    1. Fire.

    Nearly 50 percent of house fires are cooking related. Whether baking cookies with your kids or cooking a gourmet meal with your quarantine mate, it’s good to know if you leave the oven or toaster on and cause a house fire, apartment insurance will cover the damage.

    2. Water.

    So distracted that you let the tub or sink overflow? #!@$! Good thing you’re covered for damage done to your stuff by overflowing toilets, sinks, tubs and washing machines — either your own or from your neighbor upstairs.
