What’s Your Eddy IQ? Water Damage

True or FalseWater damage is the biggest risk facing homeowners today.
This week’s topic for discussion is water damage. Most homeowners are likely unaware that nearly 50% of all residential claims in Canada are due to water damage (Source). Research shows that people are 12 times more likely to have a water damage claim than a fire, and 3 times more likely to have a water issue than a theft.
Therefore, the answer to this week’s question is True. Each year Canadians incur more than one billion in insurance water damage claims.
Whether it’s water originating from internal sources like pipes, appliances and toilets or water as a result of external events like a hurricane or overloaded city sewers, the results can be catastrophic.
A lot of related information is provided in this great article by ‘The Globe and Mail’, providing great insights on water damages and their backups.
And, water damage can be greatly mitigated by Eddy’s technology. Visit for more details.
