You may have never thought that your refrigerator could be the cause of a catastrophic flood in your Phoenix home. SERVPRO is here to make sure you know the dangers of refrigerator floods and what causes them before it is too late.

#1 - Too Much Condensation

The drain pan at the bottom of your refrigerator is there to catch condensation where it can then evaporate. However, there are cases where too much condensation can build up causing an overflow of water out of your fridge. Make sure to check your drain pan and make sure the water level is not too high.

#2 - Drain Line Clogs

Your refrigerators' drain lines are susceptible to clogs. This means little pieces of food can work their way into your fridges' drain pipes causing a build up of water. Make sure to check the fridges drain lines for clogs to avoid a potential flood.

#3 - Ice Machine Supply Line

The water supply line that connects to the ice machine has the capability of coming loose and wreaking havoc in your home. If the supply line comes loose it will let water out in inappropriate areas of the fridge causing a flood. Check to make sure the supply line that feeds the ice machine is properly connected.

Now you may know the possible dangers associated with refrigerators and how they can cause an unwanted leakage or flood of water in your home.
