It can take only a few minutes for flash flooding to devastate a neighbourhood and, although waters may swiftly recede, once they have entered your home it could be many weeks before you can return.

By creating a virtual barrier around your home - waterproofing the brickwork and blocking off ingress points - you can make your home and your family flood-safe.

The first step is to walk around the outside of your house and make a note of all the potential ingress points - doors, vents and ducts. Also review the condition of the brickwork and/or render of your exterior walls.

Keep your survey to within one metre of ground level, most flood gates and barriers are designed to withstand flooding up to this level. If water levels are likely to be higher than this then professional advice will be required.

Once you have assessed your property, you are ready to start.
