Appliance Leaks

How often do you check your supply line to your appliances?  It is a good idea to check them on a regular basis to ensure there are no leaks, worn spots, or that a pest has chewed them.  The attached picture from SERVPRO of Shippensburg/Perry County shows a dishwasher that had a slow leak that was not caught until the homeowner was sitting in her basement family room watching tv when water started to drip from the ceiling.  It didn't take long to figure out that the dishwasher had a very slow leak.  This leak got under the vinyl flooring in the kitchen which also soaked into the bottom of her cabinets and eventually down through the floor and insulation in the basement causing the drip that caught her eye.  When we arrived on site, the homeowner's sons had already tore out the vinyl and set up a few small fans to help start the drying process, saving us time to where we could just set up equipment and get the drying process underway with our professional grade equipment.
