Preventing Flood Damage
According to the National Flood Insurance Program, flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States, causing $2.7 billion in losses between 2001 and 2010. Most homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover flooding, so it may be necessary to buy a separate flood policy for your home.
Three Key Steps
Here are a couple of tips to keep water from entering your home during a heavy rain event:
- Fix foundation leaks that may allow water to enter your home.
- Make sure your roof is secure and protected.
- Clear gutters and drains.
If water ever floods your home, getting someone on-site as soon as possible is key to keeping the amount of damage to a minimum.
