Cleaning Up a Ruptured Water Heater in Your Spokane Home

Tank-style water heaters are still a typical element you can find in most Spokane homes. Many factors begin to work against your water heater from the date it gets installed, including minerals present in the public water systems and consistent minute pressure fluctuations that can stress connectors, threading, and the tank itself. Over the years, your system can throttle down its effectiveness as scaling and buildup occur within the pipes, which can lead to eventual malfunctions.

Between a natural degradation of your water heater and instances like freezing when cold snaps occur, the emptied contents of your tank requires fast water removal for Spokane homes. Whenever these emergencies occur, you need a team that you can trust to arrive quickly and begin extraction and drying efforts. The sooner these processes can begin, the better protected your basement area or main floor in the house can be.

Addressing the standing water damage before it can penetrate drywall and other materials to affect structural cavities is an important step as well. Once the damage has spread a considerable distance, it becomes more and more challenging not to require controlled demolition and reconstruction efforts. While we have a team of licensed contractors that can help with these needs, we are always looking to keep costs as low as possible for our customers.

Cleaning up after a water loss incident like this often requires the use of our wet-vacs and extraction wands, as standing water is unlikely to exceed the two inches in depth ideal for more powerful extraction tools in our inventory. Once the excess water has gotten removed, we can set up multiple air movers along with our dehumidification units to draw out moisture and dry up damaged materials and environments before mold growth or structural deterioration can begin.

With many homes still using tank water heaters, the threat of this substantial water loss incident always exists. If losses do occur, you can count on our SERVPRO of Northeast Spokane team that has proven that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. Give us a call anytime at (509) 474-9144.
