Post-heatwave flooding takes England by storm!

Due to the recent thunder and rain, UK news sources have been heavily documenting the widespread flooding that has caused carnage throughout much of southern England. Thousands of homes have been affected, with many families suffering damage to their property as a result of severe downpours.

At Sykes Pumps, we continue to support both businesses and residents by supplying a wide range of pumps suitable for floods of any scale. Our immediate call-out response rate ensures we are here for you 24/7 thanks to our expansive depot network located across the region.

Our pumping equipment will continue to aid the recovery process, with the Environment Agency still issuing flood alerts to those living in London, Brighton, Bournemouth, Reading and Portsmouth.

In addition to pump hire solutions, Andrews Dehumidification have also begun providing significant quantities of building dryers to affected areas, with hundreds of additional units also on standby for when the floods begin to subside.
