Expert Flood Damage Cleaning Services

Based in the South East of England, we’re on hand around the clock for customers in Herne Bay.

Our experts have years of experience in the flood damage cleaning field.

Living near a river or the coast means you are more likely to experience a flood during severe weather. Without professional help, cleaning a flooded home may be unpleasant and hazardous. Floodwater carries contaminants and risks, including waste and exposed electrical cables, and it may attract pests like rats, mice, and flies.

Our team here at ICE Cleaning will show up within a few hours to conduct emergency flood damage cleaning. We remove excess water from the area and clean all contaminated surfaces affected by floodwater.

To find out more about any of our cleaning services, contact a member of our team today. You can either email us at enquiries@icecleaning.co.uk or give our support team a call at 0208 066 0360.

What can make a flood worse?

Certain parts of the country are particularly vulnerable to floods because of their surroundings or unpredictable weather events. Flooding may result from various natural occurrences, with manmade climate change playing a role. The following are the factors that are most likely to cause a flood:

  • Heavy rains
  • Prolonged rainfall
  • Steep hills or slopes
  • Quick snowmelt
  • Saturated soils
  • Dry soil
  • Impermeable surfaces

How many types of flooding are there?

The UK sees six distinct forms of flooding, and knowing the types that can damage your property will help you be more prepared if you get a flood warning.

Coastal flooding

Areas at risk of coastal flooding are those closest to the ocean. Floods are triggered by contributing factors, including severe weather and high tides. Seawater naturally erodes the ground, but climate change has exacerbated it. This results in additional damage to residences and businesses and can create long-term community disruption.

River flooding

Most flooding in the UK occurs this way, and populations near rivers can be particularly vulnerable. If there are blockages or heavy rain, the river's flow will intensify and increase, resulting in a flood. Strong currents from flooded rivers pose a risk to your safety.

Surface water flooding

This happens during periods of heavy rain when storm drains get clogged and may still occur in low or medium-risk regions. Because flash floods can arise anywhere, it is impossible to tell when they will happen, so you should always be vigilant when there is a storm or consistent rainfall.

Reservoir flooding

A reservoir might overflow if there is human error or damage to the structure, albeit this is highly uncommon. Due to the swiftly moving water and difficulty stopping it, this reservoir flooding may be deadly.

Groundwater flooding

Living in a region with high hills and sloping terrain might increase your risk of floods. A community may be at risk of groundwater flooding if it is situated at the base of a hill or in its dip. This flooding occurs due to intense rainfall and saturated soil that cannot absorb further water.

Sewer floods

This is another uncommon occurrence of flooding that may happen if underground pipes rupture or flood control devices are unsuccessful. Sewage flooding is extremely harmful because it swiftly spreads bacteria that can lead to life-threatening illnesses.

Are there different types of floodwaters?

The type of floodwater that has entered your house may affect the cleaning procedure, your safety, and what objects may be recoverable if they are damaged. Knowing the various floodwater types will help you decide how much cleaning you need to do and if it is safe to enter your house again after a flood.


This water may appear free of contaminants, but it could pose a risk to your furnishings and house. Even after a clearwater flood, mould can continue to develop. If it encounters live electrical circuits, it can be deadly.

Grey Water

There will be contaminants in this water that can make you sick if you drink or touch it. It is comparable to contaminated water that is sometimes found in toilets, sump pumps, dishwashers, and washing machines.


This is the most hazardous type of water since it has dangerous and contagious germs that can cause severe illness. Blackwater may not always be black or have any obvious impurities, making it challenging to spot.
