Refrigerator Water Cleanup in a Camillus Kitchen

Homeowners count on their appliances to work for them consistently, and one of the most reliable of them is the refrigerator. However, even this trusty kitchen must-have can experience a variety of issues that can allow water to penetrate surfaces and floors without fast mitigation. 

If your Camillus home requires water cleanup due to an appliance failure or another issue, IICRC-certified SERVPRO technicians are always available to restore your home to its preloss condition. SERVPRO uses a variety of water damage mitigation tools to dry your home, including back-mounted extractors, air movers, dehumidifiers, deodorizers, and EPA-registered antimicrobials to ensure that your possessions are returned to a safe and dry condition. The emphasis in cleanup is placed on salvaging when feasible so that you can minimize losses and get back to enjoying your home as it was. 

Minimizing Refrigerator Leaks

  • Keep the refrigerator level. If your fridge is off-balance, water cannot flow into the drain hole properly, which can cause leaks to form under the refrigerator. If your refrigerator shuts on its own when you turn away, your fridge needs to be adjusted so that it is level. 
  • Clean the drain hole. Every so often, the drain hole gets blogged by food particles and debris, which can cause an overflow.
  • Check for supply line clogs, leaks, or kinks. Be sure to unplug the fridge and shut off the water supply before you start troubleshooting. Shutoff valves for the fridge are often located behind the refrigerator, under the sink, or in the basement. 

SERVPRO Dries Your Kitchen

When water damage affects your home, SERVPRO technicians can use state-of-the-art drying tools to restore it to a clean, dry condition. Two of the most critical tools for water damage mitigation are centrifugal air movers and low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers. Air movers are typically placed at 45-degree angles in relation to affected walls and run in tandem with dehumidifiers to pull moisture out of surfaces and replace it with warm, dry air. Technicians can erect polyethylene drying chambers to increase the efficiency of drying in a contained space. 

SERVPRO of SW Onondaga County wants to ensure that your home looks, "Like it never even happened." When disaster strikes in your residence, you can call (315) 488-3900.
