Nothing is more upsetting than coming home to see your house flooded. Lifelong possessions ruined. Electronic equipment damaged. Just a few inches of water can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage. Yes, sometimes we can’t avoid life’s unexpected twists and turns. Flooding dangers lurk in every home, yet American Restoration Water and Fire can help you lessen the chances of home flooding.

American Restoration advises you to examine critical appliances before they cause a flood. Dishwashers are among the top appliances that can cause home flooding. Sometimes, the leak occurs where you can see it. Other times the leak is hidden, causing unseen damage. It’s very important to constantly check your dishwasher for leaks. Your hot water heater is another appliance with water danger lurking in the pipes behind. If you see water pooling, check the temperature-pressure relief valve near the top of the can. Also, check the drain valve near the bottom of the tank. Tighten the valve and see if the leak stops. If not, turn off the main water line. Remember to also pay close attention to ice makers and washing machines and check them often.
