What Causes Floods?
Floods can occur for a number of reasons and more often than not, it’s unexpected and happens suddenly. This can happen due to clogged gutters, downspouts or drain pipes, a full or faulty septic tank, backed up sewer lines or blocked drains.
Weather is another factor that can cause a flood. Large amounts of rain can contribute to flooding in homes and businesses as well as water damage to a home’s foundations, especially if they are already cracked and damaged.
How Can I Prevent a Flood?
With floods always being a prominent risk to homeowners, it’s good to question, how can you prevent floods within your home? there are multiple forms of protection, some big and some small. The two main types of flood protection measure are known as resistance and resilience. Resistance will refer to the prevention of water getting into your building and can be done by implementing removable barriers for doors and windows and also temporary seals for doors. To avoid the risk of sewage backing up and entering your property, ensure that there are only one-way valves on toilets and drainage pipes.
The second method of protection is resilience, this is aimed at ensuring minimal damage if the water does get into your property. These methods include the placing of items that have the potential to be damaged higher up within a room. If you live in an area which is particularly prone to flooding, then it may be worth investing in waterproof bags to put belongings in if water does enter your property.
