Preparing For Spring Run Off

Are you ready for spring?backyard sandbags

Living in the Okanagan offers year-round beautiful weather, and with winter now behind us we are heading into spring. Spring can be full of surprises, we can experience anything from a week-long stretch of sunshine and warmer temps to a week of heavy rain and cooler temps. This can bring many additional problems such as excessive spring run off and localized flooding, leading to disastrous and costly property damages. If you find yourself in an emergency situation, the most important decision you will make is how to deal with it.

We at Stutters can provide immediate and professional emergency disaster services such as water extractioninfrared moisture detection, dry air technology, content cleaning, odour control, mould remediation, and storm damage restoration.

Your home and property are some of the most valuable and important investments for many Canadians. Protecting those investments should be at the forefront of any owner’s mind, and many proactive steps should be taken or at least considered when choosing an appropriate insurance plan.


 Many people would be surprised to know that most home insurance policies do not protect against flood damage.

Most policies offer comprehensive protection against a variety of losses, including sewer backup and water damage, but many policies do not currently protect against flood damage. The differences between water damage and flood damage are often not realized until a disaster happens, and you are left to recover without the aid of an insurance company.

Flood Damage

  • Natural dam failure
  • Spring snow-melt runoff
  • Storm rainfall
  • Structural failure
  • Tidal or coastal flooding
Water Damage

  • Appliance failure
    (ie. dishwasher, laundry washing machine, hot water tank)
  • Faulty plumbing
    (ie. toilet or shower seal, leaky basement pipes, sewer backup)
  • Man-made accidents
    (ie. overflowing sinks, spilled water)

Floods can be the result of overflowing rivers or streams, the inability of underground infrastructure to drain properly, or the combination of wind, waves, and high tides near coastal regions causing the ocean to spill into residential or commercial communities.

Whatever the situation may be, it cannot be stressed enough to ensure you are covered by your insurance policy.
