Are you fed up with the fact that appliances last less and less? Do your appliances give more problems than expected and do they break with certain regularity? Do you carry out a correct cleaning and maintenance of electrical appliances? If not, perhaps the reason is more obvious and easier to solve than you think. Therefore, in this post we give you some tips on cleaning and maintenance of appliances with Appliance Repair Dacor that will help you prevent their deterioration.

1. Never use an appliance without reading the manual

Reading the user manual or instructions, in addition to teaching you how to use the appliance correctly, will help you to know its limits and those aspects that deteriorate its maintenance and useful life.

These are the most useful and practical appliance maintenance tips to make them last longer. If you follow them, you will surely notice an immediate improvement or over time of these devices. This is the end of this post on appliance maintenance tips, but not without first commenting on some important aspects to take into account.

2. Pay attention to alarms and warnings

Modern appliances currently have all kinds of acoustic alarms and visual signals that warn you if the appliance suffers a problem. That is why, to maintain your appliances, you will always have to be attentive to these types of warnings and take the appropriate measures as soon as possible to reverse the problem and not increase it with what this entails (greater breakage, greater economic cost, more time to its correction and worst solution).

3. Battery care

Many household appliances work with rechargeable batteries that increase their operating time between use and use, but when used for a long time they end up breaking down, losing their ability to retain the charge and not fulfilling their function, in many cases due to misuse.

4. Cleaning and treatments against lime-scale in the water

In our country there are areas with high levels of lime in the water that cause electrical appliances that heat the water for their operation to suffer from lime-scale accumulation problems (makes the resistances that heat the water work worse and worse), such as, for example kettles, steam cleaners, washing machines and steam irons. The best option for the prevention and maintenance of this type of appliance is to use specific lime removers for each appliance.

5. Change and clean the filters regularly

Many appliances and household appliances have filters. For these types of appliances to work correctly and last longer, it is essential to change or clean the filters from time to time.

6. Don’t overuse your appliances

If you overload your appliances with too much work, as for example it may be the case of excessive use of the washing machine in terms of the number of washes per day and the kilos of clothes in each load, it is likely that in the end you will end up having to call a specialist in repair washing machines or buy a new one.

7. Use accessories to improve your efficiency

The accessories and complements of electrical appliances in addition to being cheap products can be tremendously useful to facilitate the work of these appliances and thus extend their durability.

8. Beware of ice

The ice accumulated in both freezers and refrigerators is the main enemy of this type of appliance, since it will make them work less efficiently, since they will use more energy to maintain the temperature.

9. Watch the seals and rubber gaskets on the doors of your appliances

This is a fundamental element for the proper operation and proper maintenance of electrical appliances with doors and that must have a hermetic closure, such as ovens, washing machines and refrigerators. We hope this post has been illustrative of how to properly maintain appliances in your business, home or anywhere else.
