Water Damage

Natural Disasters

What To Do

Emergency Services

How did this happen?

The intrusion of water or moisture on material over a period of time will cause water damage. Water damage can occur as a result of a burst pipe, a leaking roof, or a malfunctioning pipe while you're away on vacation. Natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires can also result in substantial water damage.

Any type of standing moisture is capable of causing immediate water damage.

How do I know if I have water damage?

Your eyes and nose will tell you whether you have water damage. Among some of the telltale signs are:

  • Rotting wood
  • Wood becomes warped and curls.
  • Hardwood floors may be discolored or buckling.
  • Growth of bacteria, mold, or fungus
  • Rotten smell or mustiness.
  • Glue that is broken down by moisture may cause a sweet smell.
  • Bulging or mushy surfaces may indicate the presence of mold.
  • Rusting of structural elements such as steel
  • Anything built with plywood or Formica delaminates
  • Presence of water spots on the walls or in the ceilings
  • Sagging ceiling
  • Missing or bent shingles and clogged gutters

FLOOD INSURANCE

As the name implies, a standard flood insurance policy, which is written by the National Flood Insurance Program, provides coverage up to the policy limit for damage caused by flood. The dictionary defines "flood" as a rising and overflowing of a body of water onto normally dry land. For insurance purposes, the word "rising" in this definition is the key to distinguishing flood damage from water damage. Generally, damage caused by water that has been on the ground at some point before damaging your home is considered to be flood damage. A handful of examples of flood damage include:

 

  • A nearby river overflows its banks and washes into your home.
  • A heavy rain seeps into your basement because the soil can't absorb the water quickly enough
  • A heavy rain or flash flood causes the hill behind your house to collapse into a mud slide that oozes into your home.

 

Flood damage to your home can be insured only with a flood insurance policy -- no other insurance will cover flood damage. Flood insurance is available through your insurance agent, insurance company or local Federal Emergency Management Office (FEMA). To determine if your home is located in a flood plain, contact your county planning office. If you are living in a flood plain, flood insurance may be an excellent purchase, and may be required by your mortgage lender.

HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE

A homeowners insurance policy doesn't provide coverage for flood damage, but it does provide coverage for many types of water damage to your home. Just the opposite from flood damage, for insurance purposes, water damage is considered to occur when water damages your home before the water comes in contact with the ground. A few examples of water damage include:

 

  • A hailstorm smashes your window, permitting hail and rain free access into your home.
  • A heavy rain soaks through the roof, allowing water to drip through your attic or ceiling.
  • A broken water pipe spews water into your home. Example: Washing machine, Toilet overflow, Refrigerator line, etc.

 

It's important to note that flood insurance and homeowners insurance do not duplicate coverage for water damage. Instead, they complement each other.

 

It is up to you to talk to your insurance agent or insurance company about flood insurance and homeowners insurance, and then decide which insurance coverage you need to protect your home, its contents and your family.
