How fast should you respond to a dishwasher leak?

12/18/2019 (Permalink)

Dishwasher leaks can be extremely destructive.

Dishwashers are hooked up to multiple plumbing connections including waste and drain pipes, and a pressurized supply line that provides hot water to wash dishes. If any of these connections becomes compromised, the damage can be significant. Most dishwasher leaks occur when the supply line becomes brittle and cracks, causing hot water to rapidly blast into the adjoining cabinetry.

Just a few minutes of water spraying like this can cause thousands of dollars in damage and could potentially create a significant mold hazard. Even after the water stops flowing, it is vital to have a trained professional like the technicians at SERVPRO of La Jolla examine the area and begin remediation work right away. In addition to being a good idea, homeowner's insurance companies typically will require their owners to start mitigating the damage as soon as it is discovered. Let the experts at SERVPRO of La Jolla help, call us 24/7.

My water heater leaked and the pan overflowed. Now what?

12/18/2019 (Permalink)

Call the experts at SERVPRO of La Jolla.

By code, most residential water heaters are required to be set into a "drip pan" designed to catch water that may leak. Sometimes these drip pans are not connected to a drain, and instead simply delay an inevitable water overflow. A water heater leak and overflow can cause damage to surrounding walls and flooring, and can rapidly create a hazardous mold situation. As water heaters generally leak hot water, the high temperature creates a perfect environment for microbial growth including potentially black mold.

By having the experts at SERVPRO of La Jolla address the situation right away, you can prevent extensive damage that will continue to spread. Our team has decades of experience dealing with water heater leaks in the least destructive method possible. By utilizing methods such as dry-in-place and selective demolition we can keep costs down and get your water back on asap.
