Restoring Your Kitchen Back to Normal

Mar 16, 2008
The kitchen is one of the most used areas in our houses. They might be the most hectic place of family interaction at all times of a day. For special holidays, kitchens are essential when it comes to showing a good time to our guest. Many living spaces this day and age have open floor plans. There are huge quantities of money being put on fancy floors, counter tops, and the most up to date appliances.

Kitchens are also one of the rooms in your home that are the most susceptible to water damage. Besides the plumbing installed for the sinks in the kitchen, there could be a water line going to the refrigerator that has a water dispenser and ice maker, the dishwasher, and many times a washing machine or hot water heater will be placed nearby. A major flood in a kitchen may put it out of order for days or even weeks.

If an inbound water line in your kitchen comes loose or bursts, it could be awful, especially if you are out when it takes place. If you have been away for a few hours or even worse for many days, the whole dwelling can be flooded. If you find out the kitchen or some space of your residence has become flooded with any major amount of water, the thing you should do first is cut off the electricity with the breakers. After that, shut the water off as fast as possible. Often times getting it off using an inside valve might be possible. There is a wrench that you can purchase to get it off at the main source outside your residence. This wrench lets you to turn the main water line to the whole home off.

If it is not possible to turn the water off, call your water company's emergency telephone number. After the water is off, disconnect all electrical appliances that are around the water. Unplug the dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, trash compactor, any thing electrical, even though it has not gotten wet. If the quantity of water is not really a big amount you can use a wet/dry vacuum to suck it up, but this may take a while and time is of the essence when water has flooded your living space. The faster it is cleaned up, the less potential there may be for mold hazards.

If the water is a large amount, telephone a qualified water damage business. They can get the job done more adequately and the amount it cost will likely be taken care of by your home owner's insurance plan. Never use your appliances that that might be water damaged until you have them inspected by a skilled repairman.
