Appliance Care Hacks

Washing machines

In order for your washing machine to stay working longer, you need to use less detergent, many experts specializing in laundry services recommend. If you are using too much detergent it will create build up inside the machine and your pump is at risk of going bad faster. You should not overload the washer, therefore you need to stick to the loads that do not overflow your washing machine. Large loads can cause the suspension and cabinet to weaken. One more tip is to clean your washer regularly as various sediments can build up inside the tubing and hoses. You can use over the counter products found in many department stores for that purpose.

Dryers

To keep your drying machine in good running condition you need to start with the lint screens, they have to be clean at all times. Clogged screens can slower the airflow and be a fire hazard if too much lint accumulates. Over time the overall performance will decrease if you don’t spend time cleaning out lint screen after a few cycles or as needed. It really depends on the volume of laundry you are drying. You should clean the vents as often as each year or every other year. The external vent can have some buildup that can create a fire because of the hot air and lack of air passage through the vent. You can use a powerful vacuum cleaner in blow mode or call an expert who can do it professionally for you and take care of more of your air duct vents inside your home in one setting. In some cases, the build-up caused fires inside the appliance or burn your clothes inside one. Overloading a dryer is also not a good thing. Overloading the dryer machine causes a lack of airflow and stresses the machine parts. Use only as much laundry onside each unit as instructed or typically three fourth of the basket.

Dishwashers

The most common cause for a dishwasher is clogged drainage that causes overflow of water inside the machine. With time the pipes and filters get clogged with food leftovers and dishwasher detergent. A lot of people do not realize you have to pre-treat your dishes before loading the dishwasher by rinsing dishes inside the sink before they make it to the dishwasher. Clean your dishwasher once in a while like clockwork. Clean and wipe the inside of your dishwasher with a cleaning product. In extreme cases when your dishwasher needs repair y should you consider hiring certified repairmen who will not overcharge you for your repair? And keep in mind that during holidays broken dishwasher is not an emergency so be ready to do your dishes manually for a day or so if it breaks during holidays like New Year or  Xmas.

Refrigerators

The fridges in your home need enough air around them, so it’s not a good idea to put your refrigerator in a hot place as many people do like a garage. You should avoid piling up things around your fridge. Many technicians have confirmed this tip from years of experience. You should always check to make sure the rubber seal that goes around the door remains intact and doesn’t allow for any leaks. In case the rubber seal is damaged – it will make the fridge work a lot harder. Another piece of advice is to keep the condenser coil clean at all times. It should be cleaned at least once a year with a vacuum or proper brush. This will ensure the long life of your appliance. In case you need a specialist we have professionals working around the Los Angeles area and other cities around the US.

Air Conditioners

Air Conditioning and heater care is important, especially if you live in a hot climate like California. During those hot summer days or cold winter nights, you want to make sure your HVAC unit works like a clock. Our technical experts in ventilation and heating would agree with that 100%. To keep your air conditioner running smoothly you need to change the filter once a month. If you go on a summer vacation, it’s advised to keep the AC running and set the thermostat to 78 degrees Fahrenheit. During winter months it’s advised to keep the thermostat at 68 degrees.

If you follow these tips for your appliance care, all of your devices should have a long happy life for you and your family to enjoy.
