Don't Insist on Using An Appliance Without Getting It Fixed

Expert Ideas for a Healthier Home

A lot of people use their appliance without considering if it is still in mint condition. Most of us assume that if it works, there is nothing to worry about. The truth is, that’s when the danger comes in.

There are a lot of horror stories like house burning or kids getting hurt because of faulty appliance. It is our responsibility to check and have our appliance cleaned and repaired. This will not only save you money in the long run (because you don’t have to replace it right away), but it can save lives too! To give you an idea how dangerous it is not to fix your appliance, here’s a quick list to help you.

Air Conditioner

Do you know that your air conditioner’s filter can house bacteria which can start respiratory illness? This is why it is important that you schedule a maintenance for your air conditioner. This shouldn’t cost you much.

Light Fixture

When your light bulb is kept in a closed space such as your closet, combustion might happen because of the lack of air circulation. Thus, it is necessary to check and change your light fixture regularly.

Coffee Maker

You might think that a coffee maker does not pose a threat to anyone. However, if you do not clean it, mould can grow and it can be hazardous to one’s health.

Microwave

Apart from checking its wiring and other electronic parts, any appliance used for food preparation must be well-maintained and cleaned. Always make it a point to thoroughly remove food crumbs. Not doing so can cause fire. In addition, if your microwave has a faulty wiring and you left food inside, it can automatically turn on and can burst into flames.

Blender

We all know that a blender has sharp blades which move extremely fast. To avoid injuries, always check if the blades are still intact. If you think it’s a little bit loose, don’t think twice about having it repaired.  

Freezer

We’ve encountered a lot of homeowners using faulty freezers, specifically with cracked lining. If this happens, your freezer will have a hard time maintaining the proper food temperature. As a result, it will work overtime and your food might not be safe for consumption.

Clothes Dryer

Some of us do not realize the importance of clearing the vents of our clothes dryer. Now, if you constantly ignore it, the debris can block the dryer and it will need to work twice as much. There are 2 things to be scared of when you don’t maintain your clothes dryer. One, your energy bill will definitely shoot up. Two, your clothes dryer might overheat and can press more danger to your home.

Washing Machine

One of the most obvious dangers of a washing machine is that it uses water that can potentially make contact with the electricity. Thus, you need to ensure that the cord is always dry and that the power outlet is high enough.

Just a friendly reminder to avoid fixing damaged appliance on your own, most especially if you do not have the technical know-how. Instead of repairing your appliance, you might end up burning your entire home. This might sound a little bit exaggerated but reality is, it happens.
