Water Damage Sustained from a Faulty Water Heater in Dayton
SERVPRO Restores Water Damaged Properties Every Day
Boilers and water heaters can be difficult to keep an eye on while trying to figure out where the water which is damaging your home is entering. Since water heaters are installed in areas that are inconspicuous, such as the attic, a storage room or the basement, overflow can go undetected for longer periods of time. When your water heater gets older, rust can develop. This rust can wear out the parts of the tank that are mechanical and erode the surfaces, which causes leaks, and even worse, explosions. Therefore, you should have your water heater routinely serviced so that these checkups can prevent costly and dangerous damages due to a faulty device.
Even with these checkups, sometimes a problem can arise, causing unexpected water damage to your Dayton home. This leakage leading to damage can require the immediate assistance of water damage remediation experts, such as our staff at SERVPRO. We can come out to your home quickly, assess the damages and make a plan of restoration so your home can be returned to normal as soon as possible.
Some of the most common risks of overflows from water heaters include:
Damages to Appliances - A lot of water heaters are situated near other electrical equipment, like dryers and washing machines. One single and sustained leak can destroy electrical components and create an even larger repair bill.
Burns, Electrocution, and Fires– Hot water can spew out of water heaters if they burst, or slowly leak hot water. Be cautious that you do not get burned by covering up with protective clothing. You also need to be wary of electrocution and potential fire hazards because water acts as an excellent conductor of electricity. Be safe and call SERVPRO.
Water restoration isn’t something to take lightly. There are standards which were created by the IICRC for proper training on the extraction of water from walls, carpets, ceilings, and floors. These standards are in place to protect your home from the corroding of wood and metal which supports your house.
