First review your insurance policy. What does it cover? Does it cover floods? Does it cover wind mitigation? Unfortunately, standard homeowners’ and renters’ insurance policies often cover wind damage, but not groundwater flooding. That requires separate coverage from the National Flood Insurance Program or a private insurance company.
Second, document your losses! This is very important. Not doing so can impact your claim. If it is possible, take pictures and video. Include a list of damages and personal items. This could range from clothes to electronics.
Let’s say for example you have water damage. Do you know what it will take to get your property back to the pre-loss condition after suffering a water loss? Did the water wick up your walls? That’s right, it can and does soak up into your drywall like a sponge which can eventually lead to mold growth.
The bottom line is after water damage, property owners often face enormous repair bills and obstacles that can lead to an even larger loss. You don’t have to face your insurance company alone.
