Fire & Water Damage

We maximise the chance of restoration, saving you time, money and precious memories.


Fire Damage

Fire damage can be extensive. Beyond burning it can also cause damage from any resultant soot and smoke. Significant damage can also result from the fire being extinguished. Structural and surface water damage is a danger as well as subsequent mould growth. On top of this there can be a lingering odour.

The earlier the environment within the property can be stabilised following a fire, the greater the chance of recovery. It is therefore critical to get a professional specialist contractor such as Garrards involved as soon as possible.


Water Damage

We also understand that the results of water damage can be devastating. As well as the disruption it can cause to someone’s home or business it can also mean the possible loss of items that are sentimental or irreplaceable.

From a burst pipe to an overflowing bath, the extent of damage can range from minimal to extensive.  As ever, the quicker action is taken the less chance there is of damage. If instructed early enough, our stabilisation process can significantly reduce the extent of damage by removing vulnerable items from affected areas and controlling the environmental conditions.

Our technicians can identify the most effective drying regime to try and minimise strip out and disruption, which will assist with returning the occupant of the building as quickly as possible.

We will be happy to discuss the options free of charge and won’t recommend our involvement unless it is necessary.



Garrards ‘make-safe’ service gives you peace of mind, making safe any structural issues. With the escape of water, this could mean making safe any potential hazards such as low-hanging ceiling plasterboards.

Our technicians have the technical knowledge and experience to deal with all aspects of the restoration works, for both the building and the contents, and will do this in a conscientious manner.
