What to Do if Your Hot Water Heater Causes Flood or Water Damage to Your Upper Darby Home

A hot water heater leak may seem like a minor problem at first but it can lead to damage to walls, floors and sub-floors if it is not addressed immediately. It could also be the symptom of a larger problem and, in some cases, can cause significant water damage. The longer water is allowed to sit your home the more damage it has the potential to do and the higher the cost for repairs and replacing damaged items.
