These simple tips can help you avoid repairs and keep your kitchen and laundry equipment running longer. Maintenance and repairs should be performed as soon as necessary. This “the sooner the better” practice helps prevent more damage and keeps repair costs low. At least once every 6 months, thoroughly inspect your home and garden to identify items that need to be repaired.
Preventive maintenance aims to detect and solve problems before they occur. It is usually carried out in the form of periodic inspections, which are usually carried out several times a year. Major appliances, such as dishwashers, refrigerators, washers and dryers, are expensive to repair and even more expensive to replace. Preventive maintenance of appliances will include inspection, cleaning and repair, if necessary.
While it may seem like a daunting task for new homeowners, with the right repair tools and regular maintenance, not only will you prevent appliances from breaking down, but you'll also keep your home looking its best.
