 1965 following the London Government Act 1963, together with many areas including neighbouring Kingston, New Malden, Tolworth, Thames Ditton and Richmond. Surbiton possesses a mixture of Art-Deco courts, more recent residential blocks and grand 19th century townhouses blending into a sea of semi-detached 20th century housing estates.
Whatever type and are of property you live in or own in Surbiton, be it residential or commercial, we can all be affected by the same thing, water damage. Quite unexpectedly and what seems for no reason at all a water pipe or an appliance such as a washing machine or dishwasher stars to leak. Unfortunately most of our plumbing in concealed so we may not know we have a water leak until we notice a damp wall or floor, or worse, the ceiling collapses. Even nice clean water can cause enormous damage to your property, furnishings and belongings. During the cold winter months uninsulated pipes, especially in your loft, can freeze and later burst, causing hundreds of litres of water to discharge into your rooms.
When you experience water damage unfortunately it is not just a matter of cleaning up and waiting for it to dry, because secondary problems can arise such as shrinkage and distortion of timber items, staining to the walls and the worst case scenario, Dry Rot Fungus (Serpula lacrymans). The only conciliation with this disaster is you should be covered for the restoration works by your home insurance so one of the fist things to do is call them.
