It just takes a small water leak, under a concrete slab, under a sink, behind a wall, even under the oak tree in the front yard, to create big trouble.
Water leaks often happen without anyone noticing, quickly, and they are typically an expensive repair. Ignoring it just makes it worse and you will be lucky if your insurance company helps bail you out.
Most home insurance policies don’t cover damage relate to neglected maintenance or normal wear and tear.
According to the Insurance Information Institute, the repairs for average water damage claim cost $11,000. This includes mold remediation and clean-up. Given the environmental conditions in Central Florida and Atlanta, mold is able to thrive very quickly.
Today's homes are built more efficiently for conserving energy, but it makes it even harder to find a hidden water leak. Modern homes also have more bathrooms and laundry machines on the upper floor or next to the master bedroom. This all adds up to more plumbing pipes.
As a home or business owners, it is important to keep up with routine maintenance. Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
There are many reasons why pipes leak, many of them have to do with the age of the pipes, nothing lasts forever!
