Tip: Prep work to swap water heaters

Whether you or a pro replaces the water heater, schedule in some time to clean and paint the area after the old tank is removed and before the new one is installed. Use a shop vacuum to remove dust and dirt and give the walls and area a quick coat of paint if needed.
