Water heater and water tank failures can happen at any time, often without warning, and can cause substantial flooding and water damage to your Central Rockies home or business. Two primary reasons for water heater leaks are corrosion of the tank 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 overheated which will keep it open almost continuously. Because water heaters are frequently placed in the basement or a closet area that is not commonly used, even a small leak can cause extensive water damage to the floor, sub-floor, and walls.
The same mineral deposits can cause corrosion of the tank valves, which can trigger tank leaks. At KW Construction and Restoration-Colorado Springs, we have state-of-the-art water extraction equipment and IICRC-certified water damage professionals to get the job done quickly and prevent further damage to your property. We provide an estimate and inspection and can determine your source of water damage.
Routine maintenance of your water heater is critical in preventing leaks and extending the longevity of your appliance. Often, water heaters are neglected because they are stored in garages or utility closets and largely forgotten until they malfunction.
KW Construction & Restoration-Colorado Springs recommends several easy and inexpensive ways to perform annual maintenance on your water heater. Setting the temperature and adding insulation can increase the heater's efficiency and only has to be done once. Removing mineral deposits by flushing the tank and checking the anode rod must be performed annually. Replace the anode rod if it has been corroded as this will help prevent rust in your tank.
Annual maintenance will help prevent water heater leaks and flooding. Be proactive by adding a water heater overflow pan under your tank to capture water and prevent moisture problems by draining water away.
