1. Not Knowing Where the Main Water Shutoff Valve Is

Water from a burst or broken plumbing pipe can spew dozens of gallons into your home’s interior in a matter of minutes, soaking everything in sight – including drywall, flooring, and valuables. In fact, water damage is one of the most common of all household insurance claims. Quick-twitch
