Cleaning water tanks is essential

Water tanks should be clean and hygienic to ensure that homeowners, building owners and commercial establishments can store water that does not contain anything harmful to one’s health.

Water tank cleaning is generally often overlooked. While it is comparatively easy to clean small house tanks, cleaning bigger ones may need a little more expertise. It is, thus, best to hire a water tank cleaning service provider.

There are many maintenance companies in the UAE that offer a wide range of services including the cleaning of water tanks.

Water tank cleaning usually involves inspecting the tank to determine contamination and the extent of services required, and cleaning the tank’s ceiling, walls and flooring using a high pressure water jet. After further cleaning with municipality-approved disinfectants, the water is tested for total dissolved solids (TDS) and pH to determine purity. Once the service is completed, companies usually give a post-cleaning report detailing the different tasks rendered including providing before and after photos. Firms may also suggest to tank owners ways to properly drain water.

When selecting a cleaning company, it is best to compare services and costs, and go for one that is authorised by the municipality and highly recommended by satisfied customers.

Handy Hints
• Water tanks must be cleaned at least once a year
• Service includes inspecting, disinfecting, testing
• Look for an authorised and reputed cleaning firm
