Will my insurance cover the cost of the water damage?
It really just depends on your policy. Typically, you're covered by any water loss that occurs as a result of something within the walls of your property malfunctioning. So if something like a toilet or sink backs-up and overflows, or a pipe in the ceiling or wall bursts and sends water streaming into your apartment, those things are usually covered. But if you leave a window open during a heavy rain storm, it might not be covered.
Water damage describes a large number of possible losses caused by water intruding where it will enable attack of a material or system by destructive processes such as rotting of wood, growth, rusting of steel, de-laminating of materials such as plywood, and many, many others.
The damage may be imperceptibly slow and minor, such as water spots that could eventually mar a surface, or it may be instantaneous and catastrophic such as flooding. However quickly it occurs, water damage is a major contributor to loss of property.
An insurance policy may cover the costs associated with water damage and the process of water damage restoration. While a common cause of residential water damage is often the failure of a sump pump, many homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover the associated costs without an addendum that adds to the monthly premium of the policy. Often, the verbiage of this addendum is similar to "Sewer and Drain Coverage.”
Keep in mind that insurance deductibles are really high on these days if the amount of water is not excessive. Sometimes is not necessary to have and insurance claim. RestorClean can provide the industrial drying equipment and professional services to get the job done right.
Water damage can originate by different sources such as:
- Bad weather (snow, rain, floods)
- Broken dishwasher hose
- Broken pipes
- Clogged toilet
- Dishwasher leak
- Foundation cracks
- Leaking roof

- Washing machine overflow
As far as insurance coverage is concerned, most damage caused by bad weather is considered flood damage and normally is not covered under home insurance. Coverage for bad weather would usually require flood insurance.
