This will save time if you do suffer water damage, and time is valuable because every second wasted could be another precious thing damaged. So search online today, perhaps use a comparison website so you can directly compare the different options, and then write down two or three options just in the case the event occurs where one option is unavailable for some reason. Stick this piece of paper in a safe place, perhaps in a drawer or on the fridge. Then if the unfortunate circumstance does arise you are prepared to deal with it, all you need to do is find the piece of paper and dial one of the numbers, instead of going into full-on stress and panic mode.
