How do I assess my flood risk?

You should ask yourself these five questions to start with, but bear in mind there may also be other problems specific to your property.

1. Will water come in through my doors, windows and other openings? Sadly, the answer is nearly always yes. Unless they have been built specifically with flood risk in mind which is very unlikely, you have to protect your building apertures.

2. Will water come in through my walls? Sadly, and perhaps surprisingly, the answer is nearly always yes. Most bricks and mortar joints are porous – they let in water after a surprisingly short length of time. So if floodwater stays for more than half an hour or so it may well come in through your walls.

3. Will water (or worse, water contaminated with sewerage) come through my downstairs drain outlets, like toilets, baths and sinks? Sadly, the answer is nearly always yes. It depends on the depth of floodwater and back pressure so you have to consider protecting your drain inlets.

4. Will water come up through my floors? Sadly, the answer is often yes. It depends on the geology of the ground around you and the structure of your floors, and or foundations.
