To help prevent some of the most common problems that your appliances experience, it may be beneficial to keep them clean as possible. This helps in a number of ways, but most importantly, you’ll be able to have your appliances working less and they remain effective over the course of their lifetime. Many homeowners are unaware of the best ways to clean their appliances, so it is important to understand the most effective methods.
Inside and out, the refrigerator is one of the appliances that can endure the most damage due to dust and dirt buildup, spills, and old foods. This means it’s time to put in some extra work to clean it completely. While you should really clean the inside by removing drawers and trays to really get in there and keep it clean, you may also want to clean the condenser coils on the back of the fridge. Too much dust or dirt can cause the fridge to work less effectively.
Make sure you clean the inside and exterior completely, but also focus on the areas that hold the dish soap and release the water. If there is buildup, it can cause problems while the dishwasher is working. This could create an overworked dishwasher, causing a break down much sooner than expected and requiring repairs.
While many of us try to be as careful as possible when using the oven, there are times when it is just not possible and food can begin to coat the bottom. Some ovens have their own self-cleaning cycle to make things easier on you. However, if not, you have to really get in and clean completely to not only remove smells, but also get off the food that has started to build up on the bottom. If it impacts the effectiveness of the oven, cleaning should be done often.
