26 Oct How to Keep Your Washing Machine From Leaking
How can I prevent my washing machine from leaking? Have you replaced the hot and cold water supply lines to your washer in the last five years? Have you had the drain line for your washing machine serviced? On more than one occasion, I Find and Dry leaks has responded to and cleaned up water damage caused by supply lines breaking or from drain lines backing up in the laundry rooms of our customers. Water supply lines for washing machines are capable of producing up to 12 gallons a minute when they burst. That is a lot of water pouring out of the broken supply lines causing water damage to flooring, cabinets, drywall, finished surfaces and personal property. In almost every case we find the supply lines for the washing machines are old and brittle and split or tear causing water to leak at a fast pace. If your washing machine drains are not functioning properly, they will cause water to leak intermittently on to the floor. This can cause water damage behind cabinets or in wall cavities. If Drain water is leaking and goes left unnoticed for a length of time it can turn into mold so it is important to act quickly and take care of the damage immediately. If you find yourself in this predicament please contact I Find and Dry leaks! Our certified water restoration technicians can assist you in minimizing damages caused by the leak and get you on the road to recovery.
