Leak Detection Services in Watertown
Protecting Your Property from Water Damage
Water damage is one of the leading claims homeowners and insurance companies have to deal with. Not only can water cause thousands upon thousands of dollars in damage, but the average claim duration is over three months, so inconvenience is also a factor when having to deal with these situations. It is projected that 14,000 homes a day will experience some kind of a water loss.
The top causes of water damage at home include:
- Plumbing appliance (not identified) – 23%
- Pipe – 15%
- Toilet – 12%
- Air Conditioner (AC) – 12%
- Shower – 9%
- Water Heater – 7%
- Sink – 6%
- Ice Maker – 3%
