Preventing Water Damage In Your Home


Water can cause serious damage to your property. Not only do you have to worry about water outside getting it but ordinary household items can cause lots of damage too.

According to the Insurance Industry Institute, water damage accounts for billions of dollars in losses to homeowners and renters each year. It is also responsible for about 25 percent of all property insurance claims. Travelers reports that water is 10 times more likely to damage your home than a fire.

Here are a few tips for how to prevent water damage in your home or rental:

  • Know how to turn off the main water supply in an emergency.

  • Inspect your showers, tubs, sinks, dishwashers, washing machines, and fridges often to discover a leak before it results in large damage.

  • Check if caulking needs to be replaced around your showers, tubs, and sinks.

  • Check supply hoses for sinks, toilets, fridges and washing machine to see if they are cracked or worn.
