How do you clean a water heater screen?

A common household brush and a vacuum cleaner can be used to clean the Flame Arrestor or Filter Screen. If you want to clean the FVIR system, you have to turn the water heater off. Allow the burner to cool down for 15 minutes. The Filter Screen needs to be located and removed.
