Regularly Check and Monitor Your Appliances!
SERVPRO responds to hundreds of water damages every year, and during these losses, we see many that have the same thing in common. A cause that is seen often enough to shed light on is appliance malfunctions.
Washing machines, ice makers, and refrigerators are common culprits of water damage. Some happening quickly, and others causing damage over time that is not seen immediately, which is often more dangerous.
With ice makers and refrigerators more often than not the supply line lets go or comes loose. It's a good idea to check your ice maker, make sure it's in working condition, and check the lines to make sure they are tight.
If you are replacing or moving your washer to a new location please check the connection where the water is hooked up, and (this one is important) make sure the drain hose is secure.
Check your appliances that have water running to them to prevent water damages. As much as we are happy to help you it's just as important to us for homeowners to practice helpful prevention.
