Mesa, AZ | Electronic Appliances That Cause Water Damage | Water Damage News

Do you know which electrical appliances can result in water damage? Some of them are discussed below.

Appliance malfunction is one of the most common causes of water damage on commercial and residential properties. The magnitude of water damage caused by these appliances is vast. Therefore, as a responsible property owner, your job is to keep a close eye on appliances that are connected to water sources or have water running through them. The slightest leakage can become a bigger problem, without you even knowing it.

Let’s break it down.

Hot Water Heaters 

It isn’t uncommon for water heater leakages to go unnoticed. The reason behind this ignorance is the location of these appliances. Hot water heaters are either placed in the basement, or in areas where human traffic is scarce. A malfunctioning valve for temperature and pressure in the hot water heater is what causes the damage. It also happens because of poor water connection, or deterioration of the water tank. To avoid such issues, it is advisable to get your heater inspected annually, by a professional.

Refrigerators 

Another appliance that can give you a tough time is your refrigerator, and especially the freezer. Your job is to make sure the freezer door opens and closes properly. Proper closing of the freezer door is vital to preventing condensation. The slightest buildup of condensation will eventually drain towards the bottom of your freezer. In the event the drain clogs or freezes, you should expect trouble. In case the freezer has a huge ice accumulation inside it, the ice needs to be thawed and the freezer cleaned from within. Another issue with the freezer is that of the ice freezing machine, the hose of which can become disconnected. To ensure proper connection of the hose, it must be inspected regularly.

Dishwashers 

A broken dishwasher can leak gallons of water in your kitchen and cause flooding. Have you ever wondered why that happens? It happens simply because people use too much detergent while doing the dishes. On the flip side, when the user isn’t at fault, a damaged float switch, poor fixtures, and clogged drains are to blame.

Washing Machines

Washing Machines 

Just like in dishwashers, using too much detergent in washing machines can also lead to water damage. However, other factors like doors, clamps, fixtures, and water hoses also result in washing machine water damage. The cracks in water hoses must not be ignored and must be dealt with on time. To ensure safety and durability, the plastic and rubber must be replaced with steel ones. While inspecting the water machine, don’t skimp on the checking the floor drains for clogging and debris.

 

The aforementioned appliances are supposed to provide you with comfort and ease. However, if left unchecked, they can prove problematic.
