Summer is not around the corner yet, but at any time of the year, it is never too early to start your home appliance cleaning. If you check your home appliances properly, you will realize that they could be harboring not just a lot of dirt, but also bacteria, and other microorganisms. This unwanted stuff can compromise the working efficiency of your appliances and increase appliance repair costs. It is, therefore, necessary to keep them at bay all of the time. With this in mind here are a few tips and ideas:
If you visit any local appliance repair company, you will find that the fridge is the one that needs to be maintained and therefore can cost the most to run if you are not careful. Its regular use in the home makes it a good candidate for food chunks and other dirt. To reduce the cost of repair, you should clean it using white vinegar and water all of the time. Place a box of baking soda in the inside to keep the smells down.
You should check your dishwater filters for debris. Also make sure there are no dirt, food chunks and other unwanted bugs in the bottom of the dishwater. To clean the unit, place one cup of white vinegar on the upper rack and then run the unit without anything else in it. Sprinkle baking soda solution after cleaning to eliminate the vinegar smell and to freshen the dishwasher.
Scrub front loaders using 3 cups of baking soda and half a cup of white vinegar, and top loaders with ¼ cup of white vinegar. After washing, turn on the hot water to rinse off the cleaning agents. After cleaning, leave the door open to keep the unit cleaner and fresh for longer. By doing this routine, it will also allow the unit to dry and prevent molds from growing.
Your oven is another home appliance that could be harboring a lot of dirt, bacteria, and other microorganisms. Just use a mixture of water and white vinegar to clean the inside of your oven. Running the self-cleaning option is not recommended unless you have a major overflow in your oven.
If you put all these tips and ideas into practice, but your home appliances still develop problems, you need to contact a local appliance repair contractor to fix the problems. Choose a professional contractor because they have the experience in refrigerator repair, washer repair, dryer repair, washing machine repair, dishwasher repair, and servicing of any home appliance you may have.
