Risk Management Resource  

Did you know that water damage is second only to fire when it comes to insurance claims?

Issues can be caused by rain and weather-related events, underground sources, and even the improper installation of piping and drains. If not attended to immediately, damage can quickly spread to other areas and cause significant property loss.

Having the proper water damage protocols in place, along with adequate planning and continuous property monitoring, can go a long way in helping to mitigate this risk—saving both time and money. 

To help you develop a water damage risk management program, Federated has created this guide, which outlines best practices to consider, including: 

Key program components
Identifying potential for leaks
Handling unwelcomed water
Minimizing your risk potential
Establishing an emergency response team
Documentation and recordkeeping 
Use of water management devices

While this resource references construction sites, the principles are applicable to all property owners and can help prevent water damage caused by plumbing fixtures, sprinkler lines, roof surfaces and drain lines, window and door openings, HVAC condensation, and more. 

A water damage program can be used broadly or be tailored to individual properties or business locations, and it should outline any potential areas of concern, as well as detection, prevention, and emergency procedures. 

You’ve worked hard to create a successful business, but do you have a plan to get the most out of what you’ve built? 

The day-to-day responsibilities of managing a successful business can hold you back from this important long-term thinking. Exiting a business is a process, not an event, and the right opportunity can come to you unexpectedly. So, where do you start? Once you’ve taken MNP’s succession readiness survey, we’ll send you a Succession Planning Checklist. You have the option to leave your contact info to receive a benchmarking report and compare results against others in the industry.
