The Tens of Thousands of Pounds Worth of Damage Won’t Be The Thing You’re Most Devastated By When Your Home or Business Is Flooded…

The obvious effects of flooding – destroyed possessions, the money it takes to get things back to normal, the hassle of squeezing payouts out of the insurance company, the loss of revenue your business suffers – they’re pretty awful, but they’re not the worst part. The really devastating thing is the stress and worry of it all …

It’s the anxiety your kids feel for months afterwards. It’s the trauma of dragging your family to safety through a window. It’s the steady gnawing of the everyday stress of going to work, or not as the case may be when your business premises are flooded. Imagine all of this, and more, besides keeping tabs on the insurers, builders and flood restoration company.

That constant unsettled feeling, that never ceasing stress – it’s tantamount to torture. Long, slow torture.

They say that moving house is the 3rd most stressful life event, after death and divorce. Well, it’s a walk in the park compared to being flooded, losing half your possessions, and then having to live with your in-laws for 6 months or losing the same amount of revenue in that time.

So how can you protect your home, your family, your business and your possessions from flooding?

It’s possible to protect your home and business from flooding so you can go straight back to normal life when the flood waters subside. The secret to it all is preparation.

Seeing as you live in a flood risk area – which is a mere fact because you’re reading this page – the danger of your home or business being flooded is very real. So let’s talk about the 2 key things you should do to be prepared and protect your home or business from becoming a muddy sewer.

Preparation Stage 1: Know The Consequences

If your home or business is to be fully protected from flooding, you need to know what you should be protected from. You need to be clear about what could happen if your home were to flood and ask your flood protection company to explain exactly how their flood defences will keep your home dry.

There are 3 things that take most people by surprise when their home does flood:

1. The speed and unpredictability of the flooding.

Your home or business can be under a foot of water in a matter of minutes, so you need to be sure your flood protection system can be deployed quickly and easily by one person.

2. The overwhelming scale of the damage.

Flooding doesn’t just bring water. It’s muddy, dirty water often with sewage mixed in. Very little can be salvaged. It’s not like an overflowing sink with clean water spilling everywhere. No, your home turns into a sewer in minutes. Flood water often pushes its way in through your bath and shower. It decimates more of your rooms, furniture and possessions than you could ever imagine. You need to be sure that every possible inlet for flood waters is fully protected so you don’t get any nasty surprises.

3. The emotional turmoil your family go through and the effects of being in temporary accommodation for up to 6 months.

The most heart-breaking situations I see are when homes and businesses flood because the owner took too long to get their flood protection installed.

They knew they needed flood defences but they kept putting it off until one day, out of nowhere, it was too late. Their regret makes the stress and emotional turmoil in the months that follow all the more intense. One homeowner told me:

“It’s the sort of thing you see on the news and think “you poor bastard”, but you never think it will happen to you. It’s bloody heartbreaking actually. Much worse than we ever expected.”

Preparation Stage 2: Get The Flood Protection Measures That Will Work For YOUR Home

Every home or business premise is different, so the flood protection system that will keep your home, work place and family safe from flooding is unique to you or your company. It’s important that you find out exactly what that is.

Protecting your home, family, business and colleagues from flooding can be much simpler than you might think. Depending on your home or business and your specific situation, you may need multiple flood protection measures installed, or you may only need to do a few simple things to keep flood waters out.

I wouldn’t wish flooding on my worst enemy. Here’s why…

"The idea of having to pull my wife and our 3 year old son to safety from flood waters doesn't bear thinking about." - Kevin Williams

“All of the devastation I dealt with on a daily basis could have been prevented if those home owners had flood barriers and other protection fitted.” – Kevin Williams

I spent 15 years working with people whose homes and businesses had been flooded – I was the guy the insurance company would send in to wade through the destruction, dry out the fabric of the building and clear up the almighty mess.

After the flood waters subsided, we’d go in and remove plaster up to a metre high. We’d rip up floor boards and throw out furniture and belongings that couldn’t be salvaged. It hit me one day what we were really doing. We were throwing away people’s lives. Tossing their memories into a skip.

Family pictures. The sofa that was perfect for cuddling up on after a long day at work. The table that the kids used to pull themselves up when they took their first steps.

Seeing people’s lives turned upside down, belongings trashed and them not being able to return home or to work for months at a time was disturbing to say the least.

I’d go home every day and thank my lucky stars that my family were not going through that.

Personally, the idea of having to pull my wife and our 3 year old son to safety from flood waters doesn’t bear thinking about.

I learnt about the importance of flood barriers for your home and business premises from the aftermath of what happens if you don’t have proper flood defences in place.

All of the devastation I dealt with on a daily basis could have been prevented if those home owners had flood barriers and other protection fitted.

Then, rather than total devastation, loss of their belongings or job earnings, memories, and more, plus 6 months of homelessness, they could have simply spent a couple of minutes putting up their flood barriers and got straight back to normal life and work after the flood waters passed.

That’s why I started a flood defence company. To stop people like you having to deal with the stress and devastation of flooding and its aftermath.
