Water. We all need it. We all use it. We all love it. Unless we have a leak or a flood and our home experiences damage from water, then we curse it! When there is a leak or a flood, damage from water can affect not just your personal property, but the structure of your home as well. And even though we all imagine a flooded basement when we first think of water damage, there are some other strange places you will find damage from water.
Under the Fridge
Most refrigerators have water hook-ups for ice and water dispensers. If those begin to leak, it can take a long time before it’s noticed. It can go unchecked and create damage from the water to the flooring, under the flooring, into the ceiling of the room below, and even into the studs and drywall behind the refrigerator. If left untreated long enough, the damage from the water from the fridge can even cause the floor under the fridge to buckle.
If your house is built on a slab, it can develop a slab leak. If you have a crack in the slab where water from the ground can seep up through the slab can cause damage from the water to flooring and carpets as well as furniture. Another more common source of a slab leak is a water pipe in or under the slab that is broken or leaking.
