Is Your Hot Water Heater Leaking? Get Roto-Rooter

Do you have hot water heater leaking in Greenville? What a pain! No one likes to find water where it should not be. It means that immediate action is required and it means a shot to your wallet. If you are lucky, you can just tighten all the fittings on the water heater and your problem will be solved. However, if you have neglected to change your anode rod when it wore out, your heater tank may be corroded. This will result in your floor being flooded with the entire contents of the tank.

Before you run to the garage for your utility vacuum, give the friendly people at Roto-Rooter a quick call. We are experts at fixing, servicing, and replacing water heaters of any type. We are also available to come as soon as you call, day or night, any day of the year, even on Christmas or July fourth. You can get back to the water clean up as soon as you know we are on our way.

Rather than just replacing your water heater with the same thing you’ve had, consider the possibilities of a tankless variety. These are really efficient and only heat the water when you turn on the tap. There is no tank, so there will be no hot water heater leaking in Greenville  anymore. They are definitely more costly up front, but they have a much longer life than a traditional tank water heater. Just think how great it will be on a busy morning when you jump in the shower and all the hot water hasn’t been used up by your teenagers. No more cold showers for you, unless you choose them!

If the flooding from the leaky water heater has reached your carpeting, your clean up will be more involved. First, you’ll need to vacuum as much of the water out as you can. Then you will have to pull the carpeting back and cut the affected parts of the pad out and throw them away. The pad will have to be replaced when the carpet dries. After you’ve removed the pad, put industrial fans around the room to blow on the carpet and turn up the heat. This will dry the area quickly and prevent the growth of mold and mildew. If it is taking too long to dry, you will be alerted to the fact by the odor of mildew.
