Water tanks undergo a lot of wear and tear over their lifetime. As a result, they can become dirty, corroded, clogged, or leaky and need to be cleaned every few years. You should consider hiring a water tank cleaning specialist for the job if you are not equipped with the knowledge or equipment required to do it yourself.
This blog post will show you how they go about cleaning your tank so that you know what to expect before they arrive at your property.
Step 1: Preparation For Water Tank Cleaning
The first step of the process is the preparation of your water tank cleaning. Professionals will obtain all the needed details to come up with the best approach to cleaning your tank. They will most likely ask for the type of water tank you have, the size of the tank, and how long it has been since your last cleaning. This ensures that their approach is customized to work with your specific needs.
In addition, Professionals may also need access to electricity or natural gas at the site if there isn’t already a power in place near the tank location. If this poses an issue, consult with them on alternative solutions such as temporarily shutting off utilities nearby until their services are complete.
During this period, all concerns, questions, preparation, and use of utilities should be discussed to ensure that you are on the same page with their process.
Step 2: Choosing Products to Clean Your Tank
Once all your concerns have been addressed, the next step is choosing the cleaning product for your tank. Professionals will use the answers to their initial questions about your tank and will choose a product that is compatible with it.
However, don’t be concerned since the products used are not harmful to the environment or your health. Professionals have years of experience in the field and can confidently offer you their recommendations.
Oftentimes, professionals can also even offer organic and natural products to ensure that your tank is both clean and safe.
Step 3: Professionals Will Arrive at Your Location
Once all the necessary preparations have been made, Professionals will arrive at your location to clean your tank.
To ensure the process of cleaning goes smoothly, take any debris such as logs, scattered toys, pet food bowls, plant pots, etc., and move them away from the tank. This will make it easier for Professionals to clean your water tank without any interruptions or complications.
Step 4: Your Water Tank Will Be Drained
Once you’re all set, the professionals will start by draining your water tank. All the water inside your tank will be removed. This ensures that all debris is extracted from the tank before it can be cleaned.
Step 5: Debris and Dirt Will Be Removed
After the water has been cleared, all remaining debris, such as leaves, twigs, or any type of dirt, will be removed with a vacuum. This step is crucial to ensure a smooth cleaning process since the presence of debris might interfere with other steps.
Step 6: Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Water Tank
Once all debris has been removed, Professionals will start to clean your water tank. They’ll use the products they selected earlier and apply them evenly on the surface of the tank with a paintbrush or pressure washer.
This is just one simple step in their process that ensures maximum effectiveness while minimizing any chance for cross-contamination between different surfaces inside your tank.
They’ll scrub down all sides of your tank as well as the surface, ensuring that all dirt and grime are removed.
They’ll use a high-powered water pressure to rinse off any residue from their cleaning process before it starts drying inside your tank, which could cause an unpleasant odor or, worse, rusting.
Once done, they’ll let your tank dry before filling it up with new, clean, and fresh water!
