As the mounds of snow and ice melt on the sidewalk, a similar cleansing takes place inside our homes. There’s just something about spring time that makes us want to open our windows, let the fresh air in, and make sure the home is clean and in good working order. It’s revitalizing, just like spring itself.
There’s actually reciprocity between cleaning your home and maintaining your appliances: Cleaning actually helps your appliances work better, while ensuring that your appliances work properly gives you the same restorative feeling you get from cleaning your home.
Here are a few ways that cleaning your home and managing to keep your appliances in good shape will help you feel like your home is a comfortable and orderly space, while ensuring your appliances work properly.
How Cleaning the Home Can Help Your Appliances
Reducing the amount of dust in your home pre-emptively reduces the amount of dust clogging the filter in your air conditioner, and impacts other appliances too. You’ll never be able to eliminate all the dust in your home, or totally prevent your A/C’s air filter from absorbing some, but the fewer dust particles stuck in your filter, the better. It’s a good idea to clean your A/C’s air filter every 30 days or so, and more often if you have pets.
You also want to keep dust and debris away from the refrigerator coils located at the back of your fridge, or at the bottom. It’s easy to clean them and important too, since coils that are excessively clogged with dirt can cause a compressor failure which is expensive to fix. Just use a vacuum with a brush extension and suck up the cobwebs or whatever dirt is back there.
Your washer and dryer are also adversely impacted by dust — you must occasionally clean out behind the dryer every few months, because if dust, dirt, lint and even spilled detergent accumulate back there, not only does it affect the appliance’s performance, it fosters mould and can even cause a house fire.
