Making things as good as new
Fire damage claims
We manage a large volume of fire claims every year, but can be limited in what we can do for our customers because we’re not instructed until it’s too late. We’ve therefore introduced a new managed rapid response service which begins work on these claims within 48 hours. This bright idea will halve the time it takes to settle a claim and help us to considerably increase the number of items that can be restored. Not only will we cut our environmental impact, but also reduce our fire claims spend and most importantly help customers get back in their home quicker.
Restoring stain-damaged carpets
We know that rather than replacing customers’ damaged carpets, most would prefer to have the stain removed. We have been trialling use of new technologies and cleaning agents to do just that. This not only helps minimise inconvenience for our customers, it also helps to minimise our carbon footprint by dramatically reducing the number of carpets we need to replace.
Restoring the things you love after flood and storm damage
If despite our best efforts we can’t restore the things you love, we’ll always try and recycle it to help avoid waste going to landfill. While just 13% of waste materials we deal with go to landfill, this figure is dominated by the waste carpets and insulation which we have to throw away. That’s why we’re now working to find a recycling plant capable of dealing with them.
