How to prevent flooding damage in Sydney

If your home or building is in an area that you deem to be ‘low-risk,’ you may feel the need to gloss over flood prevention measures. However, as we have seen in recent years, severe weather event floods are happening in areas that we never thought possible and every homeowner needs to be aware and prepared for a flood.

Waterproofing is not only reserved for your bathrooms and laundry. It can also be used throughout your entire home to reduce the damage caused by a potential flood or severe weather event.

The most sure-fire way to prevent flooding damage is to invest in a reliable waterproofing contractor in Sydney.

Why is flooding so dangerous without waterproofing?

Unfortunately, the fact is that freak storms strike without much warning. Stormwater that should drain away can build up and overflow into streets and surrounding houses and businesses. You may also have a burst pipe or damage that will allow rain to enter your home.

No matter the event, it only takes one encounter with floodwaters to cause catastrophic damage to a home or building. If your property is flooded, the repairs will be costly, messy and time-consuming. While insurance may cover some or all of the damage, your home or building could be rendered unusable for a long period, while cleanup and repairs are being completed.

Flooding destroys everything inside a home including furniture, personal items, carpeting, drywall, insulation and cabinetry. It can even leave damage to your foundations and framework.

The bottom line is that it is always better to prevent flooding and damage than it is to clean up, repair and rebuild —even if it is highly unlikely to happen.

What events could cause flooding to my home or business?

When you think of flooding, most people think of a prolonged rain event allowing water to enter your home. The truth is, flooding can be caused by many things and can often come from inside your home.

A flood-affected home will have its value greatly reduced. Common causes can happen without notice and even after repairs, some of which include:

• Loose piping and paving
• Broken taps
• Local dam failures
• Natural weather-related storms
