Renters insurance is a type of insurance policy that provides coverage for personal property and liability protection for renters. It typically covers losses or damages to personal property caused by covered perils such as fire, theft, vandalism, and water damage. However, it's important to note that most renters insurance policies do not cover pest infestations, including flea infestations. While renters insurance may not typically cover flea infestations, some policies may provide coverage for certain damages that are caused by pests. For example, if your property is damaged as a result of an animal infestation, such as damage to walls, floors, or other structures, your policy may provide coverage for the repairs. In addition, some insurance companies may offer add-on coverage options for pest-related damages, including flea infestations. These add-on options may provide coverage for the cost of hiring a professional exterminator to get rid of the fleas or for any damages caused by the infestation. However, it's important to check with your insurance company to see if these options are available and what specific coverage they provide. Overall, it's important to carefully review your renters insurance policy to understand what is and is not covered, including coverage for pest infestations. If you have questions about your policy or need assistance filing a claim, you can contact your insurance company or speak with a licensed insurance agent for guidance.
