FLOOD DAMAGE vs WATER DAMAGE
While considered different from one another, these two are not without their similarities. They can both wreak havoc on a home by submerging your belongings, causing structural damage, and making you lose important items that are irreplaceable. The cleanup process for both is also similar but the most common misconception is often realized by people when they try to file a water damage claim for flooding and find out that flooding is a different thing altogether.
It is actually easy to differentiate flood damage from water damage. All you need to remember is when a home suffers from flood damage, it is usually one of many homes that suffer from the same problem. When your home suffers from water damage, your home is the only one that has such an issue.
When flooding happens, it helps for you to have flood damage coverage on your insurance since water damage does not cover any repairs and restoration that is done due to floods. Before any flooding occurs, you should check your insurance policy for this coverage. If you live in a flood-prone area, you should have the additional coverage added to your policy.
