Washing Machine Overflow

All it takes is a tiny leak in the washing machine water supply line to turn your peaceful home into a flood zone. As awful as it sounds, water damage is actually a very common household problem, especially where washing machines are concerned. The most common causes are washing machine overflow and connection failures. The range of damage can be anything from flooding, water damage, or mold. Depending on how extensive the damage is, it could extend from your house to surrounding areas and properties.

Even though it’s a common problem, it doesn’t mean there are no preventative measures. You can take small precautions now to help prevent your washing machine from becoming the cause of an indoor flood.

  1. When turning on a water supply line, ensure that the appropriate appliances are in place and that the connections are turned off.
  2. When moving out or just planning on being absent from your home for an extended period, you can simply turn your water off.
