A slow leak?

A slow leak?

Whether is behind the washer, above the ceiling or under the sink, a little drip can lead to big trouble.

Water damage happens quickly and be expensive to fix.  Ignore a leak, and you could end up with a big mess on your hands.

According to the Insurance Information Institute, water damage and freezing accounted for over a third of property damage claims - making it the most popular type of property damage claim in recent years.

Freezing claims include damage caused by such things as ice dams, frozen gutters and frozen pipes.  Other common causes of water damage include ruptured appliance hoses, leaky ice maker water lines, leaky pipes, leaky roofs and improperly sealed windows.

Remember, it takes between 48 - 72 hours for mold to grow and mold needs moisture.  So putting off repairing a leaky pipe can results in not only water damage, but mold growth as well.

If you see it, address it immediately
