Neglecting your plumbing may be more expensive than you think.

Insurance is a wonderful thing, especially when an unexpected emergency happens. Insurance is there to cover you financially when unexpected issues occur, and in most cases, it’s a lifesaver. However, there are certain circumstances when your insurance company won’t pay, and if you neglect to maintain your plumbing, you may not have the coverage you thought you did.

Be prepared to pay for plumbing issues if you’ve been neglecting regular maintenance and repairs. 

Although your insurance company can help you when you need them most, you are expected to hold up your end of the deal, which means that you’re responsible for all preventative maintenance and repairs. If you fail to maintain your plumbing system, you aren’t likely to get coverage for some plumbing issues, like gradual leaks or frozen pipes. Your insurance company may not cover a gradual leak because they expect you to be able to find leaks if you are properly maintaining your system. Additionally, most insurances companies will expect you to properly prepare your pipes for winter, so if you end up with frozen or burst pipes, you may find that you aren’t covered.

As you can see, preventative maintenance is important for many reasons, and if you neglect your plumbing, you may end up having to pay a lot more than you may expect. Stop neglecting your plumbing.
