How do you protect your air bricks from floodwater?

Securing your air bricks against floodwater is essential in maintaining your home’s structural integrity and internal climate, preventing the typical damage floods inflict.

A key component of a successful air brick flood defence plan is using a suitable air brick flood barrier designed to meet these specific challenges.

Our Floodbrick product excels in providing sturdy and dependable protection for your air bricks from floodwater invasion. This innovative barrier is carefully designed to block air bricks from incoming water, effectively stopping it from penetrating and harming your home. The Floodbrick acts as a watertight barrier around these vital ventilation points, ensuring your property stays dry and secure during a flood.

How do you prepare air bricks for a flood?

Preparing your air bricks to withstand a flood requires a few critical preparatory actions:

Routine Checks: Regularly examine your air bricks to make sure they're free from obstruction and working as intended. Conducting these inspections regularly aids in detecting any potential problems that could affect their efficiency in the event of flooding.

Installing Floodbrick Covers: Before the onset of the flood season, it's wise to equip all your home's exposed air bricks with Floodbrick covers. Taking this step in advance can significantly impact whether your home stays dry or suffers considerable water damage.

Evaluating After the Flood: Following a flooding incident and the subsequent removal of the Floodbrick covers, it's essential to reassess your air bricks. Double-check to confirm they're not blocked and are in good working condition, ensuring they're prepared to resume their normal ventilation role.

Safeguarding your air bricks from floodwater plays a pivotal role in a thorough home flood defence strategy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an airbrick cover, and why is it necessary?

An airbrick cover is a device designed to temporarily seal off airbricks in your home to prevent floodwaters from entering through these ventilation points. Airbricks are necessary for proper ventilation under floors and within cavities to prevent damp; however, during a flood, they can allow water to enter.
