Water Heater Leaks & Bursts in NW Arkansas & Little Rock

One of the most common causes of flooding in a home or business is a leaky water heater. When this happens, more than just flooding and water damage can. That is why your first move should be a call to the IICRC-certified technicians from Anchor Services to let them safely remedy the problem.

The Dangers of a Leaky Water Heater

When hot water leaks from your water heater or from one of the pipes that lead to it, the surrounding area will fill with scalding water and create a dangerous situation until you stop the flow of water. Even when flooding has receded, danger still exists because the liquid may have drenched sockets and switches, creating an electrocution hazard. If the overflow is minimal but still caused water damage, the chances of mold and mildew growth is another problem that must be addressed.

Water heater overflow also can damage your floorboards, walls, furniture and other items if the floodwaters accumulate before the flow of water is stopped. Because most water heaters are located in basements, garages and other out-of-the-way places, leaks or burst pipes tend to create significant damage before they are noticed by a resident.

What to Do About Overflow & Leaks

When you experience a water heater problem such as an overflow or a burst pipe, a quick checklist of actions to take include:

  • Shut off the main water supply
  • Cut off the electric power if water approaches sockets and switches
  • Move contents in the affected area to a dry place
  • Contact Anchor Services for help

Water heater overflow is not something to take lightly nor is it something that you should try to handle yourself. The hot water that is released from an overflowing or burst heater can pose a very real danger to you if you try to remedy the problem yourself.
