Enjoying your hot tub?
Whether it’s warm or cold outside, a hot tub can be relaxing and therapeutic at the end of a long day.
Although soaking in the tub might melt away your worries, you shouldn’t neglect the insurance implications and dangers of owning one while following all safety precautions.
Should you have the unfortunate event of having your hot tub cause water damage to your home, we recommend calling SERVPRO of Geauga County to help you get your home repaired and restored as efficiently as possible. The actions below are some things you can do while waiting for assistance:
- Shut off the water source if possible
- Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the home when access to the power distribution panel is safe from electrical shock
- Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting
- Move any upholstery or valuables
- Don’t enter affected areas if electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers or electrical equipment are exposed to water. Always avoid electrical shock hazards!
It is important to note that hot tubs are generally covered by your homeowner’s insurance, but we do recommend contacting your insurance agent as some policies may not. If your insurance carrier agrees to cover your hot tub, there’ll likely be some changes to your liability coverage.
Regardless, we know decompressing is essential in today’s busy world, and a hot tub is a great way to do this, but please be sure to follow all the guidelines surrounding your hot tub.
