Many people don’t carry flood coverage on their cars or their homes thinking that floods just don’t happen in the areas that they are in.  Too many times they are completely wrong and have to unnecessarily suffer the consequences of flooding.  The truth is that flooding and water damage can happen anywhere.  You don’t have to live on the banks of a river to one day be dealing with flood water damage repair. At any time a home could accidentally spring a leak in the bathroom or kitchen or even worse, in a pipe behind a wall.  If you aren’t prepared, the cost of water damage repair could get out of control.  When water builds up in between walls and sits it can cause sever property damage and lower the value of your home.  One of the biggest problems with water is also it’s biggest asset, it’s fluidity allows it to go almost anywhere.  That means that even if you cleaned up a leak in the kitchen you could still end up with damage to the flooring under the carpet in the next room if the water spread and wasn’t cleaned up properly.
