Did you blink and miss March Break? Even with your party days behind you, it can feel like you lost some time this spring. Though our children may have started the agonizing countdown as early as January, it takes no time at all before the week-long vacation is over. Moving the clocks forward for Daylight Saving Time was no help, either. While some of us are now sporting healthy tans as souvenirs from a week in the sun, some of us opted for a staycation welcoming others to our home and are now left with faulty appliances.
Our fridges, ovens, and furnaces don’t get the week off like our kids, and often times they end up working overtime during the March Break as we welcome friends and family from out of town into our homes. Though hosting is a much more economical option than taking the kids to an all-inclusive resort, it’s not without its shortcomings.
By welcoming friends and family to stay with us, we add stress to our lives and our homes. Family has a way of making even the most laid-back individual want to pull out their hair, and it’s only made worse when family invades our personal space. As we host get-togethers, cook family dinners, and make up the guest room, we end up relying on household appliances in ways we don’t normally.
Entertaining changes our habits. The most recent snow storm, though less brutal than predicated initially, was accompanied with a sudden drop in temperatures that had many of us jacking our thermostats to keep our guests comfortable. We can overwork our stoves and ovens to make sure there’s enough to go around at dinner, and we can end up loading up our washers and dryers to keep everything clean.
Our household appliances are usually hardy enough to handle the added strain guests can put on them, but older or inefficient machines can encounter problems as they’re overworked. We want to remind our readers that we’ll address any issues that may have arrived after your guests’ departure. With a simple phone call, you can arrange for a quick and affordable visit from one of our repair technicians. Our team is trained to handle anything from simple maintenance inspections to emergency part replacements for every major appliance.
Whether it’s March Break, Christmas Eve, or just a simple Tuesday, we’re available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to offer expert repairs. While most of our calls come from frantic, middle of the night crises, we can’t stress enough the importance of regular maintenance and preventative check-ups, so don’t hesitate to call whenever you need our professional help. A quick call before a special week like the Spring Break can ensure your fridge, stove, oven, and furnace are ready to greet your guests properly.
Hosting can be stressful enough. Don’t add to your list of frustrations by letting your appliances rule the roost. Keep these machines in line by giving us a call. We’re trained, experienced, and equipped with the latest tools to make short work of any appliance feeling under the weather after a long and wild March Break.
