Snehta’s Newsletter Gives Helpful Advice to Homeowners
By Kimberly Martin on 7 February 2014
Atlanta — Snetha’s weekly newsletter is an excellent opportunity for anyone to learn the tips and tools of the trade when it comes to home and yard maintenance. Featuring articles that range from step-by-step suggestions for installing things such as an appliances or landscape features to a list of tips to prepare for certain weather conditions or pest invasions, the newsletter can be an invaluable guide to home maintenance! With the “polar vortex” attacking the country and keeping everyone indoors, Snehta’s previous newsletter focused on protecting your home from the effects of a winter storm. This week, with most people still cooped up in their homes to avoid the cold, the newsletter featured articles on maintaining in-home appliances!
The first article is about two of the most common in-home appliances: washers and dryers. Keeping an eye on washers and dryers can help prevent your energy bill from getting too pricey, and routine maintenance helps keep those machines running! In “Eight Easy Washer & Dryer Maintenance Tips,” Snehta gives homeowners some of the easiest tips and tricks to keep those machines in prime operating condition:
Clean dryer lint screens.
You probably already do this after every load (we hope). Clean screens mean the dryer doesn’t have to work as hard, which means you’ll use less electricity to dry your clothes.
Twice a Year…
Clean the lint filter.
Use soap and water and a brush—but not a steel wool or heavy brush—to remove built-up soap and fabric softener.
Many more simple, easy-to-perform tips are available in the article, so be sure to check it out here!
Another article included in Snehta’s newsletter features kitchen appliances! Everyone knows that when a major kitchen appliance fails, repairs or replacements will be costly. But by following Snehta’s article, “Six Easy Kitchen Appliance Maintenance Tips,” homeowners can learn methods that will keep appliances like refrigerators kicking for another few years:
Clean the refrigerator coils.
Coils cool and condense the refrigerant, and when they’re clogged with dirt and dust, they can’t efficiently release heat. That means your compressor works harder and longer than it was designed to. A simple cleaning once a year—more often if you have shedding pets—should prevent this problem. […] A coil cleaning brush, available at most appliance part stores, will do a thorough job and will easily pay for itself.
