Water Heater Maintenance
We here at SERVPRO Claremont / Montclair wanted to discuss a few water heater maintenance tips with you. You will see by how you and your entire family can benefit from them. 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 possibly seep into the carpets, flooring, baseboards and walls of your home or office. If not treated right away, it will even start to flow throughout the entire structure.
Maintaining 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.
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 every five years, it is best to replace the anode rod by a certified service technician.
