Water Removal and Cleanup Services in Dallas, TX Apartment
From time to time, home appliances and technology made to make our lives more convenient can actually cause more problems than they solve. This Dallas apartment pictured above encountered flooding over their wooden tiles after an error occurred with the laundry machine - the washing machine could not detect how much water was currently inside, meaning it did not know at what level to stop filling up, and continued to allow water to enter the machine. The laundry machine must be able to detect when there is too much water on the inside, in order to begin the draining process and prevent incidents such as the one described here.
In this scenario, once the washing machine can no longer hold the water inside, the doors can no longer hold the machine shut and the rising water levels will force itself out of the machine and spill onto the apartment floor.
As soon as an incident such as this occurs, the first step is to shut off the valves controlling the water that is connected to the machine, in order to stop the ongoing flow of water. In an apartment building, it may be difficult to get water outside through the doors in your unit if there are not many available, and without causing further damage to any areas outside your apartment.
If a situation like this arises, it is important to act quickly to prevent water damage in your unit, and to also prevent any leaks or water from getting into the apartments of the neighboring units. Call our professional Dallas water damage restoration team if your apartment is dealing with flooding, leaks, or any other water damage that requires expert assistance.
