Many of our customers call us to help mitigate the water damage from a leak in the kitchen. Kitchen water damage is often slow and happens over a long period of time. This is because the water leak tends to be out of sight, hidden behind large appliances. The leading cause of non-weather-related water damage is appliance plumbing failure according to Chubb Insurance. Hoses for dishwashers and refrigerator ice makers are usually made from thin plastic and easily broken. Routine maintenance is important but made more difficult due to the location. Water can travel through walls and floors down to areas below, adding to the damage. These challenges of detecting kitchen water damage do not mean hope is lost. Add these suggestions to your regular maintenance routine to help keep your kitchen free from water damage.

Water Damage Caused by Ice Dams
The New England winter of 2021 saw an above-average snowfall. Combined with artic temperatures, this created the perfect atmosphere for ice dams to form. What is an ice dam? Ice dams are a buildup of ice on the edge of a building's roof, usually at the gutter or soffit. You'll notice icicles hanging off the eaves in many cases with a thick horizontal wall of ice. Ice dams form when the air in the attic is warmer than the soffits of the roof. The warm attic air melts the snow on the roof causing water to run down to the overhang. The air here is colder, causing the water to refreeze. Over time, this happens again and again until there is a thick buildup of ice trapping the water behind it. The real problem is when the edges of the roof are blocked by ice, there is nowhere for the melted water to go but back up into the house causing water damage to your home.
