Review your Insurance Policy
When one thinks of a water damage incident they may not think of it in a context of their own home, if they even think about it at all. SERVPRO of Hockessin / Elsmere sees water damages happen every day and at different times of the day. Reviewing or speaking with your homeowner’s insurance company or agent can be helpful. An extension of that would be to read your policy in detail and ask your agent to go over or explain some of its content. Sewer back up if an often over looked item in policies. If you are a renter and not a homeowner you should still have a contents insurance policy. Learn where the water shut off valve is in your home. Knowing where that is can be helpful in the event of an emergency.
