Hot water heaters can be found in basements, closets, garages, and attics. Of those places, the last one you want to have sprung a leak is the one in the attic. Every drop of water that escapes is going to work its way down through your home, soaking into and ruining the wood, insulation, drywall, paint, carpet, and even flooring. The leak may exist for day, weeks, or even longer before it’s discovered, and the damage by that point could be extensive. To make matters worse, many attics are difficult to access, which makes fixing the leak harder than you might think. Carrying bags of heavy tools up a steep ladder, through a tight access hatch, and working in the dark while trying to find and stop a leak is even less fun than it sounds.
But stopping the leak is only the beginning, and there’s much work still left to do. Anywhere the water has soaked in is now incredibly vulnerable to mold, mildew, and even structural damage. Wood beams become very weak once mold sets in, and will need to be replaced. Mold not only smells horrible, but is a major health risk as well, so drywall, carpeting, and more all need to be dried properly, or ripped out and replaced.
As restoration service professionals and licensed general contractors, we can help. We’re available 24/7 to not only stop the leak, but assess the damage, work with your insurance company, and begin the process of repairing your home. Call our emergency hot-line at 919-467-1991.
