Looking out of the window you wouldn’t believe it was summer. Big, billowy storm clouds the size of battleships hanging ominously overhead, a grey band of rain bringing even more gloom and despondency stretching out on the horizon. You can tune in to whichever radio station or channel you like or go to any website. The weather forecast is always the same: abysmal. Some areas are once again predicted to get a month’s rainfall in only one day. And the next low pressure system is not far behind.
For those of us unfortunate enough to have been affected by these sudden torrential downpours that transform a trickle into a raging torrent and rivulets into rivers, this year will certainly be one to remember. Having previously read or heard about the flooding abroad, in far off places, places where we would not have thought it could have been possible on such a scale it is now our turn to worry whether we are the next, whether it is our town or village that will be hit by the sheer unstoppable masses of water that swell into streets and houses and engulf everything that stands in their way.
The north-east of England was the last part of the country to be severely affected by monsoon-like rainstorms which swept across the UK over the weekend. Video footage could be seen on national television showing how tunnels and subways had filled with startling speed as flash floods submerged stretches of road under up to 50cm of water often catching motorists unawares and leaving some of the more frightened or foolhardy ones stranded in their cars until they could be rescued by local services.
Although we can do nothing – except perhaps change our collective attitude to the environment and cease to disregard the responsibility we all as individuals have – to prevent these personal tragedies from occurring, we as a company can help families and households to cope with the aftermath of the floods and help restore their property to the state it was in before the heavens opened and disgorged their contents on unsuspecting residents.
Because when the waters have subsided and the cellars have been pumped empty it is time to dry out the buildings in order to stop even more damage, especially structural damage, from occurring.
As one of Europe’s leading suppliers of drying equipment – both to buy and to hire – we can provide you with the building dryers and the dehumidifiers you need to manage the situation and orchestrate the clean up that inevitably follows such devastation.
To find out exactly which unit – or units – we have for you visit our online shop or contact our experts at TKL, Europe’s largest home-delivery hiring company. There is also an online capacity calculator available which is designed to take the guessing out of what you need.
So as much as we would like to, we can’t change the weather this summer. But what we can do is give you the best deal for your money.
Trotec. The real deal.
