Things You Didn’t Know About Summer Storms and Your Apartment
A recent survey from a national insurance provider found that 59 percent of adults ages 23 to 29 do not have renter’s insurance. And last time we checked, 100 percent of renters are susceptible to damages from summer storms. How so? Glad you asked.
- Don’t get caught in the dark. Did you know that during the summer months most power surges don’t originate from lightning? More often it’s from the power being restored by the electric company after repairs have been made from storm damage.
Gotham says: Protect your electronics by using a surge protector. Of course, another way to protect yourself is to get apartment insurance.
- Room with a view. Fierce summer storm winds can harm the exterior of a building or break a window, and then hurl debris through that damaged wall or window. In fact, water damage to the interior of a co-op or condo is the most common claim of all.
