It’s a nightmare for every homeowner: walking into a room and stepping on to waterlogged carpet or into a puddle of water. This scenario occurs whenever a water pipe in a home bursts. This can happen due to many reasons, including the afore-mentioned water pressure increase we are experiencing in the Columbia area or from other factors like extreme temperatures or faulty pipe connections.
While burst or leaking plumbing pipes can lead to flooding in your home, it’s important to remember that the #1 cause of flood damage in our area stems from burst or leaking washing machine hoses. Oftentimes, the rubber hoses can’t hold up to the continuous beating from water pressure and wear and tear. And when they go, a tremendous amount of water can be spewed onto the floor, into the floor and below the floor….
To keep this from happening, make sure you check your washing machine hoses for wear and tear and also that the hook-up is secure. Replacement of hoses is relatively inexpensive compared to the damage that ruptured hoses can cause.
Call your friends at Franklin today for more information or to find out the proper hose and installation for your washing machine.
