This Christmas has been a wet one for many people, with thousands of homes and businesses in the North of England sadly affected by flooding. Despite the holiday season, Adler & Allan has been on call to help a number of office buildings, forecourts, retail outlets and other business clients minimise the devastation and get back up and running as quickly as possible.
We have been supplying emergency flood response services in the UK’s worst affected areas, including York and Leeds. Works include uplifting oily waters from business premises, general flood clean up, road sweeping and pumping out flood waters from affected sites. With more rain expected over the next few days, courtesy of Storm Frank, the worst is not yet over, and Adler & Allan’s nationwide flood response teams are poised to deal with more flooding.
Going forward, we hope the Government makes flood defences a priority; the disruption and damage it causes to people’s lives and the cost for Britain’s businesses is not acceptable. Unfortunately, the pattern of winter flooding seems to be a recurring and increasing problem.
Find out more about the flood clean-up services we have been implementing, here:
- Cleaning forecourt premises with de-silting and oily water uplift

Adler & Allan’s flood protection capabilities
Flood response and clean-up: Adler & Allan’s emergency response teams are on-hand 24/7 to clean-up flood water, preventing asset and environmental damage. Our expert teams can sanitise equipment, while limiting pollution to ground and watercourses.
Flood risk assessments: A flood risk assessment (FRA) will determine the potential risks of flooding to a site, with recommendations being given on how best to tackle the threat.
Flood defences: Following a flood risk assessment, we can advise appropriate flood defence measures. Flood defences available through Adler & Allan, include JBAR®, a newly patented modular flood defence system that prevents spills as well as mitigating against flood water.
