Many people have a general perception that floods occur only during heavy showers or extremely bad weather. Flooding can happen anywhere and at any place. The ever growing cities like London can have floods any day. Flooding can occur due to many different factors.
The drainage system is very old in some parts, especially in London. Flooded roads are due to water logging in the drainage systems.
Drainage systems are constructed with concrete but are very delicate in nature. Even the excessive falling of leaves during autumn can clog the drains and make them overflow, causing severe flooding. Many times it is a main water pipe that has burst. This overflow of water, if not attended in time, can cause severe damage to property and health.
The floods due to house pipe leaks and blockages can damage property to a great extent. There are natural floods also where the rivers are over full. These can cause further damage if the drainage systems are not clear for water to drain away. You can seek the services of a professional drain maintenance company to help you.
