Article Summary: 

Homeowners insurance may cover certain types of water damage, particularly if it is sudden or accidental. Examples include burst pipes or a fire sprinkler system activation. However, gradual damage or damage from external sources like floods or sewer backups may not be covered. It is important to understand your policy and build a relationship with your insurance agent to maximize your coverage. Additional tips include exploring supplemental insurance for flood damage, keeping a home inventory, and using professional restoration services like Rainbow Restoration for water damage remediation.
