Washing Machine Malfunctions Can Damage Orem Home

3/17/2022 (Permalink)

Baby trying to clean up water mess. Remember to keep up on the maintenance.

Your washing machine plays a critical role in living comfortably in your Orem residence. While these appliances can get used almost daily through the hustle and bustle of life, this also attributes to why so many of them do not get the maintenance that they need to operate at their optimal levels. As these appliances age, components wear and can break off or disconnect. Even something as simple as the barrel becoming slightly damaged can lead to substantial water loss.

While you might not attribute a washing machine to causing water damage to your Orem home, you might become surprised to learn just how readily damage from this appliance occurs. Failure of this machine can lead to water flowing endlessly onto the ground, or at the very least, the full water contents of a single load. Within moments, water on the floor of your laundry area begins to soak into flooring and wall materials, and without the proper cleaning and drying, can lead to degradation or mold growth.

Our SERVPRO professionals might not be able to repair what has gone wrong with your washing machine, but we do have the expertise and the equipment to handle the water damage that resulted. With effective extraction and drying solutions, our professionals can get to work quickly on the damaged area to prevent it from spreading farther and affecting new areas of your property.

We have advanced technology like portable thermal imagery cameras attached to electronic tablets that can show our SERVPRO team where moisture pockets exist in exposed materials and beyond. This information can serve to let our professionals set up our high-powered drying equipment in ideal locations for maximum results over the shortest period.

While this might only show you a small portion of the overall restoration process that occurs after an appliance malfunction in your home, you should know that you can count on our SERVPRO of Utah County team to do the job right. If you want to make water damage “Like it never even happened.” give us a call today at (801) 785-5228.
