Sewage Backups. Are you Covered?
This past year my Daughter had the unpleasant experience of having a Sewage backup in her home in Maumee Ohio. Thankfully I work for SERVPRO of Sylvania/West Toledo so I knew the steps we needed to take. What I didn't realize was she had never added optional sewage backup coverage to her policy. A lot of people do not realize that even though many water damages to your home are covered under your homeowners policy, sewage backup is most likely not. A sewage backup requires immediate proper clean-up that can be very expensive as well it can result in damage to carpets, walls, furniture and other personal property that will be costly to replace.The cost of adding the coverage to your policy is minimal in comparison. Needless to say she is now covered!
