Flood In Kitchen

Causes of Flood in Kitchen

Kitchen floods are less common than bathroom floods, but they can still happen. These floods usually originate from your sink or dishwasher but can also happen due to a burst pipe. Take a closer look at which appliances are most likely to cause kitchen floods, and what you can do about it. 


Fridge Leak

A refrigerator leaking water inside can result from a damaged drain pan or issues with the water supply. Regular maintenance and inspection can help identify these issues before they lead to a flood.

Clogged Kitchen Sink 

A clogged kitchen sink can quickly turn into a flood if not addressed. Food particles, grease, and other debris can collect in the drain over time, leading to clogs which can put pressure on your drain line. In fact, the pipe can burst if the clog is dense enough. 

Be mindful of what you’re washing down your drain, and don’t let foods like coffee grounds or egg shells build up in your pipes.

Burst Water Line

A burst water line can send a significant amount of water into your kitchen in a short amount of time. Aging or damaged water lines are especially susceptible to leaks and bursts. Burst pipes are the most common cause of wall water damage.

Make sure you’re regularly checking and inspecting these lines to avoid any costly repairs in the future.

Dishwasher Flood

Old gaskets, loose connections, or a broken latch can all contribute to a dishwasher flooded kitchen. Using the wrong dishwashing soap can even cause your appliance to overflow. However, a dishwasher that leaks from the bottom is almost always caused by a leaky gasket. 

Get a pro on your property to help diagnose the issue.

What To Do if You Have an Appliance Water Leak

Shut Off Water Source

First things first: shutting off the water supply. Locate your water shut-off valve and turn it off to stop the water flow. If you’re having trouble doing this, call a Same Day Restoration professional.

Remove Belongings & Check Lines

Once the water is off, remove any nearby furniture or perishables and store them in a safe, cool place. After you’ve removed your belongings, check the water supply lines for any signs of damage.
