Cape Carteret NC Water Damage

7/18/2014 (Permalink)

Notice where SERVPRO has removed the carpet pad before setting the air mover in this corner.

     Washing machine supply hoses are under constant pressure.  If they develop a leak, water continues to spray until someone becomes aware of it and turns off the cutoff valve.  That is why SERVPRO recommends you inspect and/or replace your washer supply lines on a regular basis.  Our customer in Cape Carteret wishes they had done just that, their washer hose erupted and flooded half of the house while they were out running errands.  SERVPRO was able to get the situation under control and start the drying process but at that point the damage was already done.  A good stainless steel set of washer hoses runs less than $75.00.  Compared to your homeowners insurance deductible, that's a great bargain.  Our Cape Carteret customer had to pay $1500.00 out of pocket, unfortunately the timing was terrible as they were beseiged by medical bills already.  Pay ahead, replace your washing machine hoses today!
