images (17)Water is a funny thing.  It’s the one thing that human beings can’t live without, yet it can cause us some much trouble.  Hurricanes and torrential rains can wreak havoc on communities, but at the same time rivers and lakes provide cities and towns with priceless resources that make the whole system work.  But when it comes to water in your home, there’s really no avoiding it once it wiggles its way into the structure or flooring.

It doesn’t really matter how the water seeps into your home, whether it’s from a previous storm, melting snow, a burst pipe, or seasonal flooding. Water in your home or apartment is a serious issue that needs to be taken care of immediately.  Because remember, standard CT homeowners insurance DOES NOT cover flood damage, that’s why having a flood policy is so important.

Now the obvious damage from flooding occurs in your home’s flooring, structure, and foundation.  But what many people fail to realize is that water damage can also easily produce nasty mold growth that can have some serious health effects on your and your family.  THAT’S why this is so important and should be taken very seriously.  If you want to make sure that your home or apartment is fully covered for flooding and/or water damage, give us a call at Paradiso Insurance today!
