Water Damage Don't Panic When Your Washing Machine Fails And Causes Damage To Your Daytona Beach Home While the washing machine serves an important role within your house, it can also prove to be the source of considerable water damage.

Washing Machine Failures That Damage Daytona Beach Homes

As helpful as washing machines have become for Daytona Beach homeowners, these like all water-fed appliances, have the potential to cause significant damages to a house without the proper upkeep and use. A common potential problem for washing machines is its installation on uneven or slick surfaces. With unbalanced loads, washing machines can rock, sometimes violently, pulling at the hose connections against the wall. If the hose pulls free from the fixture, or from the machine itself, there is no check valve in place to stop the unabated flow of water onto the laundry room floor before you manually turn it off on your own.

With the disconnection of a supply line to the washing machine, water can flow and pool quickly, causing an immediate need for professional water removal services in your Daytona Beach home. Our SERVPRO professionals can understand the severity of a situation like this, as water damage can spread quickly from the initial point of exposure throughout a home, so we can respond quickly to the emergency with the equipment to help.

Extraction is a key component to restoring a damaged home in these conditions, and our rapid response team arrives with several machines and tools designed to remove excess water quickly from this exposed area. We have portable sump pumps, gas-powered pumps, extraction wands, and weighted extractors to remove as much of the water from the laundry area and adjacent affected rooms quickly.

Drying is vital to follow the extraction as exposed materials like linoleum tiles could get preserved with the right response to the emergency. Our objective is to protect exposed materials when possible and reduce the need for tear out and reconstruction. Air movers, dehumidifiers, drying mats, and our injectidry system can all play vital roles in eliminating moisture pockets in flooring and wall cavities.

While the washing machine serves an important role within your house, it can also prove to be the source of considerable water damage without careful upkeep and monitoring. If you get faced with a water loss incident, give our SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange rapid response team a call at (386) 788-0358.
