Have you checked your washing machine connections?
At SERVPRO of Decatur, we see this problem all the time. A homeowner calls the office with water damage due to a faulty washing machine connection. We recommend that you check your appliances regularly and fix anything immediately, do not say “I will get to it later,” because later can be too late. Remember, damages caused by lack of maintenance are not always covered by your insurance policy.
It is very common when there is water damage due to the washing machine, that a hose failure is to blame. Your machine has three hoses, two for hot and cold water, and the third to drain the water. If there is a faulty connection to the machine or wall, the chances of a problem increase dramatically. Make sure to tighten the hose. If your washing machine is not new, maybe now is a good time to replace those hoses. It is recommended that the hoses are replaced every five years or so.
Prevention is better than remediation, so take care of those small details now.
