A dishwasher will not keep your valuables safe in a hurricane


In case you’ve seen the article rolling around Facebook about it being safe to store things in your dishwasher, because it’s waterproof, during a hurricane- back up. And stop before you even start. 1


The Tampa Bay Times spoke to an appliance and repair shop owner who sees flooded dishwashers all the time and the truth is that they flood all the time, too. If your home floods your can almost bet your dishwasher will too. During storms like Irma, dishwashers could also turn on, be ripped apart by the wind, or thrown and pop open. It’s not a safe bet. 2

Stay safe and smart everyone.
