Water is a necessity in life; however, water in the wrong areas can be damaging. When a home takes in water, serious damage and destruction can occur. For this reason, homeowners should learn preventative water damage tips, such as:

 

  • Familiarizing yourself and other family members with the water shutoff valve. Because water damage claims account for a large percentage of residential insurance claims each year, it is important that everyone in the home knows where the shutoff valve is located and how to operate it. This may help to avoid a water damage claim or at least minimize the extent of water damage to the home. 
  • Inspecting the plumbing. Water damage claims are the number one cause of homeowners insurance claims. In fact, broken or leaky pipes are one of the main causes of water damage. Because of this, it is important that you inspect the plumbing as often as possible to include areas inside the toilet tank, behind the refrigerator, under the sink, and even the water heater. If in doubt or if you catch a leak, have a plumber inspect it.

 

If your home suffered water damage in a storm or from hail that caused roof damage, call a knowledgeable Texas insurance claim attorney to get help pursuing your insurance claim. You can reach the Voss Law Firm today at 888-614-7730 and get answers to your questions in a free, no-obligation consultation. 

 

We may be able to also help you appeal your insurer’s decision if they denied your claim or provided you with too low of an offer. Plus, you can get more information about the claims process in our book. Request a complimentary copy of our book Disputes With Your Insurance Company – What All Consumers Need to Know.

I think this is something that not a lot of people think about, until it is too late and they have a water damage. I really liked the tip about having everyone know where the water shut-off is.
