Corrosion Control

Our experienced team can help you protect your property, upholstery & fixtures against corrosion!

Don’t let a fire or flood eat away your livelihood

After a flood or fire, it’s understandable that you focus on the immediate damage. But once that is remedied, don’t forget about unseen damage that can be caused. For example, following a flood, water damage, or fire, corrosion is an unavoidable concern for any home or business. Post-disaster corrosion is a particular threat to concrete structures, steel-framed buildings, electronics, metal equipment, and piling.

Northern Restoration offers post-incident corrosion control services that can address current damage and help your home or business minimise future corrosion. The key to limiting the damage caused by corrosion is taking quick action and calling a professional as soon as possible.

The most common issues that we see include:

What is corrosion control?

Smoke, soot, and water are common causes of corrosive activity, affecting the functionality, reliability, and service life of structures and equipment. At Northern Restorations, we offer comprehensive corrosion control services that remove surface contaminants and environmental conditions that promote or prolong corrosion. Within the first few days following a fire or flood, our corrosion control specialists perform an on-site and in-depth evaluation of your infrastructure.

Through effective corrosion control services, our specialists can help you prevent material deterioration through the application of:  

  • Barrier coatings: Coatings are the first line of protection against rust and oxidation. Barrier coatings are effective methods of preventing corrosion on metals, concrete, and wood. They work by creating a physical barrier between the material and the environment, preventing moisture and other corrosive agents from reaching the surface. At Northern Restorations, we offer a range of barrier coatings—including epoxy, polyurethane, acrylic paint, or powder—which can be applied to various surfaces using spray, brush, or roller. Adhering to metal surfaces, these coatings create a thin film of protection.

  • Hot-dip galvanization: Hot-dip galvanization is a process that involves immersing steel in molten zinc, creating a protective coating that can withstand harsh conditions and prevent corrosion. We use state-of-the-art galvanising technology that can handle both large and small projects, ensuring your assets receive the highest level of protection.

  • Alloyed steel: Alloyed steel is a type of steel that has been mixed with other metals to enhance its properties. For example, adding chromium increases steel’s resistance to corrosion and oxidation. Implementing alloyed steel is one of the most effective corrosion prevention methods around, combining the properties of various metals to provide added strength and resistance to the resulting product. 

  • Cathodic protection: Cathodic protection is a method of preventing corrosion on metals by making them the cathode of an electrochemical cell. This is achieved by connecting the metal to a more anodic metal or an external power source, which provides a flow of electrons that reduces the corrosion potential of the metal. We offer a range of cathodic protection systems, including impressed current systems and sacrificial anode systems, which can be customised to suit your specific requirements.

Why is corrosion control important?

If you spot white spots of oxidation on zinc coatings or red rust stains on steel, your property is already at risk. However, effective corrosion control can halt or even reverse the damage. 

Northern Restorations corrosion control services can result in lower and fewer equipment repair costs. Additionally, they prevent equipment disruptions that can be extremely costly and sometimes dangerous if the equipment fails. Benefits include: 

  • Increased workplace safety: Corrosion removal lessens the chance of equipment failure. By preventing rust and oxidation, you’ll improve the functionality of your equipment, machinery, electronics, and piping while prolonging their life. 

  • Preventing future damage: When we remove corrosion from your equipment, we’re also preventing it from recurring. 

  • Preventing downtime: Damaged and faulty equipment is the biggest reason for downtown. With preventative corrosion control, you’ll be better equipped to stay on schedule. At Northern Restorations, we ensure our corrosion control services are timely and lasting, ensuring your facility is functional and up and running as soon as possible after a disaster.

  • Avoiding legal liabilities: Poor equipment upkeep in the workplace can lead to numerous health and safety risks. Our corrosion control services protect your business from legal liabilities by minimising the potential for these hazards.
