Living in these times of climate change, we have all seen and heard of the flooding which has caused havoc across the UK.
Working as a service provider to the highways, utilities, emergency services, steel and coal manufacturers.
Here at Airload Environmental we have to be able to react both quickly and effectively to minimize damage and the impact of the flood water with a clear flood clearance plan.
Sandbag Installation Service
Traditionally, sandbags have been used to block doorways, drains and other openings into properties as well as to weigh-down manhole covers, garden furniture and to block sink, toilet and bath drains to prevent water backing up. • They can keep water out for short periods which can be improved by using them in conjunction with plastic sheeting. • They can filter out some muddy sediments found in flood waters. • They are cheap and easy to install.
If the sandbags are contaminated by flood water, they should be disposed of safely at your nearest waste disposal site
