Flood in My Kitchen!


Something happened at home last week, which got me seriously considering upgrading my home insurance to something more comprehensive. I was inside my office working on some stuff when B who was cleaning the sink frantically called to me for help from the kitchen. I'm not exactly sure what happened but he later told me while wiping the area around the kitchen tap, it somehow broke and water came gushing out!
hah

The whole kitchen floor was flooded as water came pouring out like there was no tomorrow! My cats were curious to see the chaos going on in the kitchen so I hurriedly put them inside their kitty condo. They weren't happy about it but I couldn't risk them playing in the water and me falling over them since the whole kitchen was all wet and slippery!
adus



There was no way to turn off the tap since it already broke so while B tried his best to hold down the water using whatever was nearby, I had to rush down to get help from our security. The main tap had to be turned off from the main source, which we residents have no access to so we had to wait for another 20 minutes before the maintenance guy arrived to shut the main water supply to my unit! tension

To make a long story short, we ended up with a very wet kitchen that night and RM300 poorer the next day after the plumber arrived to fix the mess. Now, if I had a more comprehensive home insurance, something from House Insurance Ireland perhaps; I could have enjoyed additional coverage which includes loss or damage due to flood, burst pipes and so on. Unfortunately for me, our home insurance just covers the basic home aspects, which definitely does not include a burst pipe in our kitchen.

I do a lot of insurance translation for my clients and it's great to see more insurance policies are diversified to include almost all major losses and accidents. PIBA SURE for instance comprises a network of independent and reliable insurance brokers. All members are regulated by the Financial Regulator and hold membership in the Professional Insurance Brokers Association (PIBA).

Offering you competitively priced products from top Home and Car Insurance Companies in Ireland, PIBA SURE insures you and your needs in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. Travel insurance is also available if that is what you're looking for.

All this insurance talk reminds me that my health policy is due for renewal next month. I might as well look into a home insurance upgrade from my current insurer. You know what they say, once beaten twice shy. So it's better to be safe than sorry; starting with greater coverage for my home sweet home! peluk
