It’s the everyday house appliance that is usually relied on such as a refrigerator, dishwasher, or washing machine.  These appliances are used often and made to last for years that we may forget that these machines could sustain a leak or even break down. Take a moment to have a routine check-up every now and then to help reduce water damage incidents from occurring.

It's important to be cautious about its placement.  Moving the refrigerator too close to the wall may kink or break the water supply line. Keep in mind, that the plastic water supply line degrades over time and can crack or break.   To prevent water damage from happening, consider removing the plastic line and replacing it with a copper or stainless-steel line that has better durability. 


Be aware of how much detergent is put into the dishwasher.  By adding too much detergent, it can cause water to overflow resulting in a dishwasher flood.

Washing Machine:

An overloaded machine is a common reason to have a leaking washing machine because the machine has been overfilled.   Have a limit to prevent a water overflow
