Water Heater Leaks

8/19/2019 (Permalink)

Notice all of the damage around this leaking water heater. The leak was not discovered for months! Don' t let this be your water heater.

A leaking water heater can cause great damage to your property. The leaking water can damage the walls and floors surrounding the water heater, seep deep down into the foundation thus causing more problems in the future, and it could even lead to mold growth. 

That is why it is good to prevent the leaks by regularly maintaining your water heater at least once a year. With good maintenance, a water heater can last at least a decade. So, you won't need to worry about replacing it often. But do try and keep track of that decade mark so you can get a new one when and if needed.

If you do discover that your water heater has a leak or has been leaking, we highly advise that you get the leak fixed and affected area dried right away. This will help to prevent any long term damage which will save you money and stress. 

A plumber can help fix it, we can help dry it of course! As quickly and efficiently as possible!

So in conclusion, maintain your water heater. But, if there's an accident, never fear, SERVPRO is always here!
