Why Insurance is Important

7/12/2021 (Permalink)

It's important to have insurance for our homes, whether it be a homeowners or renters insurance policy.

It is more common for homeowners to have insurance than for renters to have it. According to a survey conducted by The Insurance Information Institute in 2014, although 95% of homeowners had homeowners insurance, as little as 37% of renters had an insurance policy. Renters insurance is very important and policies usually cover personal contents such as furniture and jewelry in the event of a fire, water damage, or due to theft. The cost of renters insurance is also very affordable, generally at less than $20/month. It can also help cover the cost of living expenses while your residence is being restored.

It is important to also be informed of what your policy includes. For example, earthquakes and flooding from outside water are rarely included and would be a separate policy.

If you don't have insurance, the costs can be excessive. At SERVPRO of Amador/Calaveras Counties we offer competitive pricing and will do our best to work with your budget.

  • A blocked or failed sewer  pipe 

  • Heavy rain and poor drainage causes water to pool around your home

  • Storm sewer backup
