FloodSafe Property Maintenance

A great deal of unnecessary flood damage can be avoided in storms and floods if some simple property maintenance is done regularly. 

  • Ensure your roofs and gutters are in good repair.
  • Regularly clean gutters and drains – as a minimum an annual clean in late Autumn after old leaves have fallen but before potential heavy winter/spring rains and thunderstorm season begins.
  • Keep your yard or balcony free of things which can blow around in the wind or get washed away by floodwaters and cause damage.
