Surveys & Reports

Technical Survey involves a full inspection of the property both externally and internally to identify any possible defects as well as non-invasive and invasive (if requested) moisture survey.

If your property has recently suffered from the effects of a flood or leak(s), our water damage inspection services provide you with a detailed report outlining causation, recommendations alongside further diagnosis.

Following our inspection you will receive a technical report which will include the following: 

  • Property details i.e. age, construction methods, finishes etc.
  • Findings
  • Recommendations 
  • Moisture mapping
  • Photos
  • Schedule of costs if further works if this will be required

It is widely accepted in the damage management industry that there are four categories of water damage:

  1. Clean Water – such as a leak from plumbing or fixed appliance
  2. Grey Water – water which some contaminants might be present such as for example washing machine
  3. Black Water – water which came from an unsanitary source such as flood water, sewer etc. which may contain a variety of contaminants including microorganisms, anionic surfactants, oils, aromatic hydrocarbons, contaminating salts, heavy metals and other hazardous chemicals/substances etc.
  4. Red Water – water from a source known or suspected to contain hazardous substances for example oil, solvents, fuel etc.

Here at Flood Doctor, we specialise in all types of water damage and understand how important it is to follow the right remediation procedures for each of the above water damage categories.

All of our surveyors are BDMA (British Damage Management Association) Senior Technician qualified and experts in the water damage restoration field. Following our inspection, you will receive a written report outlining our findings and recommendations in an easy to understand language which you can then forward to your insurers to back up your claim. Or maybe you are thinking about buying a property, and you would like to have it inspected for peace of mind? Whatever your reason, Flood Doctor will be able to help.


Not acting soon after a flood or leak could lead to further damage (secondary damage) even in areas which have not been directly affected by the incident. Following a water damage incident, the internal atmosphere will become very humid, moisture could be absorbed from the air by many materials (e.g. Plasterboard, Wood) and the moisture levels of these materials could rise sufficiently to support mould growth.
