Why Hire Colorado’s Best Appliance Repair?
A lot of people understand the importance of taking their car into the shop for regular maintenance. They get that their oil needs to be changed, the transmission fluid needs to be flushed and that there are times when the air filter and /or wiper blades need to be swapped out.
Yet what most people don’t realize is that there are a number of benefits that come with having routine maintenance done on their washer and dryer, as well.
When you hire Colorado’s Best Appliance Repair to help you with routine maintenance, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that a trained expert has given your washer and dryer a once over.
Parts that need to be lubricated will be lubricated, bolts and/or screws that need to be tightened will be tightened, and parts that look as if they’re on the brink of failure can be replaced before they have a chance to stop working.
Routine maintenance can help ward off an expensive, emergency repair call. It can also ensure that your systems work properly for many years to come.
Things you can do on your own
If your someone who tends to forget to take the clothes out of your washer and put them into your dryer, you may want to consider setting an alarm before you start a load. When wet clothes sit in the drum of your washer for too long, over time, this can have a negative impact on the functionality of your washer. Not to mention, it can cause internal parts to rust. Just say no to letting wet clothes sit in your washer, on a regular basis, for extended periods of time.
When you overload your washer (regardless as to whether it’s a top-load or front-loading system), the added pressure can put additional strain on the system during the wash cycle and the spin cycle. Ultimately, this can cause parts to wear out more quickly and it can lead to a system imbalance. If you’re wondering if you’re overloading, it’s always best to assume you are. Split the load in two.
Clean the lint trap in your dryer
One of the easiest things you can do to ensure your dryer has a long life involves cleaning the lint out of the trap after each load. This will also reduce the risk that your dryer catches on fire, since built-up lint is a fire hazard.
Have the dryer vent tube cleaned annually
In addition to cleaning the lint trap, you’ll want to have the vent tube professionally cleaned on an annual basis. This will help ensure your dryer has maximum air flow and maximum heat.
