Most of us spend a lot of time in the kitchen, leading to many spills and splashes, especially around the sink, stove, fridge, and even coffee pots. Many kitchens can become very hot and humid while you cook, resulting in moisture accumulating on the walls and roof.
All of these sources of water can have a dramatic impact on your home. Water damage causes many household problems and can even affect the structure of your West Palm Beach home. Many homes are also prone to mould growth, which can be smelly, unpleasant, and even harmful to your health.
Sources of Leaks
Many different issues can cause kitchen water damage. Some involve the slow accumulation of water over several years, while others are the dramatic bursting of pipes, resulting in a flooded kitchen.
Some of the most common sources of water problems in the kitchen include:
- Leaks around the sink: Sinks are always covered with water – whether you’re cleaning a couple of dishes, washing your hands, or even simply getting a drink of water, there are many sources that can cause water damage. Compromised drain pipes, leaky garbage disposal, incorrect sealing, leaky faucets or sprayers, and even old water supply lines can cause untold water damage.
- Appliances: Dishwashers and washing machines are notorious for leaking, either through the door or underneath the appliance itself. These leaks are often undetected, leading to many issues. Also, make sure to check under your freezer or fridge after a defrosting session, as water can easily pool and cause damage.
