Water Heater Leak and Dry Out by EZ Restoration LLC


Water heater leaks often occur without warning, creating a water damage emergency for homeowners. If you are experiencing a leaking hot water system, it is imperative that you contact a dry-out professional as soon as possible to contain the situation and dry out all affected areas quickly to avoid further, more expensive damage. Pooling water and even moisture left to sit in dark places, such as within your ceiling or walls is a haven for mildew and mold growth.

Why Do Water Heaters Burst?

There are three primary causes of water heaters breaking; build-up of sediment, corrosion in the tank, and too much pressure. The latter is the biggest culprit we see when we get a call for a burst hot water heater. Well-functioning water heaters have a relief valve that opens up when pressure begins to build in the system, but tanks wear down over the years and components can become faulty. When this occurs, too much pressure builds in the tank, leading to a burst or explosion. Regular HVAC maintenance should be performed, but if you have an emergency, call the water damage pros at EZ Restoration LLC for immediate action.


What to Do if Your Hot Water Heater Breaks

  1. Quickly turn off the water supply from the valve located on your water heater to prevent further water damage
  2. Use caution - Your system may be hot. Open the pressure relief valve to release any pressure in the system
  3. Rinse with cold water to quickly get water temperatures down
  4. Call EZ Restoration LLC to assess the damage and begin the drying out process


What If I Have Water Dripping From the Ceiling?

If you've had a large enough leak to penetrate walls and flooring, call EZ Restoration LLC immediately to begin the process of drying out all affected areas and keep water damage to a minimum. If a good deal of water has leaked from your water heater, we may need to expose walls or floorboards to fully dry interior structures. The benefits of quickly drying all surfaces are the prevention of mildew and dangerous mold growth, and the prevention of costly damage in the future. EZ Restoration LLC has cared for homes and businesses in the area that have suffered water heater rupture for over 11 years, and we've got a crew standing by to help you too. Simply call (201) 630-7388 for quick action.
