After experiencing an appliance leak, a bedraggled homeowner said to us, “There’s no such thing as a little bit of water,” especially when it comes to leaks in your home.
Consider this scenario: you come home from work one day and see a puddle of water on your kitchen floor near your dishwasher. You hope it is just a small leak but find that there is actually significant damage under the floor and in the adjacent wall as this leak has been occurring for weeks. And once drywall and joists become saturated, mold quickly follows. This is not a mop-only clean-up.
