Why should you have your flood mitigation products serviced annually?
It is recommended that flood mitigation products be maintained annually to ensure they are in optimum working condition. Your home is a busy place, which can lead to parts being accidently damaged and/or the loss of key parts.
Without servicing, the products may not be fit for purpose in an emergency and the guarantee on the products will expire and become void.
The service will include a full report and a certificate, which is useful to:
Display to your insurer that your flood mitigation products are in effective working condition.
Ensure you get the maximum life out of your flood mitigation products.
Provide peace of mind that your flood products will function correctly should flooding occur.
Extend your product guarantee by a further 12 months (to a maximum of 5 years).
We will provide a full report of your flood mitigation products so that you have peace of mind that your products will be effective in the event of an emergency. This maintenance includes:

Check and / or replace silicon and seals that seal the flood products to the fabric of the building / aperture.
