With a great many houses dating back to the early 1900’s, Putney is one of the nicest areas to live in greater London.
For beautiful riverside scenery, excellent shopping and vibrant nightlife, it’s hard to beat Putney. Located in south-west London near to Fulham, Wandsworth and Roehampton, Putney has in recent years become a sought-after address, with property prices soaring.
Putney Bridge is the starting point for the traditional Oxford and Cambridge boat race and the towpath is used by walkers and cyclists taking advantage of the wonderful river views. Putney has excellent links to central London, which makes it a very popular area to reside.
Although it is lovely to admire the water from a distance it is quite another issue when you find that it is an unwelcome guest in your home! It can be extremely distressing to discover a leak or any other type of water penetration which can cause great destruction to the fabric and contents of a building.
There are a number of causes of water damage, including leaking plumbing possibly from a flat above, a leaking roof or a burst pipe in your loft or under your floor. The worst case scenario is flooding from a burst water main, overflowing river or a high water table due to long periods or rain. Whatever the cause, the following course of action should be taken without delay:
Locate the valve and turn off the water supply. (It is most advisable to identify the whereabouts of this as soon as you move into a property)
Isolate the electricity around the affected areas
