How Do I Get Water Out From Under My Dishwasher in Orlando?

8/27/2020 (Permalink)

“Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO technicians bring the expert skills and equipment to your Orlando home for any size water cleanup needed

A malfunctioning dishwasher in Orlando can dump several gallons of water on your kitchen floor in short order. That water will immediately follow the path of least resistance and run under cabinets, along walls and, in some cases, seep under the flooring. This can create more significant issues, such as:
    •    Loose tiles due to delamination
    •    Mold   
    •    Foul musty odors
    •    The ruination of building materials

Do the Kitchen Cabinets Require Removal to Cleanup Water Damage From a Dishwasher?

The type of extraction actions needed against water damage in an Orlando home depends on the kind of materials used to construct the cabinets and if there are easy access points such as toe kicks to remove for water removal. SERVPRO technicians can remove the toe kicks and other appliances in the vicinity to extract the water. If the cabinets need to get pulled away from the wall as part of the restoration services, every attempt gets made to ready them for re-installation and reuse in the home post-mitigation.

Different Types of Kitchen Flooring Have Varying Outcomes After Water Exposure

While ceramic tile with a good seal on the grout has the best outcome after a water spill, it does not mean all other types of flooring do not have restoration potential. Vinyl and laminate floorboards that do not show signs of damage such as swelling or bending can frequently get dried in place as can hardwood floorboards. One of the determining factors remains whether or not seepage occurred under the floor covering. SERVPRO techs always work with saving the homeowner the cost of replacement whenever possible.

Water damage needs fast action as soon as possible, and SERVPRO of South Orange County at (407) 226-2621 is ready 24/7 to come to your home and do the necessary restoration services to lessen the damage to your home and contents.
