We Can Help Save Your Arlington Home After A Water Damage Incident
Water Cleanup For Your Arlington Home
You don’t ever want to walk into your Arlington kitchen only to find gallons of water all over the floor from a failed dishwasher. Dealing with a flooded kitchen is never an easy task. Then add a broken dishwasher into the mix, and there are several different problems you need to address. Knowing what to do in a position like this can help you to recover faster.
After your dishwasher has unloaded gallons of water into your Arlington kitchen, there are some steps you can take to help yourself. Firstly, you should ensure that the water has not affected outlets or electrical appliances. If there are any doubts, then turn the power to your kitchen off, then get in touch with a professional remediation company, such as SERVPRO, right away for help with the water cleanup.
Knowing if your homeowner’s insurance covers water damage from your dishwasher is also essential. In most cases, you are covered, but check your policy to make sure that you are. You don’t want to be surprised. SERVPRO techs can also assist you in calling your insurance company to help you get the coverage that you need.
Most water damage does not dry in one day. Once we have removed any standing water and have set up the drying equipment such as dehumidifiers and air movers, we monitor them daily. The machines are moved if needed to ensure optimum drying time. If the affected area takes too long to dry, there is a more significant potential for additional damage from mold growth.
We also ensure that our equipment is working correctly and has not overloaded any circuits and popped your circuit breaker. These machines must keep running to provide the dry air and air movement, which is essential to dry your home.
Understanding how your dishwasher can fail, and performing some preventative maintenance can save your kitchen from a water damage disaster. Your insurance adjuster is also happier when you do this, should you ever have to file a claim. Look over your manufacturer’s manual for your dishwasher and inspect this essential appliance several times a year to ensure that all hoses are in good condition and everything else is in working order.
