2020 Water Damage Statistics

According to ipropertymanagement.com, non-weather related water damage is the second highest category of insurance claims, and we wholeheartedly agree with them that water damage is everybody’s worst nightmare. If you’ve never had a water damage incident, consider yourself very lucky. What starts as a small leak can turn completely catastrophic if left unattended for even short periods of time.

The top causes of water damage in the home are appliance leaks or failure (dishwasher, washing machine, refrigerator, or sinks being left on), sewer backups or clogs, water overflow & buildup, and plumbing leaks or burst pipes.

Water damage results in over $13B of damage and removal costs each year in the U.S. over 14,000 water damage emergencies every day, and an average home insurance claim of $10,234!
