At UKFB we take calls every day from people asking for advice and product recommendations to help protect their properties from flooding. A popular question we get asked is ‘How do we know if our property is at risk…?’ Continue reading to find out how.
The Environment Agency recently used their knowledge and resources to launch the ‘Flood Aware’ campaign, advising property owners to be prepared. This campaign has created a constant buzz on social networks and given homeowners the reassurance that there are solutions available to limit the damage flooding can cause.
UKFB would always recommend the Environment Agency as your first port of call when checking the flood risk to your property. Their interactive website offers a live flood risk map to indicate the areas that are at risk of flooding. By inputting your postcode, the feature will show you by shaded areas exactly where the risk lies in your area, click here to find out if you are at risk.
The website also gives useful tips and advice on what to do pre and post flood, click here to read more on how to prepare.
