Discount of flood insurance in Glenview?

11/13/2016 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Glenview we have seen our fair share of flooded homes.'

If you do not have flood insurance, talk to your insurance agent. Most homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover damage from floods. Flood insurance is only available to those participating communities in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Because of our floodplain management programs that attempt to protect us from the multiple flooding hazards, Glenview is part of the NFIP and, thus, residents are able to obtain flood insurance. Additionally, because the Village participates in FEMA’s CRS program, flood insurance premiums are discounted.

Make sure to check your policy to ensure you have adequate coverage. Usually these policies cover the building structure, but not the contents. There is a 30-day waiting period before flood insurance coverage becomes effective. Plan ahead; do not wait until a flood is predicted before purchasing flood insurance.

If you are building inside the floodplain, the purchase of flood insurance is mandatory if using a federally regulated/insured bank for a loan. In the unfortunate situation your home or business does flood, rest assure SERVPRO of Glenview is only a phone call away. 24 hours a day 365 days a year we are here to serve you and make it "Like it Never Even Happened!"
