“When temperatures dip, our water pipes freeze, and then thaw causing the pipe to split and this cause’s untold damage to our homes” comments Hayley Connolly of Home Shield Insurance Services. “The best way to handle this is to prevent it! We should all be insulating our water tanks and pipes. If you do happen to notice a frozen pipe however, please take advice from a plumbing professional who will talk you through isolating the water supply and thawing the pipe. Anyone going away for the weekend should certainly ask a neighbour or relative to check on the property as an extra precaution”.
“Clients of Home Shield Insurance can be assured that any claims we are made aware of, will have our upmost attention, and we endeavour to assist and support our clients claims swiftly and smoothly through the claims procedures set down by the Insurance Providers”.
Anyone who has a comprehensive Home Insurance or Landlords Insurance policy is covered for Escape Of Water providing the insurance provider did not exclude this peril at the time the Insurance policy was arranged based on risk assessment of the individual property or policy holder.
Hayley Connolly is very proud to confirm that all ‘Live’ Home and Landlords Insurance policies, arranged by Home Shield include Escape Of Water as standard.
