Your Convenient Ice? It Could Be A Water Disaster!
Any of your appliances connected to a water line could potentially cause water damage. One of the most frequent problems that we see is water damage from a leaky refrigerator. Unlike other types of water damage, this can happen over a long period of time without the homeowner noticing it, since the damage is hidden under and behind the refrigerator.
If you have the ice maker connected to the water line, make sure the line fittings are secured. Check water valves and defrost drains for leaks or cracks. If the fridge has a clogged defrost drain, the water may leak into the lower compartment of your fridge and could then run onto the floor. Condensation may be another reason why water is collecting around the fridge, since it can run down the walls and into the floor. The best way to avoid dealing with water damage cause by your fridge is to regularly check and maintain the appliance.
