Don’t Let A Water Heater Malfunction Cause Water Damage To Your Bronx Home

5/30/2019 (Permalink)

Water heaters are a critical component to comfortable living, but can also be a catalyst of substantial water loss incidents for your property.

Water Heater Malfunction In Your Bronx Home Can Cause Damages

Water heaters are a vital component to comfortable living in every home throughout the Bronx. With the role that they play in setting specific water temperatures, damage to this unit could be devastating to your house in multiple ways. With many of these appliances capable of housing forty to sixty gallons of water at any given time, a breach in the tank can flood the immediate area of your property and require immediate, focused attention to resolve.

Ultimately there are many ways that this larger loss incident must get handled, and effective mitigation efforts must start with water removal in your Bronx home. Our SERVPRO professionals have state-of-the-art extraction tools and equipment capable of removing standing water at a rate of up to 300 psi. Understanding how your water heater can break and continue to cause problems for your home is also an important selling point for your need for professionally trained restoration specialists.

These appliances are water fed, often with an independent supply hose and a discharge line that connects directly into the plumbing network for the entire property. Age, degradation, and damage to the unit can all lead to leaks that can drain the tank. Even with preventative valves and flow stoppage, you can still lose the entirety of the stored volume before the situation levels off, and flow ceases.

When there is no immediate shutoff with a check valve, the water flow can continue until the homeowner or our SERVPRO rapid response team manually stops it. This situation can become even more threatening to construction materials, contents, and structural elements exposed. We can work quickly to remove standing and spreading water from your house and begin vital drying efforts with air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers.

Water heaters are a critical component to comfortable, modern living but can also be a catalyst of substantial water loss incidents for your property. Our SERVPRO of South Bronx professionals can help with fast extraction solutions to make this damage “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (347) 590-9902.
