How to Insure Westchester County Homes for Disaster

Flood insurance is an important part of protecting yourself during the east coast’s hurricane season.  While Westchester, Dutchess, and Putnam counties aren’t usually in the sights of category III hurricanes, our proximity to the Hudson River and low elevation makes our homes vulnerable to flash flooding and mudslides.

Our expertise, however, isn’t simply our ability to provide you the best coverage.  We also have five important tips for those Westchester residents with the highest risk of flooding and water damage.

  1. Move your electronics out of the basement and off of the floor.
  2. Invest in a pump and a dehumidifier to minimize the water damage and mold.
  3. Keep the kids away from damage areas.
  4. Ensure all basement and other vulnerable windows are properly sealed.
  5. Act quickly.

While they may be some of the first things considered, they’re also some of the first things forgotten.  Yorktown Heights Insurance Agency partners with State Farm, Progressive, and other agencies to give you the highest quality rates, but it’s up to you to ensure you have the highest quality protection.
