April 24 Update - Check Your Business or Home Daily
Hi again everyone, Bruce Mackay from Mackay Insurance.
You know, Covid-19 has impacted us in many ways. One of which, for business owners, is the shutdown of their business. For your buildings, you do need to check on them, and we recommend that you check on them daily.
There's a few things that you should be checking on:
First, check your sump pump. Make sure it's in working order. Also check your water systems, making sure if you have any sprinkler systems, fire extinguisers, or your plumbing - check for leaks.
Second, check on your heating and thermostat. Make sure your building is properly maintained.
Third, check on your roof. You want to make sure that there's not any missing shingles or any leaks.
Fourth, check on your property. It's a good practice to check it daily.
Also, if you're a homeowner, and there's been a change in your home or if you've had a rental home and it's now vacant. You do need to let your insurance company know. These are things that sometimes people forget. We recommend that if you have any changed use of your building, that you contact us as soon as possible.
These are trying times, and we're here to help. If you need any more information, please contact your broker or give us a call at 613-966-5740. You can also email us at email@example.com.
Please be safe.
