When Your Mountain Home Dishwasher Floods the Kitchen Floor
Why SERVPRO Should Be Your First Choice for Water Cleanup in Your Mountain Home Residence
Dealing with a flooded kitchen in your Mountain Home residence from a malfunctioning dishwasher is never fun. Plus, now you also have a broken dishwasher. With multiple problems that you need to deal with that need immediate solutions, you need to recruit the help of a professional remediation company.
Water cleanup services for your Mountain Home residence are essential in a situation like this, and you need to move fast. That is why SERVPRO is the right choice for the job, as we are trained and experienced in water loss emergencies, and we move quickly to avoid further damages, such as mold growth.
When your dishwasher first breaks, turn off all the power to your kitchen to keep everyone safe. Also, check your insurance policy. Many times, homeowners’ insurance covers water damage from your dishwasher, but it is best not to be caught off guard by any details that are in your coverage.
SERVPRO techs need to get rid of any standing water from your home first. If it is more than a few inches deep, we have truck-mounted pumps that we can use to do this task quickly. Industrial fans and dehumidifiers then help us dry the affected area out again. Depending on how saturated the area is, it can take several days, but we monitor the equipment daily. When needed they are rotated to ensure we get the fastest drying time possible.
With a bit of preventative maintenance, you may be able to avoid the water damage emergency altogether. Periodically check the clamps, connections, and hoses to make sure they are in good shape and are secure. Keep an eye on the dishwasher tub for any corrosion or cracks. You should also replace rubber door gaskets when they first start to show signs of wear. Shims can help to readjust the dishwasher if it becomes unlevel over time, and keeping the kitchen drains free of clogs helps your dishwasher perform at its best.
