Standing Water Near The Kitchen Island

A Logan Square homeowner noticed water pooling near their dishwasher and around their kitchen island. They were concerned about the potential for mold growth, which could pose a serious health risk to their children.

Dishwasher Failure Causes Water Damage

Upon inspection, the water leak was caused by a dishwasher failure. The water leaked through the wooden floor and into the unit below.

The leak was a Category 1 loss, which is characterized by water originating from a clean source with no significant risk of causing illness. If left untreated, it can increase to a Category 2 loss.

Professional Water Cleanup Services

Our water damage professionals set up a containment area around the kitchen island. This served to trap heat and help dry out both the hardwood floor and the island itself.

Over the course of three days, a thorough drying process was carried out to ensure that no moisture remained, preventing any potential mold growth. The homeowner was kept informed and reassured that their home and family’s well-being were being taken care of.
