4,160 water damages are reported in France every day, or one every 30 seconds.

One case every 30 seconds! With more than a million cases recorded each year, water damage is the most common disaster in homes, analyzes the Home Safety Observatory. Thus, 4,160 water damages are reported in France every day, according to France Assureurs.

Although its origin can be multiple, not all regions are equal when it comes to this phenomenon. With 6% of losses recorded, the Occitanie region takes third place on the podium of the most affected territories. It is preceded by Aquitaine with 11% of cases and Hauts-de-France and Corsica (18% each), figures from the Sartec group, an expertise firm in prevention and risk management.

“An aging real estate stock”

“Each year, we record an increase in claims linked to water damage. A situation which can be explained by an aging real estate stock in France which involves numerous ruptures in pipes and global warming which leads to repeated thunderstorms and storms like the Hauts-de-France have been able to meet him in recent months,” explains Christophe Dandois, co-founder of Leocare, multi-service digital insurance.

As a reminder, outside the home, the primary cause of water damage is roof infiltration and overflowing gutters and gutters as well as protruding balconies. As for the interior of the home, it is the water installation which is most often the cause of accidents.
