Washing Machine Overflows and leaks can cause a lot of water damage if the leak isn’t in a confined space with a drainage system close by. Because homes and apartments sometimes have their washing machines on a second floor, the overflowing water can damage the carpeted areas on that floor and then seep into the floor and walls, ultimately, causing damage to the ceiling on the floor below. If the water is left standing for a long period of time, it can lead to mold growth and damage to floor. Even if you think you’ve cleaned all of the water up, if the water has gotten into the carpets, you may be surprised at what you may have missed.
