Flooding In London – anywhere, anytime

October 5th, 2009

Flooding is a potentially devastating problem that can affect home or business owners at any time. Flooding following prolonged periods of heavy rain can be a risk anywhere, even in those areas of London that appear to be a safe distance from the main waterways.

The sewage system is particularly susceptible too, and blocked drains can be a city-wide problem when flood waters rise. If your property or livelihood is at risk from the havoc caused by floods, you need to be sure you have access to reliable, professional and experienced emergency plumbers when you need it.

If flooding affects your home it’s important you put the safety of yourself and your loved ones first. You should act quickly to move you and your family to a safe location. If you have time, switch off gas, electricity and water supplies. Remember never to touch electrical items affected by the flood water. If you can, collect some essential items and take them somewhere out of reach of the water. If the emergency services are in attendance you should co-operate with them and follow their advice.
