Needs Since 1923
Commercial Flood Insurance
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States, affecting every state. Flooding can be caused by storms, dams or levees breaking, new development changing how water flows above and below ground, heavy rain, snowmelt and much more. It can occur anywhere, often with little or no warning, at any time of the year.
Please note that business insurance policies DO NOT cover flood damage.
Main Street America offers affordable business flood insurance backed by the federal government’s National Flood Insurance Program. A flood insurance policy can provide the specialized coverage you need to help protect your commercial business. We offer tailored property protection solutions for high value, complex risks across a wide array of industries.
Importance of Flood Coverage
Flood coverage is available to protect your commercial building and contents. The damage from a flood is not covered under a standard businessowner’s policy.
Did you know?
Floods are the most common and most destructive natural disaster in the United States.
More than 20 percent of flood claims come from properties outside high‑risk zones.
Flood insurance can pay regardless of whether or not there is a Presidential Disaster Declaration.
One inch of water in your business can cause more than $25,000 in damage.
Ninety percent of all natural disasters involve flooding.
All properties are in a flood zone – it’s a matter of whether it’s designated as a low, moderate or high‑risk area.
No property is completely safe from potential flooding. Flood insurance can be the difference between recovering and being financially devastated – why risk it? When a flood policy is purchased, there is a 30-day wait before coverage takes effect. Your independent agent can help you obtain this very important coverage.
