The levees are bursting and the dams are in danger – now is the time to shore up your own infrastructure and take good care of your hot water heater!
A flooded garage is not the greatest way to get that indoor jacuzzi you have been dreaming about. But when it does happen, here are some steps you can take to recover and repair your hot water heater.
- You want to remove all of the water damaged furniture and personal items that you want to dry and salvage. Start with the items closest to your hot water heater.
- You can use a sump pump, wet-dry vacuum, dehumidifier or fans to drain the water and dry out your basement.
- The next big task is to remove the damaged sections of your wall coverings (including your drywall and/or paneling) and insulation. Make sure to dry and ventilate wall holes to limit mold and mildew growth.
- In dramatic damage situations, you may have to excavate around your basement and apply a barrier to exterior walls to prevent water from leaching through.
