¿Qué cubre el seguro contra inundaciones?

Flood insurance is typically an optional type of property insurance that can help protect your inicio against damage caused by flooding. However, in some cases, your mortgage provider may mandate that you carry it.
Most people think you only need this coverage when you live near water, but you don’t have to have a home along the coast or near a river to need it. Even areas considered at lower risk can be vulnerable to flooding due to many other conditions that can cause it, like poor drainage systems, rapid rainfall accumulations, seasonal snow-melting or even construction run-offs.

7 Tips to Help Protect Your Property From a Flood

After heavy rainfall, the excess water can cause nearby bodies of water like lakes, streams and rivers to overflow, causing flooding that results in property damage. Flooding can happen anywhere and at any time, so it’s important to always be prepared.

Rearrange Downspouts

Downspouts should carry water several feet away from your property to a well-drained area.
Secure Fuel Tanks

Secure Fuel Tanks

Anchor fuel tanks in basements and outside properties. An unanchored fuel tank can be torn free by floodwater and the broken supply line can contaminate your basement. An outside fuel tank can be swept downstream and damage other property.

Check Your Sump Pump

Perform a checkup on your sump pump, if you have one. Examine and clean it, then pour the water into the pit to make sure the discharge hose carries it away from your property to a well-drained area. Be sure the pipe is on sloped ground so it drains well.

Check All Electrical Components

Measure the height of electrical components such as switches, sockets, circuit breakers and wiring to make sure they are 12 inches above the flood line. If you need to make changes, contact a licensed electrician.
Practice your flood evacuation with your family

Practice Makes Perfect

Practice your flood evacuation with your family. Plan a route that everyone knows and practice taking it. Identify an out-of-state relative or family friend to contact in case your family is separated during a serious flood, and make sure everyone in the family knows their contact details.


Your furnace, water heater, washer and dryer should all be 12 inches from your basement floor. To raise them to this level, place them on top of masonry blocks, concrete, or pressure-treated lumber.
Tighten Window Wells

Tighten Window Wells

Make sure window wells at ground level are watertight. Window covers that can be bolted in place are most effective in keeping water out.
Consider flood insurance to protect your home if:
  • You live in a cold climate where the ground freezes and snow accumulates. In settings like this, the ground closest to your house thaws first and melted snow can saturate the unfrozen ground nearby and spill into your basement.2
  • You’re at risk for wildfires. These disasters can scorch the land around your home and destroy all vegetation. In the year following, the lack of vegetation can lead to flash flooding and mudflows during rainy seasons which can ruin your home.3
  • La zona en la que vive experimenta prolongados períodos de frío que hacen que los ríos se congelen. If the water level rises or a thaw breaks the ice into big chunks, those chunks of ice could end up creating a dam, resulting in flooding.2
Don’t assume that disasters like these won’t happen to your home. Los paisajes y los patrones climáticos cambian constantemente y esto puede dar como resultado inundaciones inesperadas. Some areas are even more likely to experience flood damage than they are to suffer fire damage.4 To learn more, contact an insurance agent de The Hartford.
