What Causes Water Heater Leaks?
Two primary reasons for water heater leaks are tank corrosion and valve failure.
Corrosion of the tank occurs when mineral deposits settle to the bottom of the tank and, over time, corrode the liner and heater elements.
The temperature-pressure (TP) relief valve may have excessive pressure or become overheated, causing it to malfunction and leak.
Because water heaters are frequently placed in the basement or a closet that is not commonly used, even a small leak can cause extensive residential and commercial water damage to the floor, sub-floor, and walls.
Basement flooding and high humidity in a home or business creates optimal conditions for the growth of mold and mildew — especially if the leak goes undetected for a period of time. At Midwest Remediation we have modern water extraction equipment, and our IICRC-trained professionals have the expertise to efficiently rid your building of excess water.
