Washing Machine Flood Damage

Depending on its model and age, your washing machine could use anywhere from 15–40 gallons of water per cycle on average. Because of this volume, washing machines tend to be a common appliance to cause flood damage in the surrounding areas. Washing machine leaks can happen around the water hose connections or because of issues with the overflow tube. And since there is a large amount of water being pushed through, any of those leaks can quickly turn into a flood—causing significant amounts of water damage to your home or business.

Refrigerator Leaking Water

Refrigerators produce a lot of excess moisture. Especially when warm air hits the condenser coils, like when you open the fridge door. All of this excess moisture is routed through drain lines that handle the excess condensation or water. If those lines or seals malfunction or get clogged, however, water pools under the fridge and eventually leaks on the floor. Whether your refrigerator experienced a malfunction with the coils, improper seals, or the supply lines for the water or ice machine, water will pool at the bottom of the fridge. Water under the refrigerator can find its way under cabinets, the floor, and even creep up walls, leading to excess water damage to your home or business.

Dishwasher Flooding Issues

Depending on the efficiency of your appliance, a dishwasher can use up to 18.5 gallons of water per cycle on average. Because of the volume of water used in a dishwasher, it is more likely to cause flooding and water damage.

One of the main ways dishwashers flood is by overflowing. Common issues that cause overflowing and dishwasher flooding are:

Whatever the cause of the leak, dishwasher flooding can cause puddles of water and significant damage to your kitchen.
