The City of Polk City is pleased to announce a new program for City residents to offer optional repair service plans available through HomeServe USA. The plans offered provide affordable protection from the cost and inconvenience of household plumbing repairs, including water service line leaks, sewer line blockages or breaks and in-home plumbing issues.
City residents are sometimes frustrated when they discover a leaking or blocked service line and then learn that this piping is their responsibility to fix. Many are also unaware that these types of repairs are not covered by basic homeowner’s insurance policies. The City recognized that one way it could help is to offer an optional service program that would help residents faced with this type of costly repair.
The City of Polk City and HomeServe have worked together in creating this program and the communication materials to ensure the program is worthy of Polk City's endorsement. All the marketing, customer service and repairs using local contractors are paid for and managed entirely by HomeServe.
