After your house and your car, your appliances are often the largest investments you make. For that reason, it’s important that you keep them in good shape for as long as you can.
For many homeowners, this seems like a boring responsibility, but it needn’t be. With a few simple maintenance practices, you can delay the inevitable appliance repair service from your Salt Lake City technician. Here are a few tips from All Pro Appliance Service, Inc. to get you started.
Clean the AC filter
You know how important your AC is in staying comfortable at home as well as how much it needs your care to work efficiently. One of the easy ways to make sure your AC functions well is by keeping the filter clean.
Every two or four weeks, remove the front panel of your AC and vacuum the filter to remove any dirt and grime that may be present.
Don’t overload the washing machine
Sure, you want to save time and water, but overloading your washer and dryer will end up costing you much more than you think.
Cramming clothes into your equipment can damage the motors, belts and other parts of your washer and dryer. Ultimately, the damage can be so severe that you need to replace the machine.
Keep your dishwasher clean
If you’ve noticed that your dishwasher isn’t getting the dishes clean like it used to, then it’s very likely that you have a food-filled filter. That’s why water can’t effectively move to the spray arms to clean all the dishes.
To solve the problem, just pull out the lower rack, remove the filter and vacuum it to clean the screen. The entire process takes a few minutes.
Keeping your appliances in good condition needs not be complicated or costly. Often, it is those few simple habits done in a few minutes that make the greatest difference.
