Preventing Dishwasher Leaks in your Warrington Home
How Do You Prevent Dishwasher Leaks in Your Residential Property?
One of the greatest modern conveniences, a dishwasher reduces water usage, plus gets rid of the need for washing by hand, rinsing, and towel drying everything you used to make a single meal. Multiply this by three times per day, and it is simple to see how much energy and time a dishwasher can free up in your schedule.
However, thirty percent of water damage in the home is caused by appliance failure, and dishwashers are a significant contributor. By following some general tips, you can usually avoid water damage in your Warrington home. When an emergency does arise, SERVPRO, a professional remediation company, can help you dry your home out again.
Each dishwasher is different, so be sure you have read your owner’s manual and follow the instructions for operation. Recommendations for loading, plus kinds of soap and amounts can keep your dishwasher from breaking down later and leaking.
Perform maintenance on your dishwasher. Clean the rubber seals, flush out filters, protect against rust and unclog spray nozzles on a regular basis. Failure to do so can make the machine work less efficiently or break down.
If your dishwasher can use them, choose hoses which are stainless steel braided, as they fit easier without kinking in tight spaces, which many times causes other hoses to burst. You want to inspect the water lines as well routinely. A leak or burst in the line are the main ways water damage can be created by your dishwasher. Twice per year, inspect the lines and call one of our technicians if any signs of water are present.
Even with precautions, you may have little to no warning when your dishwasher hose bursts. That is why it is important never to run the appliance when you are not at home. If you are at home, you can at least shut it and the water source off as soon as possible to prevent the leak from becoming a larger problem. Then you can get in touch with us at SERVPRO right away.
