Flood Damage Insurance Policy For Your Dallas Area Home
Flood Damage Insurance
You carry auto insurance, life insurance, pet insurance, home insurance, and even pay for appliance warranties, yet you fail to protect your home against costly water line damage or in-home plumbing emergencies.
Pipes in the attic of your Dallas area home can cause flood damage that you might not recover from easily. Clogs, leaks, or broken pipes, release hundreds of gallons of water into your home within minutes. Whether the leak is large or small, over time, it can affect unprotected building materials, insulation, and the structural stability of your home.
Do you know how old the water lines in your attic are? The average lifespan of a water pipe in your home is 20-years, with the majority of homes throughout the United States containing water lines older than 47-years. Knowing the age of your pipes can help you assess whether professional assistance from a company like SERVPRO is necessary.
However, having an expertly trained flood damage specialist from SERVPRO perform an inspection never hurts. You may have water lines from your water heater running through your attic that distributes hot water throughout your home. If even one of these lines has a problem, you can find yourself dealing with extensive flood damage. Thinking that you are safe because you purchased a new home can leave you ill-prepared for what might happen as well.
Your ventilation system also poses extreme problems when not maintained properly. The condensation lines or drain pan of your HVAC system receive damage over time, and major malfunctions in the unit can send water spewing everywhere, without warning. All it takes is a single leak to cause excessive damage; it never hurts to make preparations to deal with these types of problems.
