Our decontamination protocols are industry leading and don't rely on a "it looks clean" mentality. We can provide certificates of hygiene for surface cleaning and air quality and where appropriate, we employ an independent hygienist who will scope, write the protocol, audit our works and independently close the job.

What makes us different?

As far as we know, we the only organisation in the entire water damage industry who fully validate their drying program and hygiene cleaning as a matter of course. Supporting documentation is provided to the client on completion of appropriate drying works and where specialist disinfection is required. Our methods surpass "best practice" as described in the 2013 version of the british standard pas 64 "mitigation and recovery of water damaged buildings - code of practice - " and also guidelines set out by the bdma, iicrc and other professional trade associations.

Simple application of disinfectants by spray or chemical fogging or applications of ozone are such treatments no longer best practice and are recognised as a potential a health hazard. Such practices should if possible, be managed out of the restoration protocol after a risk and hazard assessment and substituted with a safer alternative where practical. In reality, the industry, government and professional flood advice "experts" continue to promote old fashioned techniques - despite the potential for making your property a toxic chemical dump!

Action Dry can undertake state of the art chemical free cleaning and we do not routinely use damaging ozone.

We have unique methods & systems and pride ourselves on developing ideas that set us apart.

Our latest innovation is a repeatable real time information exchange system that is unique and industry leading.

The software program is the first of it's type to provide an in depth field technical reporting procedure for flood damage technicians. The system has been copyrighted and is unique to our network members. The report includes simple to understand (and use) technical reports on the water damage and building and includes a health risk assessment, comprehensive job sheet, inventories, cost comparisons, transparent invoicing and much more.
