WHY YOU SHOULD FIX A DISHWASHER LEAK

COMMON CAUSES A DISHWASHER IS LEAKING WATER

There are common dishwasher overflow problems that can cause water to leak including:

  • Air gap water leaks

  • Standing water in a dishwasher tub

  • Blocked sump area behind the dishwater

  • Blocked or disconnected dishwasher hoses

Dishwashers may not drain well especially if there is a lot of water covering its lower part. Often, water accumulation results in dishwater leaks and damages kitchens. A professional needs to carry out an appliance leak cleanup to mitigate flooding damage.

COMMON AREAS AFFECTED BY A DISHWASHER LEAK

A dishwater leak can cause severe damage to several areas of your home including:

  • Wood floors

  • Wooden cupboards

  • Carpeted rooms

  • Baseboards

DOES HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE COVER WATER DAMAGE FROM DISHWASHER?

Most homeowner’s insurance in Utah helps in covering damage due to accidental or sudden leaking plumbing. However, it doesn’t compensate for damages caused by poor maintenance. For instance, if you fail to repair a leaking kitchen sink that damages your flooring, you’ll have to incur repair expenses.

WHICH TYPE OF WATER DAMAGE DOES HOME INSURANCE COVER?

  • Damage from persistent maintenance issues: A typical homeowners’ policy covers the cost of replacing and repairing damaged flooring if the dishwater develops malfunctions suddenly. However, it doesn’t cover damage due to unresolved maintenance.

  • Repairing and replacing the water damage source: Most homeowners’ policies don’t include the cause of water damage. It may meet the cost to repair a damaged floor. However, it doesn’t cover the expenses you incur while fixing broken dishwater.

  • Flood: Ordinary homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flood damage and the source of water damage. Storms or surging water bodies such as lakes and ponds often cause flooding. It’s prudent to join the National Flood Insurance Program to buy flood insurance.
