If your area is Prone to Flooding


It Pays to Prepare for Flooding

If your home or business is flooded it can be costly, not just in terms of money and time but also inconvenience and heartache.

While it's impossible to completely flood-proof a property, there are lots of things you can do to reduce the damage flooding can cause.

The key is to act now so you're prepared if there's a flood in your area.

Protect your Property

Whether you rent or own your home or business premises, there are many things you can do to help yourself. Some are simple and temporary while others involve permanent structural work.

You can also make improvements so that even if flood water enters your property it causes less damage, so drying-out and cleaning up is faster and easier. This means you could move back home or open for business far more quickly.

Am I at risk of flooding?

You need to find out. It could save you money and help you protect yourself and your property – maybe even save your life. Even if your home or business is not directly at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea, you could still be affected by surface or groundwater flooding.

The most important thing is to prepare now by buying and installing flood products in advance. Don't wait until flooding looks likely as you won't have time to buy or put the measures in place.
