Burst Water Heater

Cleanup Details & Information

What Should You Do When Your Water Heater Bursts?

It is not always obvious why a water heater may burst. The heating element may overheat the water due to a malfunctioning thermostat, causing the volume inside the tank to be too much for the seams to hold. Or a fitting may have corroded, resulting in a major leak. To prevent further damage to your home, you need to act quickly no matter what the cause may be.

That is when you call Houston RestorePros. We offer fast emergency services related to a burst water heater.

A Nightmare Scenario

The scene dreaded by every homeowner is far too common. You receive a phone call from a neighbor or the fire department while you are away at work, traveling, or on vacation – Your old water heater finally gave out and burst, allowing water to flow quickly into your residence and flooding your home. It could take months to completely clean and remove rust and other harmful materials from your home, not to mention the damage that dozens of gallons of water will do alone.

Regardless of how well you maintain your storage-type water heater, this is an inevitable outcome if the water heater is not replaced with old age. A catastrophic failure caused by mineral deposits or old equipment could eventually leave your home in a mess, but the severity of damage can vary considerably depending on several factors. You might want to brush up on how devastating a burst water heater can be if you still use a storage heater in your house, especially if you’ve noticed it running slower lately.

Burst tanks may not always shut off automatically, so if nobody is around to shut off the power, the heater could run for hours after the tank bursts. It’s unlikely for your water heater to burst, but the chance of catastrophic damage caused by faulty water heaters still remains, so it’s strange that homeowners would put up with the risk at all — especially when tankless water heaters provide superior performance without the risks associated with conventional home heaters.

What Our Customers Are Saying


Juan, Tony, and all the folks over at HRP were fantastic. They came out very soon after we called them and were responsive throughout the several weeks remediation and repair process. They remediated and repaired significant damage caused by a water leak in an interior bathroom that had spread into an adjacent pantry and through an adjacent room. We will definitely use their services again if ever needed.
