Performing Water Cleanup In Your New Orleans Home Following A Dishwasher Leak

A majority of homeowners operate dishwaters in a “set and forget it” mode. Some even place dishes in the appliance, then go to bed. You probably don't pay attention to the proper functioning of your dishwasher when in operation, but this should not be the case. A dishwasher can be the source of leakages and significant overflow, which can lead to water damage.

A dishwasher leak will necessitate water cleanup in your New Orleans home. Most leaks are not catastrophic. An example is a leak caused by a broken supply line to the dishwasher. Such a leak can cause water to soak into the base cabinet, back wall and under the toe plate. It may also soak in the concrete floor that is under the vinyl tiles. To clean up your residence, find some water removal tools like a wet-dry vacuum with a special wand, a desiccant dehumidifier, and air movers.

In the effort to clean up the affected area quickly, do not overlook critical details. It is vital to decontaminate everything in the area completely. Do not stop the drying process too soon. Check every place where the damage may have taken place. Moisture may hide in the subflooring, and only special equipment can detect it. Calling a restoration company like SERVPRO is the right decision. Our experts have the proper training, tools, and experience to complete the cleanup job in your New Orleans residence quickly, safely and efficiently.

The most important part of our restoration process is drying out the area thoroughly. SERVPRO technicians have moisture detection equipment like moisture sensors, moisture meters, and thermohygrometers. The information that moisture detection equipment provides enables us to determine the type of dehumidifiers and air movers to use to dry all the moisture from homes quickly. Our goal is to restore a property to the pre-water loss condition, making it appear “Like it never even happened.”

Dishwasher leaks can cause damage that may go unnoticed, especially those occurring beneath the unit.
