Marietta, GA Residents Trust us when it comes to Water Damage

Many kitchen appliances expose homes in Marietta to water damage. Modern appliances like a dishwasher or ice makers use or make water. Unfortunately, water leaks can happen when the appliance fails or wears out. These problems often go unnoticed in the early stages. The following lists common types of appliances found in homes that can leak and harm and cause water damage:

  • Refrigerators and Freezers

Current models frequently feature ice makers and water dispensers, requiring supply lines. Self-defrosting functions drain fluids into a pan beneath these appliances. Clogged drain lines can cause leaks and pooling that hide under the refrigerator or freezer.

  • Dishwashers

Damaged or clogged waste lines can spread fluids inside your kitchen. Concerns about these breakdowns increase because the leaks involve contaminants from dirty dishes that can breed bacteria. Supply lines to dishwashers are under pressure and drip or spray water continuously if cracked or broken. Built-in dishwashers typically conceal both supply and waste lines in kitchen cabinetry. Backups into sink plumbing are possible, risking overflows.

  • Washing Machines 

Sometimes a home’s clothes washer and dryer are in or near the kitchen. Supply lines, both hot and cold, are pressurized, including lines plumbed into dryers with steam features. The pressure means a leak can occur even when the machines are not in active use. Broken pumps, hoses, and connections inside an operating washer can flood the utility area in or near your kitchen.

  • Water Heaters

Pipes delivering water to your kitchen can have cracks, causing water to soak or hide within walls. Again, some homes have the main or a dedicated heater in or near the kitchen. Seals and fittings loosen as the unit ages. Rust and excessive sediments in the tank can cause a rupture. Until the main line is shut off, a broken heater has water flowing through it. Hundreds of gallons can then invade and destroy structures inside your home.

We Can Handle Water Damage from Broken Appliances

AdvantaClean of Marietta provides well-equipped and qualified crews of technicians certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Starting with a visual inspection, we assess the extent of the water damage in your Marietta home. If needed, upon arrival, we shut off the main water supply or valves closer to the affected area. A technician using sensitive moisture detection and metering devices will map out the water from the broken appliance. We also identify building materials soaked with water. The team records data from these tests to guide the mitigation and remediation plan and help determine drying goals. After evaluation, we:

  • Use pumps and extraction equipment (truck-mounted and portable) to remove standing water

  • Remove kick plates at the base of cabinets to check for and improve access to suction up hidden pooling.

  • Examine drain pans and lines and arrange for their unclogging and emptying.

  • Recommend and help arrange for pipe, hose, pump, and fitting repairs and replacements as needed, both in household plumbing and appliances.

  • Employ negative pressure air systems to pull fluids from flooring, including subfloors, using adhesive drying mats. 

  • Pull-up laminate flooring rarely survives a soaking.

  • Design, implement, and monitor a structural drying plan, setting up and monitoring low-profile air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers.
