Protecting your home and belongings
Minimising the impact of flooding
If your area is prone to flooding and is likely to be hit by a storm, put sandbags outside external doors and turn off the mains water. Move electrical equipment and furniture to a higher floor, if possible.
Secure or remove garden furniture and other free-standing equipment such as climbing frames and swings. Cut loose or low-hanging tree branches to help to keep wind damage to a minimum.
Maintain your roof
Try to check regularly the condition of your roof and arrange repairs as soon as possible. Cleaning out gutters and drains can help prevent damage from overflowing rainwater.
