San Ysidro Residents Want to Know

At SERVPRO® of Otay Mesa/San Ysidro, we know that our fast response time saves our customers money by minimizing the potential for more time-consuming repairs. Washing machine supply line failure is a common cause of water damage. Here are some washing machine loss prevention and maintenance tips from the Institute for Business and Home Safety to prevent water damage:

  • Look for signs the supply hose may be ready to fail—blisters in the hose, worn tubing, stress cracks, or a loose connection
  • Replace the supply hose with a reinforced steel braided hose if it shows any sign of wear
  • Tighten the connection if it feels loose. The most common site of failure is near the connection where the hose bends.
  • Replace supply hoses every five years, even if there is no obvious deterioration or wear.
  • Some signs of deterioration may occur from the inside out and may not be visible until it is too late
  • When replacing washing machine supply hoses, always choose a reinforced steel braided hose over the traditional un-reinforced rubber hose. These hoses will last longer and are far less likely to result in a catastrophic water loss.
