Water damage prevention
Keep vacant properties safe from the risk of serious water damage and bacterial growth with drain down support from White Star. Burst pipes, leaking taps, pipe theft and vandalism to the water system can all have a catastrophic impact on your buildings.
White Star will drain down all the water and central heating systems, shut off the water supply and secure the stop cock, to prevent tampering. Our teams can then reinstate supply and refill water systems when required – chlorinating systems where appropriate to eliminate and prevent Legionella.
