Where is your hot water heater?

A leaky hot water heater in an attic Hot water heaters in an attic can flood an entire home quickly, causing major water damage.

What could possibly be worse than a leaky hot water heater? The answer is a leaky hot water heater in an attic…of a two story home…in a vacant house! Houses go on the real estate market every day, most estimate over a million vacant homes in the U.S. alone. In a busy world such as ours, these vacant homes can go days, weeks, months without a showing or checkup. That means a lot left unattended. It is important to always check vacant properties, especially during weather events. Hot water heaters or any plumbing could spring a leak flooding floor after floor. The longer it runs, the more damage that water can do.
