Water Heater Water Damage in New Baltimore?

Do you know the last time your water heater was inspected? In a study prepared by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) three-quarters of all water heaters failed before they become twelve years old, and the chances of a water heater leaking or bursting will dramatically increase when the water heater reaches five years of age. SERVPRO® of Mount Clemens, New Baltimore responds to water damage emergencies throughout the year and offer tips from the IBHS:

Water Heater Loss Prevention and Maintenance Tips

  1. Have a professional plumbing inspection of the anode rod at least once every two years and annually after the warranty expires. The rod will eventually corrode and leave the tank vulnerable to damage.
  2. Remove sediment by flushing the tank every six months. Sediment will build up faster in areas with hard water.

Tankless Versus Tank

You may want to consider purchasing a tankless water heater. Over the years they have become more sophisticated, and some models even can tell you via a smartphone when it needs maintenance. You’ll also save between twenty-seven and fifty percent on fuel costs compares to tank-type heaters.

SERVPRO® of Mount Clemens, New Baltimore responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year in Mount Clemens, and offer these tips from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Weather Service (NOAA) when it looks like a severe thunderstorm is over:

Stay informed: Continue listening to local news or a NOAA Weather Radio to stay updated about severe thunderstorm watches and warnings. More severe thunderstorms could be headed your way.

Contact your family and loved ones: Let your family and close friends know that you’re okay so they can help spread the word. Text messages or social media are more reliable forms of communication than phone calls.

Assess the damage: After the severe weather threat has ended, check your property for damages. When walking through storm damage, wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy shoes. Contact local authorities if you see power lines down. Stay out of damaged buildings. Be aware of insurance scammers if your property has been damaged.

Help your neighbor: If you come across people that are injured and you are properly trained, if needed, provide first aid to victims until emergency response team members arrive.

SERVPRO® of Mount Clemens, New Baltimore responds to water damage emergencies throughout the year in Mount Clemens. Here are some plumbing maintenance tips to help you keep your indoor plumbing in good condition from the Insurance Information Institute:

  • Inspect appliance hoses and faucets. Make it a practice every year to check hoses leading to water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines, and refrigerator ice makers. Immediately replace any hoses that have cracks or leaks and replace them all every five to seven years.
  • Inspect showers and tubs. Check the seal and caulking around showers and tubs to make sure they are watertight and reseal if necessary.
  • Know the location of the main water shut-off valve in your home. A damaged hose or a burst pipe can send water racing into your home. Being able to locate and shut off the main water supply quickly will save stress, money, and time.
  • Install an emergency pressure release valve in your plumbing system
  • Check plumbing and heating pipes. Look closely for cracks and leaks and have any necessary repairs made immediately.

  • Infrared cameras, also called thermal imaging cameras, are used to detect heat (infrared energy) and converts the heat into an electronic signal that produces a thermal image on a screen that then performs temperature calculations. Infrared cameras are used to identify the location of the water for thorough water removal.
  • Hygrometers are used to measure the amount of water vapor in the air. When mitigating water damage hygrometers help us monitor the humidity levels as an area is being dried so we can restore the area to normal moisture levels.
