Water Damage Are Appliances Causing Water Damage in Your Orem Residence? Leaking water heaters can mean lots of water in your house.SERVPRO can remediate the water damage and restore your house to its dry condition.

Where Homeowners in Orem Usually Need Help with Water Cleanup

Not every job we take in Orem involving water cleanup stems from a storm or life-changing disaster. Throughout your home, there are likely many appliances that use water in their normal functions, and all of them could be at risk of breaking or malfunctioning. Although the water lines connected to these appliances may seem relatively small, they can still unleash large volumes of water on your home if the flow does not get cut off quickly. Here are some of the appliances and furnishings we regularly see water damage issues stemming from in the average home.

Sinks, Showers, and Bathtubs

Many of our day-to-day water cleanup jobs in Orem stem from amenities with faucets in the home. Even with high-quality water lines and faucets supporting them, these water outlets carry a constant, small risk of developing water damage issues ranging from a minuscule leak to a minor flooding event. Sometimes, just leaving the faucet running can be enough to create permanent water damage. SERVPRO technicians specialize in accessing and shutting off water lines to prevent further damage from happening.


Incidents stemming from malfunctioning dishwashers can pose an extra challenge for our technicians, as these appliances use significant volumes of hot water. Should a water line or the appliance itself break, this can create a safety hazard as well as a colossal mess. If your dishwasher breaks in such a way that it begins to spew hot water, we recommend waiting for SERVPRO to arrive on the scene before trying to shut off flow.

Water Heaters

Like dishwashers, water heaters can pose a significant safety risk if ruptured. However, they often pose an even greater threat to the home, as their flow of water is not as easily contained. Fortunately, most water heaters are located in garages, laundry rooms, and other non-essential areas of the home and can be easier to clean up quickly.
