Water enters our home through pipes and flows into the bathrooms, laundry room, kitchen, hot water heater, and even to the irrigation system. Though many feel it is a low risk, according to the Insurance Information Institute, water damage is the second highest cause of homeowner insurance losses. In fact, the losses are more costly than theft and vandalism, with each claim costing just under $8,000 on average.

Every year over 2.5 million homeowners have some type of water damage.

Even more concerning is that when it comes to hiring someone to inspect appliances, a quarter of all homeowners have never had their appliances inspected and 21% have not done so in more than three years. When these appliances and their related plumbing and hoses fail, claims range from 50% to 80% higher than a typical water damage loss," according to Chubb Homeowners' Water Risk Survey, Homeowners' attitude toward home protection, and what they're overlooking.
