Water Cleanup Technicians In Rochester Tell The Public About Problems With Dishwashers

5/23/2019 (Permalink)

Save the kitchen for cooking only. No room for Fungi.

Don’t get Fungi in your kitchen for so many reasons, call SERVPRO today.

Most houses in Rochester these days come equipped with an automatic dishwasher to make cleaning up after dinner much easier. These appliances do make life more convenient, but they can malfunction and cause problems that force you to call in a professional water cleanup company such as SERVPRO. When dishwashers break, they can spray water into your kitchen. Sometimes the water lines coming into the dishwasher can develop a slow leak which can put moisture into your house without you realizing it. If water cleanup does not get completed shortly after moisture spills out into your kitchen, secondary damage like mold growth can occur.

If your dishwasher leaks, your cabinets, and kitchen floor can both get wet and its possible the damage can go unnoticed. If water cleanup in your Rochester home does not get completed within 48 hours of the incident, then fungi can start to develop. But if you notify our SERVPRO team of professional restoration technicians, then we can begin mitigating problems so that no secondary issues occur. We have at our disposal specialized instruments that can check your building materials and see if they got wet or not. We can use these sensors to determine how far the moisture damage has gone and how wet various items inside your home got.

When the source of the damage is your dishwasher, many of the issues can be hidden behind the appliances and cabinets. Whenever dealing with these types of problems, we always pull out your dishwasher and test the buildings materials around the vicinity. If we notice that the backs of your cabinets got wet, then we can take steps to removed moisture from the wooden substances quickly before mold can develop.

When kitchen cabinets get wet, we can set up air movers to push air underneath them and dehumidifiers to pull moisture out of the air. If necessary, we can pull your kitchen cabinets out and dry the materials behind them. If you ever happen to have your dishwasher break, call SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester at (603) 743-4301 24 hours a day.
