Preventing water damage
Regularly check the water pipes in your home for leaks and ensure that water does not leak on the floor from the dishwasher, refrigerator or washing machine.
A plastic leak pan is required under the refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher. It is installed at the same time as the device. Do not install a dishwasher yourself – leave it to a professional.
Do not leave the dishwasher or washing machine on when leaving the apartment. Always keep the dishwasher and washing machine valves closed when not using the machines.
If there is a water leak in your home, try to close off the water line with the shut-off valve. If you live in a block of flats, report the leak to the housing company’s on-call number immediately.
