Have you ever experienced a wet basement after a heavy rain? Or a leaky roof that's caused damage to your ceiling? If you have, you know how costly it can be to repair damage due to water in your home. Whether you've dealt with water issues in the past, or you've been fortunate enough to avoid them, it's important to keep up a maintenance routine that waterproofs your home and to consider tools that can help you detect water infiltration at its earliest stages.
There are several low-cost preventative measures you can take to protect your home against water damage this spring. Here are a few suggestions:
Depending on your needs and budget, there are a few different types of water detection systems available that can alert you to the presence of water in your home.
They range in price and quality so it's a good idea to do some research to identify what will work best in your home. With the OMA Insurance Program, you may qualify for a discount up to 10%, depending on the system you install.
It's important to have home insurance coverage that protects you against the potential high costs of water damage. Most home insurance policies will automatically include coverage for water damage due to leaks from electric household appliances (such as a dishwasher), and plumbing problems such as a burst pipe.
With the OMA Home and Auto Insurance Program, you could also qualify for optional water damage coverage, which protects you against water damage due to seepage of rain or snow through the roof or walls, or due to sewer back up.
