Understand Your Insurance PolicyFlooded living room

Take a closer look at your insurance policy to make sure it covers flood damage. Some policies don’t address floods, flash floods or water at all, while others may only cover certain situations or types of water damage. If your policy is unclear, reach out to your insurance provider for clarification.

Prepare Materials

It’s always a good idea to keep certain materials in your home in case of flooding. Sandbags, plywood, plastic sheeting, nails and a shovel are all materials that will come in handy after a flood occurs.
