  • Preventing Water Damage In Your Kitchen

    Leaks, ice-removal, buckets on the kitchen ground...sounds like you might have a leak problem in your house. Here are some tips for preventing water damage in your kitchen, courtesy of State Farm Insurance. Remember if you have any water damage in your home, be sure to call Reilly Painting!

    The Kitchen

    A good place to start when you’re trying to prevent water damage? The kitchen: a place with a whole lot of water.

    Look carefully at your major appliances, and make sure they are up to snuff.

    • The Dishwasher: Periodically check for leaks under the sink where the hose connects to the water supply. Look around the base of the dishwasher for evidence of leaks, such as discolored, warped, or soft flooring materials, or water damage to nearby cabinets.
    • The Refrigerator: If your refrigerator has an icemaker, make sure the hose connection is securely attached to the water supply line. Also, a wet spot on the floor may be a sign of a crimped icemaker line about to burst.
    • The Sink: Replace deteriorated caulk around sinks, and check the pipes under the sink for leaks. A slow-draining pipe may indicate a partially blocked drain that needs cleaning.
