“Escape of water is one of the most common causes of home insurance claims. However, a few simple precautionary tasks can significantly reduce your risk of being affected. It pays to regularly check for leaks in piping beneath your kitchen and bathroom sinks.
“If you’re planning to go away for a few days it might be worthwhile getting neighbours or friends to check in on your home in case there’s a problem. Whilst they might not be able to prevent an issue they could make the damage considerably less serious. Finally, if you do notice something untoward, be sure to turn off the water supply immediately and contact a team of registered plumbers such as those supplied by We Fix Now.”
