Innsbruck – During the first tough lockdown, many used the time to beautify their homes. At the latest after the opening of the hardware store it started, the big hammering and drilling, as well as the significantly high number of accidents in manual work shortly afterwards showed. And when the gates of the furniture stores opened again, the tills rang there too. So it’s high time to look through the policies of your own household insurance now or after the new lockdown, so that everything is covered in the event of damage, advises expert Gabi Kreindl from the Association for Consumer Information (VKI). Because the renovation could have increased the value of the home and threatened with underinsurance.
