Flood Insurance Cures Water Damage

Jul 16, 2008
Did you realize that even if your home has been flooded by only two or three inches of water the cost of having it cleaned up and repaired can be as much as ten thousand dollars or more? Just imagine what the cost could be if you had a flood that put your home in several feet or more? The amount to repair and restore can be staggering. It has ruined so many financially because they were flooded in their home or business and had no insurance coverage that would take care of flood damage.

Many mortgage companies and banks require flood coverage these days because of the risk of flooding. Did you know that there is a risk of flooding in all fifty states? Almost anywhere that you live can run the risk of being flooded either because of heavy rainfall, snow melting, rivers, streams, creeks, lakes, and not to mention just a good old break in plumbing some where in the house. Even if you are not required to have flood insurance because your rent a home or your home is already paid for, what would you do if you were flooded? You would still have to repair the home you own or you would have to replace the items you lose if you rent and the landlord has no coverage.

Having no flood coverage is just terribly risky even if your area has not seen a flood in years. It does not mean that it can not or will not happen.. The weather patterns can not be counted on to do what they always have in the past. The outlook for weather conditions some believe will be even worse in the future. Of course, we have no real way of knowing how bad things may or may not get, but the point is will you be prepared? Having insurance to cover flooding will mean the difference in whether you will be financially crippled or not if you have to borrow money to repair the home and replace all your things. If it is your business that is destroyed and uninsured, how will you even go back to work there?

There are more and more companies offering good flood coverage. They are having to because of the fierce demand from the public to be protected. The risk of being flooded during a thirty year home mortgage is actually greater than the risk a home might be in from a fire. A lot of people probably do not realize this either.
