Water damage can have a catastrophic impact on an empty property and often insurance claims are invalid if the system has not been drained.

Our water system drain down and utilities shut off service provides a professional, cost effective preventive measure to protect your building and fully comply with your insurance requirements.

Water system drain down

We offer a complete water system drain down service for properties that are left vacant for a significant time period. In harsh weather conditions such as the winter months, our drain down service minimises the risk of water damage through burst pipes.

Furthermore, by draining your water supply the risk from dangerous bacteria commonly found in water, legionella, is reduced. When reinstating your water supply we chlorinate all systems to ensure the water is safe for use and consumption.

Utilities shut off

We can also ensure, where possible, gas and electric services are disconnected to reduce the risk of gas leaks and fire. Our qualified team will reinstate all services when required.
