Water Damage and Your Appliances. 

Any appliance with whose pipes or other fixtures feed into a water line has the potential to develop clogs or spring leaks that can lead to serious water damage if left unchecked. Below are the five most common sources of water damage we see most often.  

  1. Refrigerators.  The most common source of water damage we see is refrigerators. Most refrigerators are fitted with drain lines or ice makers. Drain lines in refrigerators can easily clog, which can cause water to puddle around the bottom of the fridge. Ice makers in refrigerators can cause water damage when the water supply line springs a leak.  
  2. Dishwashers. Faulty float switches or strainers clogged with food and debris can cause dishwashers to overflow and pour water into your home.  
  3. Washing Machines.  Clogged floor drains and loose hose connections are usually the main reasons why washing machines overflow. 
  4. Water Heaters. A faulty temperature and pressure relief valve, a leaky plumbing connection, or corrosion can cause your water heater to malfunction and flood your home. 
  5. Toilets. Overflowing toilets are usually caused by a clogged drain or a malfunctioning float that allows too much water to flow into the tank.
