Your home is at risk from a wide range of things and your home insurance policy is going to truly help you feel protected and to recover from things as they occur. That being said, there are some things that you might imagine would be covered that are not. For those that are in the Bourbonnais, IL area, the agents with George Ryan Jr. Insurance Group Inc can help you to get the right coverage for you.
Home insurance policies do not cover the costs of damage that have been caused by pests. The reasoning is that you are likely aware of the pests and this means that you are responsible for any damage that has been done. If you have pests, you are going to need to get the pests cared for before they do cause damage so that you can be sure that you are not going to have a ton of damage to care for and the home is not going to be super damaged.
Damage that is caused by pests is something that can be prevented and that can be repaired. It is not damaged like something that might come on suddenly like a storm or a fire, but rather, something that is prolonged and that does take a great deal of time to get to the point that the damage needs to be repaired. If you are afraid of pests, you can get pest insurance that does help cover some of the costs associated with the removal of pests and the repair after they have been removed.
