Summer Water Heater Damage

6/18/2021 (Permalink)

This summer at SERVPRO of West Greenville County we have had multiple calls regarding a water loss due to water heater pipes busting. Did you know that this occurrence is very common? There are a few things that causes these pipes to burst in the summertime and a few ways that you can prevent it. Some of the main issues that cause pipes in the water heater to burst during the summer are, pipe erosion and corrosion, clogged pipes, and pipes that have been poorly installed. The best thing you can do to help prevent any kind of pipe bursting is to stay ahead of any erosion or corrosion or clogged pipes by having them inspected annually. This will help to prevent any kind of build up that can lead to severe water damage. Even if you do stay on top of yearly maintenance of your pipes, accidents can still happen. If you do find yourself suffering water damage due to a water heater leak or busted pipe, give us a call at SERVPRO of West Greenville County. We are available 24/7 for your water mitigation needs.
