Water damage can be more extensive than damages caused by fire. Prompt cleanup, drying out and remediation are most important in minimizing additional damages such as mold. A homeowner’s insurance policy doesn’t provide coverage for flood damage, but it does provide coverage for many types of water damage to your home.
A few examples of water damage include:
– A broken/frozen pipe spews water into your home causing extensive damage.
– A heavy rain soaks through the roof, allowing water to drip through your attic or ceiling.
– A hailstorm smashes your window, permitting hail and rain free access into your home.
As a result of water damage, latent damages can very well appear weeks after water and moisture have been removed. It is imperative that all damages be addressed in the presentation of the claim.
