The SES are advising residents to take the following steps in order to prepare their property for the week ahead. – Clean gutters and downpipes – or arrange a contractor to do this for you. If water has no path of egress from your roofline, it will find its way into your roof space, walls and eaves. – Clean storm water drainage pits and driveway grate drains so to allow them to properly direct the flow of water away from your property. – Trim trees and branches that could potentially fall on your home or property. – Fix any damage to your roof, including broken or missing tiles, or arrange a contractor to do this for you. Buildup of dirt should also be removed as it can block the drainage channels on the underside of tiles. Don’t drive, ride or walk through floodwaters.
