In this post, we'll take a look at the inside of your home, specifically, your kitchen, and what to look for to prevent water damage!
Kitchen Appliances that Can Cause Water Damage
- Dishwasher - Periodically check for leaks under the sink where the hose connects to the water supply. Look around the base of the dishwasher for evidence of leaks, such as discolored, warped, or soft flooring materials, or water damage to nearby cabinets.
- Refrigerator - If your refrigerator has an icemaker, make sure the hose connection is securely attached to the water supply line. Also, a wet spot on the floor may be a sign of a crimped icemaker line about to burst.
- Sink - Replace deteriorated caulk around sinks, and check the pipes under the sink for leaks. A slow-draining pipe may indicate a partially blocked drain that needs cleaning.
Be sure to consider the basic steps outlined here.
Just by keeping an eye out for problems, you could save your possessions from damage, spare yourself costly repairs, and even keep your insurance premiums low.
