Water Damage How To Handle Water Damage In Your Kitchen It Doesn't Look Like 22 Gallons of Water on the Kitchen Floor, Yet!

SERVPRO's Water Damage Service for Your Mulberry Kitchen

Although any area of your property in Mulberry can fall prey to water damage, your kitchen is particularly susceptible. The fact that this room of the house is typically home to appliances like washers, refrigerators, dishwashers, the sink, garbage disposals, and all of the water lines that supply them. Unfortunately, water damage is an unpredictable occurrence. Since water damage can pop up at any moment, it's important that you be prepared to grapple effectively with it. By gaining basic knowledge about where water damage is most likely to occur, inspecting for pooling water, and knowing who to call for assistance, you can mitigate the effects of water damage.

Preventing Water Damage Caused By Appliances

In this contemporary era, many kitchens contain dishwashers and under sink garbage disposals. Although these appliances were developed to make your life simpler and more sanitary, they can also engender frustration because of high incidences of leaks leading to water damage. Even the SERVPRO web page on Water Damage illustrates an overflowing dishwasher. As the dishwasher begins to age, its hoses start to crack and weaken. Once this happens, under sink leakage can lead to water damage. The same is the case for refrigerators that employ a small water supply line for built-in water dispensers or ice makers. To prevent appliance-related water damage, be sure that you inspect your drainage and water lines regularly. Also, be sure to replace them every couple of years or when they start to crack.

The water damage restoration experts from SERVPRO know, your sink base is highly susceptible to water damage. In many cases, the base gets filled with kitchen essentials and cleaning supplies. As such, it is quite easy for a tiny leak to go undetected for a relatively long period of time. If undetected, tiny leaks can evolve into a serious problem. For this reason, it's important for you to inspect the water lines, fittings, and drain lines periodically so that you can detect leakage signs before it's too late. Once a small leak gets going, it can release 22 gallons of water in just one day.
