Safeguarding Your Home Against Flood Damage

Is your home vulnerable to water damage? It might not be now but you need to be prepared. Here’s our handy water damage check list. The best possible 5 tips accumulated from 30 years of experience.

1. Clean Drains

The first danger you can solve is to remove the build up of leaves and debris from your drains. It’s surprising how many times we see this simple procedure ignored.

  • Don’t forget to inspect downspouts
  • Have someone help you and be aware of the dangers
  • Trim trees and bushes to reduce leave build up

2. Move Furniture Upstairs

Once your home is under threat move all your furniture upstairs, providing you have a first floor of course. You may not think it necessary but it is worthwhile, as it will save you heartache and expense. Get as many people as possible to help. Most neighbours will rally round.

3. Prepare an Evacuation Kit

An evacuation kit should be kept in a safe place as far away from water pipes as possible and contain:-

  • All your important papers
  • Insurance details
  • Prescribed medication
  • Bank details
  • Computer back up (a USB stick is ideal)

In fact anything you will need if you have to leave the house for several days.

4. Roll Up Rugs and Carpets

You don’t want to get your rugs and carpets wet. It can take an age to recover them and mould can be tricky to remove.

5. Shut off Electrical Services

It seems obvious doesn’t it but we see this happen quite often. We enter a house and the electrics are live. Make sure you do this first and if you have a freezer see if your neighbours or family have any extra space.
