Water Damage Flood TIPS
Water damage can originate from many different sources, such as sump pump failure, hot water heater leak, broken pipe, cracked pipe, pipe freeze, washing machine overflow and natural flooding from bad weather. Hire a reputable plumber to repair leaking pipes.
If the flooding is sewage, special precautions are taken to ensure a thorough clean up.
Most damage caused by bad weather (floods, snow, rain & ice) is considered flood damage and may not be covered by homeowners insurance. You should check with your insurance agent regarding insurance coverage for a flood. Certain areas are prone to rising water and necessary precautions should be taken.
