Once our Emergency Flood Response Team has been called out, there are a few things you can do to avoid further damage and reduce risk to yourself, staff and the public:

  • Where it is safe to do so, turn off gas, electricity and water supplies when flood water is about to enter your home. Ensure you do not touch any sources of electricity when standing in floodwater.
  • If you come into contact with floodwater, wash your hands thoroughly. Floodwater can contain harmful substances like sewage and/or chemicals.
  • Move any valuables to a dry area or store them away safely if possible.

If you live in a flood risk area, it is important to ensure you have a flood response plan in place. Call us today for help planning and preparing any special requirement.


Our urban service cleans up flood damage from underpasses, depressed roads, culverts and blocked interceptors.

Flooding in Urban towns and cities is usually caused by excessive groundwater runoff in developed areas, where the water doesn’t have anywhere to go, due to a lack of sustainable drainage. Floods can sometimes occur during more routine circumstances, appearing in the form of flooded basements and sewer backups. Even small amounts of rain can overwhelm deteriorated or inadequate drainage infrastructure found in many of our loved neighbourhoods. Our urban service cleans up flood damage from underpasses, depressed roads, culverts and blocked interceptors.


We employ high powered Scania vacuum tankers to drain and irrigate fields quickly and always aim to find the origin cause of the flooding to ensure flooding risks are reduced and prevented in the future.

Rural Flooding can occur as a natural process due to heavy rain, tidal surges and raised groundwater levels. Rural floods can also result from interference with drainage processes, such as changes to river channels, increased run-off from land or blocked sewage systems and local culverts. The Flood Response team at Hydro Cleansing employ high powered vacuum tankers to assist in draining and irrigating fields quickly, all in an attempt to find the original cause of the flood and ensure flooding risks are both reduced and prevented at a later date.
