I live in California. 7 months ago, we did a complete kitchen remodel. New cabinets, new wood floor, new appliances, countertops, etc. I just found out today that my dishwasher drain line has been leaking for 7 months. We didnt detect it immediately because the kitchen floor is slightly uneven and the water was pooling towards the back of the wall. Behind my dishwasher and under the floor, it is VERY WET. The drywall is soaked, the floor is saturated and my cabinets are showing signs of water saturation.
My question is….can I file a claim against my homeowners insurance? Im fearful that there is massive water damage behind the walls and that a quick fix will only lead to more repairs down the road.
