Leaks are the typical problems with water heaters. As your water heater gets older, water rusts the tank and creates small cracks.

From General Electric fridges to Kitchen aid dishwashers, a few easy actions can help extend the lifespan of your appliance. Whether your appliance is new or you've had it for a while, read through the manual, watch a tutorial, or get professional advice to know how to best clean each appliance.
