It's important to know that every policy is different. The following information is just from years of experience in the industry dealing with various insurance companies and clients. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you read your policy before taking action. We do not take responsibility for decisions you make based on the information provided on this website.
Regardless of how water has damaged your property, it's important to take action immediately. Most insurance policies will not cover water damage from floods; however they WILL cover the costs if the flood water came in through a broken window caused by a storm or a hole in the roof, or if your sump pump failed causing the flooding.
Basically, if there is any evidence that the water damage was caused by anything not covered in your policy, the insurance company will not cover the costs. It's also important to know that if you ignore the problem and do not call your insurance company or a specialist you may be at fault! Secondary damages caused by failing to call a professional will not be covered by your insurance company. This includes mold.
