Fires are one of the most expensive catastrophes that a homeowner can face. And water damage caused by leaks or plumbing issues is among the most common reason insurance claims are filed.

A recent post on CNN Money shares some the most common problems in the home that could lead to disaster, along with home repairs that can keep trouble at bay.
