Q. How do I know when my property is completely dry?
A. You need to test with a moisture meter and restoration equipment to ensure that the water extraction process is precisely done, and there is no moisture left.

Q. After removing water from the house, will turning on the heater help to dry the place?
A. For the proper drying, you need to set the optimum temperature. Also, the equal heat temperature should reach every corner of the house. If the water is flooded due to some minor leakage, turning on the heater at optimum temperature may help. But you should not turn off the heater until the moisture level is zero. However, for floods, natural disasters, and bursting pipes, it’s better to seek professional assistance for water extraction and dehumidification.

Water heater Repair
Q. What are the most common problems with the water heater?
A. Water temperature issues, leaks, discolored water, no hot water, and noises are the most common problems with the water heater. Whenever you face such issues, call EZ Plumbing and Restoration to fix the issue on the spot.
Q. Should I flush out my water heater at regular intervals?
A. Sediments collect at the bottom of the water heater, depending on how hard the water flows through pipes. However, when you flush out the water heater, the drain valve will not drain bigger particles. Also, you are advised not to flush out the water heater on your own as, when draining, sediment may enter the rubber seal preventing the drainpipe from proper closure. In such a case, your valve may leak, so it’s recommended to get professional assistance.
