Help Protect Your Home from Spring Water Damage

Flooding and sewer/septic backup damage can be costly and involve a time-consuming cleanup. But, there are steps you can take to help mitigate the risk. Be proactive by:

  • Ensure important documents are not stored in your basement
  • Install a sump pump and backup power
  • Keep all drains clean and clear
  • Remove debris from around storm drains and eaves troughs
  • Correct grading around foundation if needed
  • Evaluate any areas water can breach your home, such as basement windows and doors
  • Discuss your coverages and exclusions with your insurance broker before a loss occurs
