How does a Water Heater Overflow or Water Heater Burst Happen?
A majority of water heater overflows happen from a leak in an older water heater tank that either has a worn out seal, gasket, or has rusted. In some instances a water heater can actually burst or explode. Leaks are actually more common but do have the potential to flood the area of the water heater and can really damage a home if undetected for a few days or possibly weeks.
Little by little a leak can quietly flood your basement or home and a majority of the time it happens when your water heating tank fittings get corroded or damaged. Even though this type of flooding isn’t a water heater burst, it can have the same effect on damaging your homes structures and belongings. We do recommend you have regular water heater check-ups but disasters can happen, and the team here at Insurance Restoration Services Las Vegas can help with any flood damage to your home!
