Most Standard Homeowners Insurance Policies - Do NOT Cover Flood Damage

Flood Damage
Author: ServiceMaster Restore

It’s not always easy to figure out when water damage is and isn’t covered by your insurance policy. Unfortunately, flood damage, even damage caused by an event like Hurricane Ian, is not typically covered by a standard homeowner’s policy. Water damage is one of the most common, and most costly, types of homeowners insurance claims according to the Insurance Information Institute, second only to wind and hail damage claims.

The experts at ServiceMaster have responded to some of the most devastating hurricanes in our country’s history. We leverage our real-world experience to quickly assess your situation, determine the extent of the damage, and do whatever it takes to get your home put back together.

When looking for a disaster restoration company, make sure you choose a reputable company. A company that is licensed, bonded & insured, that you can rely on. Different companies offer a variety of services, not all of which provide the thoroughness required for a restoration project that is caused by a flood.

Six Things To Consider When Hiring A Restoration Company:

1. Do They Have Experience

2. Make Sure They’re Insured

3. Verify Training and Certification Process for Technicians

4. Confirm They’re Licensed and Bonded

5. Review Testimonials

6. Are They Available 24/7

Choosing the right restoration partner doesn’t have to be a difficult process. With the right research and questions, you’ll be able to pick a company that has the experience, and expertise that will meet your needs and restore your peace of mind.
