How Flood Insurance Can Protect You From Financial Hardship (VIDEO)

Many people ask me if they really need Flood Insurance coverage, or if their home is already protected from flood damage by their Homeowner’s Policy.

This video should help you understand everything you need to know about Flood Insurance and help you decide if it’s right for your home.

NOTE: There’s a 30-day waiting period from date of purchase before your policy goes into effect. (In most ALL cases)

Tips to protect your home from water damage

  • KNOW where your main water valve is located so you can shut it off quickly in case of an emergency.
  • REPLACE the hoses on your washing machine, dishwater and other appliances periodically. Consider replacing a rubber hose with a steel-braided one to increase durability and longevity.
  • CLEAN your gutters and downspouts regularly to ensure water moves through them properly and drains away from your foundation.
  • MONITOR your water bill. A bigger water bill may indicate you have a leak somewhere.
  • TEST your sump pump at least once per year to make sure it’s working when you need it most! If your pump doesn’t have an alternate power source, add a battery backup or upgrade to a pump with a water-powered backup.
  • INSPECT your water heater annually for signs of corrosion or leaks. Aging water heaters can weaken over time, increasing their likelihood of rupturing.

Looking for clean free spring water?

Tonight I was reading “Own the Day, Own Your Life” by Aubrey Marcus. He was discussing the importance of starting your day with good clean water not coffee fist. One of the items he recommend was local free spring water….

He recommends the site: Find A Spring

I just checked it out and there is a free local spring near me! If you know of others not listed, they have an option for you to add springs.
