Storm Desmond – Cumbrian Flooding

When Hydro Cleansing heard, and then saw the devastation caused by Storm Desmond in the North of England, we recalled the storms that battered the South of England in 2013 – 2014. During the floods last year, we assisted the local emergency services to ensure the safety of the public and get the damage caused by the flooding cleaned up as quickly as possible.

After seeing the devastation caused by the mass flooding in Cumbria, we immediately sent one of the newest Road Sweeper units in the country. Our Sweepers are capable of high pressure water jetting and removing dangerous mud and debris from storm lashed roads, helping to assist in the efforts to re-open roads to enable other emergency services to get to more victims.

To help get people back into their houses as quickly as possible, Hydro Cleansing have also sent an 18,000 litre bulk tanker to pump out flood water in roads, drains, ditches and basements

Local people are struggling for warmth and shelter and our drivers also need a break so our Welfare Unit will provide them with a place to sit, make a hot drink and a plate of food to recharge batteries.
