Water damage is the 2nd most common loss that is reported to insurance companies each year. In a report by Verisk Analytics’ ISO unit, it was found that each year between 2013 and 2017, one in 50 homeowners filed a water damage claim. Water damage inside your home or business is progressive. It requires a rapid response time and extreme thoroughness to prevent further damage to the structure. Not addressing the issue in a timely manner, or missing key areas where water may have traveled can very quickly lead to mold growth.

Washing Machine Leak
More than 50% of all washing machine water damage claims can be traced back to a supply hose failure often caused by a hairline break, a poor connection, or the age of the hose.
A water pipe burst is more common at night when temperatures are lowest, however, there is a risk any time the temperature falls below freezing.
Sump Pump Failure
After a sump pump failure, water begins to leak through the foundation and basement walls and pool in the lowest spots on the floor.
Microorganisms from floodwaters can contaminate indoor air and cause respiratory problems and allergies. These pollutants continue to damage building materials long after the floodwaters recede.
