Water damage is never fun, but it can be especially difficult in your kitchen. There are several things to consider when your kitchen floods.
1. Water Source
2. Water Contamination
3. Wet Floors
4. Wet Cabinets
Where did the water come from, and where did it migrate to? Was it from a dishwasher flood? Did your refrigerator flood? Was it from a frozen or broken pipe in the wall? These different sources of water damage can influence the water restoration process.
Dishwasher flooding can have contamination such as chemicals and raw food. While a fridge flooding from the ice maker supply line could have little to no contamination.
The amount of water damage from a broken pipe from freezing or any other cause is often significant. A broken pipe under pressure will put out 5 gallons of water per minute!
