January 24, 2016

Ugh! The joys of home-ownership : ( I had just laid down to go to bed when Charlie frantically called up to me that the garage was flooding! The hot water heater had cracked and instead of going into the garage only, it went into the playroom and filled about a third of the room in a matter of minutes. Since we're basically water damage pros at this point, we knew just what to do. Fans to the rescue! We used our steam cleaner and shop vac for over three hours pulling water our of the carpet and dumping the water that was draining out of the water heater. The carpet was pulled up for almost a week so we could make sure it was totally dried before we laid it back down. Home Depot installed a new water heater the next morning and we were back up and running, but it was a total pain!
