Preventing Groundwater Flooding: Actions to Protect Your Property

Protecting your home or business from groundwater flooding is important, especially if you live in areas more prone to it. Groundwater flooding can occur quickly, for instance during times of heavy rainfall, or over a period of time if the water table gradually rises. It can cause damage to any items stored in your basement, as well as electrics if it is not properly protected.

Preventing flooding of any kind is vital, but knowing how best to protect against groundwater flooding can be difficult. Here at London Waterproofing Solutions, we look at the most vulnerable areas and the methods you can use to protect your property from groundwater flooding.

Early Warning Signs of Groundwater Flooding

Flooding is a concern for many homeowners, especially when autumn closes in. For a number of people, the focus is on surface water flooding, where a sudden increase in river levels can lead to burst banks or waves and spray can cause coastal flooding.  Groundwater flooding, however, is an ever-present danger that homeowners and businesses need to be aware of. It has a much slower rate, sometimes taking days, weeks, or even months to happen, and can last for just as long.
