6 Most Common Causes of Water Damage in the Kitchen

Water is essential to cooking and cleaning in the kitchen. But water, in large amounts and in the wrong areas, can lead to disastrous cases of water damage. Homeowners can prevent minor and major water damage in the kitchen by knowing its various causes.

A functional and often-utilized kitchen is filled with water damage hazards. Water boiling in a pot or from a drinking glass can spill. Soups simmering on the stove can splash. When left unaddressed, the liquids’ prolonged contact with surfaces can lead to water damage.

Kitchen appliances, too, can be a source of water damage. The refrigerator might spring a leak. The kitchen sink faucets can leak when its parts become worn over time. The dishwasher, as any other appliance, can malfunction and spew water onto the kitchen flooring.

Significant water damage, such as from a leaky dishwasher, will be readily apparent. In such cases, the water damage can be repaired right away. However, the water damage may be so minor that it is unnoticeable. Minor water damage can develop into a major problem later on.
