Water Damage in the Home

Jul 13, 2020

Water damage is responsible for almost 24% of all total homeowner’s insurance claims, and can cost homeowners thousands. It is important to know what your insurance covers, as well as what steps you can take to help prevent water damage from occurring.

Typical homeowner’s insurance policies cover accidental, unexpected damage, as opposed to gradual damage. This includes cases such as…

  • Burst Pipes
  • Accidental Leaks
  • Water damage from fires, roof leaks, or storms

Wondering how to protect yourself (and your home) from water damage? There are many steps you can take to help prevent yourself from having to deal with any water damage issues.

  • Keep up with routine maintenance
  • Drain your water heaters
  • Get water leak detectors and install them within your home
  • Inspect your home (hoses, roof, etc.)

Water damage may not always be unavoidable, however there are steps you can take to hopefully prevent them from occurring in your own home. Make sure to read more on the mold that water damage may cause, and for tips on how to prevent water damage, click here.
