HOW AVOID POTENTIAL WATER DAMAGE
Now the Autum leaf drop is happening and winter is coming it is a good idea to check your drains regularly, especially after a storm. It only takes a couple of minutes to clear any debris from gulleys and gratings which can block the efficient water flow.
Excess and standing water can cause flooding which in itself could be a hidden danger and can cause unseen damage to buildings and pathways. This type of damage is not always apparent and can show itself as rising damp, mould and even subsidence causing structural cracks which can be very expensive to remedy and can be easily avoided by simple steps.
