Swift and Reliable Category 3 Water Damage Recovery for Childcare Centers in Regional Victoria

Category 3 water damage struck multiple playrooms at a prominent childcare center in regional Victoria. After initial mitigation efforts over a weekend, comprehensive recommendations for remediation were proposed, including a meticulous strip-out of skirting boards and plaster wall linings up to 600mm, followed by a low-pressure flood wash, sanitisation, and structural drying.

The Challenge:

The childcare center faced a significant challenge as it couldn’t afford to close its doors and required swift remediation over the festive season. A Post Remediation Verification (PRV) was mandatory before reopening, adding complexity to the situation.

The Solution:

In collaboration with the center’s management, the loss adjuster, and a hygienist, alternative solutions were explored to meet everyone’s needs. Taking advantage of a 10-day shutdown during the Christmas and New Year period, Steamatic efficiently completed the remediation works in adherence to industry standards.


Steamatic undertook the remediation process, ensuring a thorough and effective cleanup.

Post-remediation, an independent hygienist conducted a PRV inspection, validating the success of the undertaken measures. To enable the center to open safely as scheduled, Steamatic additionally installed temporary wall linings, allowing for the utilisation of affected rooms before more permanent repairs could be scheduled.
