Water damage from a leaking refrigerator? Find out why.
A sneaky cause of water damage in the home is a leaking refrigerator. These leaks are often small and slowly leave behind water damage that can go unnoticed for a long time. This is why it's usually the smallest leaks that cause the most damage! If not caught and restored properly, a water leak can cause mold to grow within 48 hours. The level of mold growth after a few week's time means the building materials behind and underneath the fridge and potentially the surrounding kitchen cabinets will need to be removed and remediated. The good news is, a refrigerator leak is largely preventable with regular inspection and routine maintenance. Follow these expert tips to help prevent water damage from fridge leaks.
