Water Heater Woes in West Fargo

At SERVPRO® of Fargo we respond to water damage emergencies in West Fargo often and some of these involve water heater failure. Water is invasive and will seep into and under anything it can when left standing and unmitigated for too long. In many cases water damage can be prevented, and the Institute for Business and Home Safety offers these water heater maintenance tips to protect your home from water damage:

  • Inspect your anode rod every two years, or every year once the warranty has expired, to determine if it needs to be replaced.
  • Flush water heater tanks every six months to remove sediment by attaching a garden hose to the valve at the base. For safety, first turn off the power and run hot water until it is cool.
  • Get an annual inspection from a plumbing professional, including the shut-off valve and all piping. Signs of broken valves and loose or wet joints and rust are a sign that more severe damage is coming.
