Commercial Flood Insurance
Orlando | Sarasota | West Palm Beach
You may think that your current set of business insurance policies will cover flooding, but that’s not necessarily the case. Your business is an important investment that you take very seriously – it is important to identify all potential threats to your company and do what you can to minimize them.
In the Florida area especially, water damage is a big risk. With commercial flood insurance, it’s possible to reduce the potential of extreme downtime or even bankruptcy due to flooding.
What is Commercial Water Damage Insurance?
Commercial flood insurance is a policy designed to help you recover if your place of business is damaged by any type of water damage. The provisions within the policy will help to restore your building and landscape after floodwaters have receded. Remember that business-owned vehicles are not usually included in the scope of this coverage.
Flood insurance plans will typically replace items like damaged furnishings, computers, servers, and even general office and manufacturing equipment. Protections for the electrical wiring and the plumbing are also likely to be included. The goal is to ensure you have the resources to undo any damage and continue to serve your customers.

Federal Disaster Aid vs. Flood Insurance
It’s true that federal disaster aid will cover much of the same damage as flood insurance. However, depending on the type of flooding in your area, it may or may not lead to the declaration of a federal disaster. Without that declaration, you are left to undo all damage without federal aid.
With commercial water damage insurance in place, it’s possible to begin the cleanup and restoration of your business without having to wade through governmental red tape. Even if a federal disaster is declared, you don’t have to wait – it’s possible to file claims with your insurance provider immediately. Unlike federal aid, you won’t have to repay the funds provided by your provider once the insurance claim is approved.
Is Commercial Water Damage Insurance Required?
If your business operation is located in what’s considered a high-risk flood area, you do need to invest in this type of coverage. There may be local as well as state and federal requirements to do so. An agent can help you determine if you are in such an area.
Commercial Flood Insurance Quotes
When seeking commercial flood insurance quotes, remember that your location will impact the cost of coverage. The type of business you operate, the number of employees, and the nature of your facilities will also make a difference.
Even if you don’t think your business is at risk, it’s beneficial to find out what sort of commercial flood insurance quotes are available for your company. One highly unusual event could lead to flooding and the destruction of your business. Be prepared for the worst even as you hope for the best.Back to Business Insurance
