Water and Flood Damage Claims
Water damage or flood is one of the most common concerns for many homeowners in Florida. A flood is a natural disaster that can’t be prevented no matter what!!!
Hurricanes, tornadoes, and many other natural disasters are the leading causes of flood and water damage.
This has become one of the major issues for many states. Especially if you live in Florida, this can be a huge problem as this state is vulnerable to floods and hurricanes. So people must take flood insurance seriously because you never know when your valued property might run out of luck.
Flood Strikes: Homeowner Insurance Claim
Flood damages have increased dramatically in recent years. It has been estimated that around 1 out of every 50 homeowners are victims of a flood disaster and file their insurance company claims.
And we believe you must have started to process the questions; “What are the things that flood damage insurance claim covers?”, “Is it even worth it?”, “Do I need the help of a public adjuster for this?"
Types of Damage Matters
Now just before we jump into an insurance policy, we need to know about it first.
Most of the insurance companies cover the destruction caused by water, but not “gradual damage.”
What it actually means is that if something happens to your home out of the blue, most of the insurance companies will take the liabilities of it.
But if the damage is slow, like leaking from a pipe or something like that, there are higher chances the insurance company is not going to even consider paying you.
What More You Need To Know About Gradual Damage?
As you have already read about “gradual damage”, now you’ll know more about its ins and outs.
Gradual water damages are those damages that happen slowly to your property over time. Gradual damage is a widespread headache for many homeowners when it comes to insurance claims.
For instance, you have a painted wall, and with time the paint slowly chips off the wall, and there’s a time when the whole wall is uncovered.
The reason why insurance companies don’t take gradual damage on their shoulders because, according to them, you could already have repaired gradual water damage on your own when it had already started.
Your home is piled with pipes and electrical wiring. It looks beautiful and elegant inside your walls, but inside those walls are layers of wires and pipes all over each other like layers, making your home run.
So it’s necessary for you to look after the maintenance of your house. That’s why most of the insurance companies don’t cover gradual damage.
But in cases like where you have a broken pipe already listed in your home insurance settlement, and it causes a flood at your home, the insurance company will give a portion of the claim as it was already enlisted on your insurance.
Therefore, if you don’t want these uninvited problems to knock on your doorways, always go for regular maintenance of your property.
