Whether from heavy rains or frozen pipes, water damage can be devastating. That’s why, should you need to report a claim, we are here to help, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, through our free emergency helpline on 0818 208 408.

Help is at hand

The damage and trauma experienced from water damage cannot be underestimated. A burst pipe, a leak from a kitchen appliance or sanitary wear item can all contribute to causing water damage in your home. So it’s important that your home insurance protects you against the resultant loss and damage. That’s why we offer comprehensive home insurance cover and a painless claims service to make life a little bit easier at a difficult time.

Making a claim

At Zurich we are committed to providing a claims service that is fair, professional, courteous and efficient. We understand making a claim can be stressful and so we treat all our customers with sensitivity and respect. We pride ourselves on treating each claim with the importance and urgency it requires, and we strive to understand what it is our customer needs, and will do our utmost to deliver on that.

Preventing water leaks

There are some weather hazards that you can’t avoid, but you can put measures in place to help reduce the risk of a water leak or damage. You should schedule regular maintenance of all parts of your home’s water system, such as the boiler, radiators, pipes and taps. In preparation for freezing temperatures, install all boilers with a thermostatic sensor that will fire up automatically when the temperature drops, and ensure pipes are lagged, particularly in the loft or roof-space areas or in outbuildings or where pipes are external.
