Dish Washer Flooding Issues

The top row of brown and light brown cabinets have an empty cabinet spot to the right of them on the wall is black mold spots

Did you know that your dishwasher will usually drain into the kitchen sink drain or garbage disposal? If these are clogged, the water will not go down the pipes and may back-flow into your dishwasher, causing flooding. When this happens water gets under your dishwasher and into your flooring and cabinets making it hard for you to clean properly. Meaning, yes you may clean the water around it but water may be absorbed into your cabinets and flooring if not dried well this could cause mold issues later on.

Here are the steps recommended to clean and dry cabinets after they’ve been exposed to excessive water.

  1. Remove all items from the cabinet.
  2. Remove excess water pooling inside cabinets. Soak up water with towels and wipe dry the cabinet interior.
  3. Take off cabinet doors. ...
  4. Utilize drying equipment. ...
  5. Reduce humidity. ...
  6. Dry the hidden spaces. ...
  7. Prevent mold contamination.
