Replace Aging Washing-Machine Hoses

Replace aging washing-machine hoses with heavy-duty ones from Floodchek with a 20-year warranty. Burst water lines are one of the most common causes of home water damage.

Cost: $43 for a pair of hoses at Safe Home Products.

Savings: $500 just for the insurance deductible on $5,308, the average cost of home flood remediation.

Bonus: With the washer pulled out, you can finally clean underneath it.
