Drenched by Your Dishwasher?
One of the most common water damage emergencies that SERVPRO of Bay County responds to in homes throughout the community is “drenching by dishwasher.” Many people start their dishwasher cycle before heading to work, going to bed, or heading out for a day of shopping, and unfortunately, this can allow extreme amounts of water to flow where it shouldn’t before being discovered. So, what are some of the ways that your dishwasher can lead to disaster?
- Worn Gaskets – these gaskets can allow small amounts of water to escape at first, and as the wear and tear becomes more severe, a large amount of water can be expelled.
- Unlevel Dishwasher – an unlevel dishwasher can allow water to pool on one side or the other and leak out below.
- Broken Door – if the door does not seal properly, water can quickly seep out, or even worse, the door can be complete pushed open during the wash cycle.
- Supply and/or Line Damage – whether the lines come loose, have cracks or breaks, or begin to dry rot, a damaged supply line can lead to a large amount of water escaping into your property in a very short amount of time.
