A leaky water heater causing rust and water damage. If water heaters are not maintained properly, water damage is almost always guaranteed.

Our team at SERVPRO of Claremont / Montclair always want to help our community out with tips and tricks on upkeeping things around the house and office. Today we have a few tips everyone can benefit from with your water heater.

Turn Power Off

The first rule of thumb – safety is always first. Before doing any maintenance on your water heater, shut the power off at the service panel. Leaking water can possible seep into carpets, flooring, baseboards and walls of your home or office. If this is not treated right away, it will even start to flow throughout the entire structure.

Check Every 3 Months

Maintaining your water heater is the secret. Once every 3 months, drain one gallon of water from the tank. If you have hard water, do this every month to reduce sediment collecting at the bottom of the tank.  

Inspections and Replacements

Another key tip that could potentially save you some dough is to have a water heater technician inspect your water heater once every 2 years. Don’t forget that every 5 years, it is best to replace the anode rod by a certified service technician.
