Did you know that your kitchen appliances can cause water damage in your home?
Water is commonly used in the kitchen to cook and clean dishes. Although water in small amounts may not be immediately apparent, the damage that may result from prolonged exposure to water and moisture can end up being a huge disaster.
Here are some common sources of appliance-related water damage:
Refrigerators can experience cracked water lines leading to your ice maker and water dispensers, causing a leak. This can result in puddling, or even flooding in some cases.
Check your fridge from time to time. Cleaning behind it can be a good way to spot water damage before it worsens.
In addition, cleaning and drying the area underneath your water and ice dispenser is another way to prevent water damage from accumulating in your kitchen.
Garbage disposals are helpful tools to have in your kitchen when it comes to washing dishes. However, if it is leaking underneath your sink, water damage and mold growth can occur.
Checking your garbage disposal periodically can help prevent water damage beneath your sink.
Dishwashers are also a common source of water damage in kitchens. Dishwashers can leak if not in working condition, which can result in the accumulation of water on the floor either underneath or in front of your dishwasher. This can be due to several reasons, including a broken hose or any loose connections.
If you see water leaking from your dishwasher, it is important to have it fixed so that the damage does not worsen. Common damages from a dishwasher include warped or soft floors near the area.
To prevent mold growth and possible water damage, it is important to keep the surfaces dry after utilizing different appliances. In addition, the sink faucet can leak if not properly installed, or if parts become defective over time.
In short, there are many sources of water in the kitchen that can lead to water damage and mold growth if not spotted and corrected. Water damage, no matter the size, is an issue that needs to be attended to as soon as possible to prevent additional damage from occurring.
