Common Home Appliances That Cause Flooding-

A common cause of water damage is leaks, spills, or flooding from household appliances. To ensure that your appliances are in good working condition, we suggest that you get all of your appliances checked at a minimum of once a year. Below are the biggest culprits to watch out for. 

The Washing Machine- 

When a home washing machine happens to have a small leak, it can appear to be a small issue. Although a small leak seems to be a minor, it should not be ignored. We have experienced small pinhole leaks in a water supply line that have broken out into an all-out basement flood. For best safety practices to prevent water damage, it is best to check the connecting hoses leading to your washing machine a couple of times per year.

The Refrigerator-

We all appreciate the convenience of an ice maker in our kitchens. But did you know it can also be the culprit of household floods? Our SERVPRO crews have had to clean water damages caused by the water line that supplies an ice maker. When the water lines get damaged, they can leak or, worse yet, become completely unattached. We know it might be a hassle to get behind your home's refrigerator, but it is essential to waterline periodically for crimps and make sure the valve connection is secure. We recommend our customers leave a four-inch gap between the refrigerator and the wall for safety from water damage. This will allow easy access to pull out the fridge and prevent future crimping in your water line.

The Dishwasher-

This household appliance has a water supply line just like refrigerators and washing machines. If a dishwasher water supply line was to burst, you could guarantee that your kitchen will be filled with water after a wash and rinse cycle. In some of our more severe water damages caused by dishwashers, we have seen a dishwasher back up. Backup typically occurs when debris has clogged the drain, and the water has nowhere to go but inside your home. 

Keep Yourself Safe From Floods-

At SERVPRO of Peekskill, Ossining we highly recommend annual, routine inspection of the hoses and all of the connections for your appliances that use water. Doing so can save homeowners significant repair costs instead of handling a water loss claim.

If your home falls victim to a water emergency, time is of the essence. Contact SERVPRO of Peekskill, Ossining for immediate water restoration assistance.

Commercial carpet cleaning is one of the features of keeping an office clean that has gotten more attention recently, and definitely for good reason.

So why should you clean your carpets?

Failing to regularly get your carpets cleaned in a commercial building can negatively impact your company in a number of ways. people will look poorly upon dirty carpets, giving off a bad first impression.

Water Damage From the Fridge...

3/4/2022 (Permalink)

What happened?

A common cause for these leaks is the plastic water line behind the refrigerator will crack, a slow drip starts and water pools behind the fridge unnoticed. Another common cause is excess condensation buildup which has the same effect. Water damage from your fridge can create numerous problems in your home especially since the problem can go unnoticed for so long, at this point the damage has already taken a toll on your floors and surrounding areas. Moisture and heat in the dark environment create perfect conditions for mold to form and your floorboards to rot. Somewhere like an apartment or enclosed area these mold spores can cause issues and a problem like this should not be overlooked. At SERVPRO we are experts in mold remediation and will gladly remove and prevent further frustrations from happening.

So What is Next?

It is important to clean up any visible water to avoid further damage and possibilities of mold forming. Once this is done you should inspect your fridge and see if there are any noticeable leaks or areas where condensation may be forming to excess. It is important to replace any faulty connections to stop the immediate leak if possible. If you are able to, assess the damage done to the area under and around the fridge. Most of the time floorboards will show visible damage, but the real problems can occur underneath where you cannot see. We recommend you give us a call at SERVPRO of Peekskill, Ossining where we are available 24/7 to help you. We will send a team out to prevent any further damage. With many years of experience we will make the cleanup a quick and easy experience for everyone involved.

A Pro tip From Us: Purchase a water alarm and attach it behind/under your fridge to notify you of any further problems from getting bad.

Preventing Home Fires

2/27/2022 (Permalink)

Fires are frightening for everyone, living with others means you need to have a plan in place before any type of disaster can occur. This includes preventative measures as well as what to do in the actual event of a fire. Below we have included some of the ways you can stay safe from fires in your home.

Test fire alarms and change fire alarm batteries frequently- press the test button on your fire alarms monthly to ensure they are working properly. If they are not, do not wait to replace them.

Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen- it is a fact that most fires begin in the kitchen, make sure to keep an up to date fire extinguisher rated for grease and kitchen fires near by. 

Blow out candles- never leave a lit candle unattended, always blow them out before leaving even for a few minutes. 

Keep it clean- make sure you avoid clutter in the way of exits as well as near any heat sources as this can feed a potential fire. Throw away trash, and remove flammable materials from inside if possible. 

Do not overload outlets- make sure you do not have too many things plugged into your outlets. Electrical fires can happen while you are not home and cause serious fires.

Plan how to get out- make an escape plan for you and anyone else living in your home, plan ahead to get you and your family out. Knowing what to do before can help dramatically. 

Be aware- finally, if you see or smell smoke coming from your home call 911 right away. 

What next-

SERVPRO of Peekskill, Ossining is there for you after a fire. From the cleanup to full restorations we will do our best to make sure your home and salvageable items are looking better than before.
