Explaining The Difference Between Flood Insurance And Traditional Water Damage

Pittsburgh, PA is prone to heavy rainfall during seasonal changes. The aftermath of these storms is potential flooding. Flooding has the ability to cause serious damage to your property and personal items. Flood insurance protects your assets. You are covered if severe flooding damages the interior and exterior of your property, as well as your personal items. While researching coverage, keep in mind that there is a difference between flood damage and traditional water damage.

Flood damage is caused as a result of natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornados, and severe thunderstorms. These powerful storms leave a lasting impact. There may be an overflow of surface water. The rapid accumulation may cause a mudflow. All of these variables can cause a current of excess water to infiltrate your property and cause damage. You can rely on flood insurance during these situations.

You cannot use flood insurance to protect your assets if they suffer traditional water damage. Examples of traditional water damage include a busted pipe that causes damage throughout your property or a leaking toilet. You’ll have to use your home or renters insurance to cover those damages.

One key difference is that traditional water damage may only impact your property. Flood damage often originates from a natural source and impacts an entire area of land. That means your neighbors are likely to have problems as well. It’s also important that you maintain proper maintenance on your home.
