Why SERVPRO Is The Right Choice For Water Damage Cleanup In Your Jacksonville Home

A familiar source for water damage in homes in Jacksonville is the dishwasher you use each day. There are several necessary steps you can be taking to help prevent damage sustained from these appliances and avoid a sudden flood in your kitchen.

If your dishwasher has already malfunctioned and created water damage in your Jacksonville home, you want the assistance of a professional remediation company so the mess can get cleaned up quickly and accurately. SERVPRO can come to your aid with the knowledge and tools to restore your home before additional damage can be done, making it easy to see why SERVPRO should be called when you have a water damage emergency.
 
To avoid a water disaster involving your dishwasher, you need to replace your appliance every three to five years. It may seem like a short time and a significant amount of money to spend. However, hairline fractures can form in the shell of the dishwasher over time from routine use. Soap residue and hard water can also build up and cause these fractures, which get bigger and bigger, resulting in thousands of dollars of water damage. SERVPRO technicians have truck-mounted pumps which we can pump out the gallons of water from your kitchen so we can proceed to dry it back out.

In the same way, you need to make a habit of ensuring the drain line is correctly hooked up to the ink. It should be connected tightly to the plumbing under the sink and shouldn’t be loose. If it is loose, natural water pressure continues to water at the connection and can dump a whole dishwasher’s worth of water out into your kitchen.

A good practice is also to make sure only to use this appliance when you are at home so you can guarantee you catch any leaks as soon as they happen. Turning on the dishwasher and leaving home can leave a leak to develop and water damage to occur just twenty to thirty minutes later. With no one there, the water continues to pour into your kitchen.
