Preventing Water Damage in the Laundry Room
Most people normally put the washer and drier in their laundry rooms. These machines do produce heat and moisture and as such, you need to do maintenance that will help prevent mold from building up and other water related problems.
Below are quick to understand guidelines that will give you great tips and indications for potential problems that can be caused by utility sinks, washers, dryers and filters.
The washer is normally connected to the hot and cold water sources. We advise that you check them from time to time. You can start by checking the joints and if you find a leak, fix it. Dont forget to check both ends of the water lines.
Its a good idea to replace the filters once in a while. When a filter is blocked, it slow the water movement into the washing machine which can end up in serious malfunctions. This is especially worse in households that are supplied with hard water.
Open and inspect the shut off valve by searching for drips into the washing machine while you are not using it. Should you notice a leak, we recommend you replace the valve ASAP.
Hoses & Filters
In many appliances, problems do often start inside the hose. We recommend that you you keep at least 4 inches between the water connection and the back of the washer. What this does is stop the hose from kinking itself and bursting as a result.
If the hoses are old, replace them. A better replacement would be to buy and install steel-braided hoses.
The dryer is another component that needs to be checked. It is connected to a ventilation hose. Make sure that the dryer ventilation hose is connected to the outdoors.
Check it carefully and look out for lint behind & under the dryer and also make sure that there is no clogging on the vent pipe. Also ensure that the exhaust is as short as possible for the dryer to vent efficiently,
Lastly, do check the utility sink. In some instances, this is the trigger for water related problems. Look out for leaks under the sink. If you do notice dripping of water under the sink, fix it immediately as this can be a bad sign of problems you will face and as such should be repaired immediately.
If you notice slow draining pipes, this may indicate that the there is a partially blocked drain. A faucet that is dripping all the time should be repaired ASAP.
Another thing that you need to do is check the sink seals and if there are cracked or loose, replace them. If you notice damp or stained walls around your plumbing pipes, fix them before more damage occurs. Stained walls indicate that there are internal leaks.
