Hot Water Tank Supply Failure in Garage
SERVPRO of Edmonds came to the rescue when a hot water tank leaked inside this garage damaging a large portion of the drywall. If you experience a leaking water heater, it is recommended to turn off the water to your tank. Your water heater tank should have a dedicated shutoff valve on the cold inlet pipes. If this is a gate-style valve (a wheel that turns), turn the valve clockwise as far as you can. If the valve is a ball-style valve, turn the handle 180 degrees.If this valve is broken, you can shut the water off to your home. Each home should have a main water shut off valve that would stop the flow of water to the entire house. If you need help locating your shut-offs due to water damage give us a call at 425-775-5723.
