Tips On Maintaining Your Household Appliances

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in .

With the amount of water damage or fire damage that your household appliances can cause, enacting preventative measures is always a good idea! Regular maintenance of your appliances will help you to avoid the worst-case scenario and even extend their lifespans. However, maintaining a lot of appliances is a big job. You should be familiar with the most crucial maintenance tasks for each appliance. Below, we’ll give you our expert tips on maintaining some of the most popular appliances for your household!

Refrigerators: Keep The Coils Clean

Refrigerators are by far the most sensitive household appliances out there. Malfunctioning could lead to your food going rotten, not to mention the water damage that can occur! Keeping your refrigerator coils clean is a crucial step in this process. They control how cold your fridge can get, and can lead to serious malfunctions in the worst-case scenario! Dusting the coils on a weekly basis will help to prevent both problems.

Stovetops: Clean Up Messes After Use

Stovetops can cause both fire and gas-related problems if you don’t perform regular maintenance! Every time you make a big meal using the burners, make sure you clean the area around them afterward with soap and water. Failure to do so can prevent burners from turning on at all. Depending on what kind of grime is down there, it can even cause a fire hazard! Scrubbing them down will sharply decrease the likelihood of fire accidents.

Washing Machine: Wipe Down The Insides After Use

Did you know that washing machines are one of the most common areas for mold growth? Preventing this common allergen from thriving is as simple as cleaning the inside of your machine. All you need to do is take a warm washcloth and wipe down the interior and exterior door handle, plus the entire inside area. This will prevent any mold growth issues or clogs that could cause an overflow.

Dryer: Clean Out The Lint Trap

If you haven’t examined your dryer’s lint trap in a while, now is the time to do so! Allowing this trap to get too full can cause create a serious fire hazard. Not only is lint incredibly flammable, but it can spread fast if there’s an excess. After every use of the dryer, scrape the lint out of the trap and rinse it with a warm washcloth. This can even help improve your dryer’s efficiency!

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
