Water Heater Flood Protection in Springdale
Being a homeowner comes with common, inevitable problems. Leaks and flooding are at the top of this list as one of the most common insurance claims for home and business owners. Water damages may not always start where you would think, though. Water heaters are a huge culprit that is typically overlooked.
Water Heater Failure
The average water heater is only built to last about ten years. At this point, almost half of standard storage-type models experience failure and burst. When this finally happens, gallons of water can flood the floor. If your water heater is still automatically refilling, water will continue to pour out until you can get a professional to repair it.
The Best Preventative Solution
Because water heater failure is such a common problem, it’s wise to take preventative measures against potential water damage. That way, you can protect your home and belongings during the initial leak and while you wait for repairs.
