Water Heater Leaking In Your Home? Here’s What To Do
Standard water heaters contain up to 40-120 gallons of water, so when one unexpectedly leaks or bursts it can collapse ceilings, flood entire garages, and cause permanent structural damage. Even something as innocent sounding as a small water heater leak can destroy your walls, flooring, and cause mold to grow.
If you notice your water heater is burst or leaking, call out a plumber and water cleanup specialist immediately. While you’re waiting for them to arrive follow these steps to protect yourself and your property:
Turn off the power supply
Turn of the power supply to your water heater. This will vary depending on if you have a gas or electric water heater. If it’s a gas water heater, twist the thermostat from the ON position to the OFF position. If it’s an electric water heater, locate your breaker box and switch off the individual breaker for your water heater. Switch off the main breaker if you’re having trouble finding the individual breaker.
Turn off the water supply
This will stop further flooding or leaks. Turn the water supply valve clockwise until it stops. If water is still pouring out, turn off the main water supply line to your home or business. Here’s an easy tutorial video on how to turn off the main water supply line.
Drain the tank if you need to
When the specialists arrive they’ll drain your tank, but if it’s leaking badly you might want to begin draining it yourself to prevent water damage. Drain the water heater by attaching a hose to the drain faucet at the bottom of the tank. The water that comes out will be rusty and hot, so run the other end of the hose to an area of the property where it won’t cause damage.
Open the T&P valve
After draining the water, open the Temperature & Pressure (T&P) relief valve. Flip the handle, place a bucket underneath it, and stand back as the water will be scalding hot.
If a water heater is on the second level of your home and the flooding is causing ceilings to sag or collapse, evacuate the premises until it’s declared safe to re-enter.
Water heater overflows are not a DIY job
If you have water damage from a leaking or overflowing water heater, do not attempt to handle the situation on your own. Mopping up the water and calling it a day won’t solve the problem. Water can seep into walls and flooring, and if not extracted properly it could cause further structural damage and mold problems down the line.
Call a Regent Restoration burst water heater cleanup specialist today at (214) 731-4624. We’ll extract the water, find any hidden water damage in walls and sub-flooring, and create a quick drying process using professional-grade equipment and techniques.
