Dryer

Dryer lint build up is the leading cause of dryer failures, and it often causes drying times to increase dramatically. Lint build up is also responsible for thousands of house fires a year. 

We Check/Replace your dryer vent ducting, replace it with a rigid or semi-rigid aluminum vent (White vinyl ducts no longer meet building codes and is flammable).

We also check/replace you dryer belts and rollers as rubber components need regular replacing due to consistent exposure to the high temperatures inside of dryers.

In addition we clean & lube bearings and other mechanical moving parts to maintain reliable & quiet operation and extend the life of your unit.

Washing Machine

We Check/Replace washer water fill hoses for cracks, blisters, corroded fittings and leaks. Cracks are a sign of aging and a breakdown of the rubber. Blisters signal a rupture in the inner lining of the hose, which means the hose may burst at any time. Corroded fittings mean the hose has leaked or is leaking now. If you don't replace the hose, you may find the corroded fitting is virtually impossible to remove from the faucet when you need to remove it. We will replace the hoses if they have any of these conditions. (Washer water fill hoses generally need to be replaced every few years, regardless of whether there is a visible defect.)

We check that the washer is level and sitting on a well-supported sub-floor. A leading cause of washer failure and customer complaints is a washer that bangs around unbalanced for many loads.

We check to be sure no water is dripping into the washer when it's turned off. If water is dripping in, even just a little, it's a sign the water inlet valve is defective and needs to be replaced.


Dishwasher

If your dishes aren't getting as clean as they used to, there's probably not enough water getting into the machine. This is usually caused by a broken or worn out water inlet valve. These valves, need replacing every few years, depending on water conditions. 

Inspect and clean your dishwasher with special cleaning agents to remove hard water, mold & bacteria buildup.

Repair/Replace broken and rusted dishwasher racks.

Clean/Replace your dishwasher filter. 

Clean your dishwasher spray arms. 

Refrigerator/Freezer

Clean the drain pan underneath the refrigerator that collects water

Clean the refrigerator cooling fan and the condenser coils.

Check the door seals to be sure they are sealing properly against the frame of the refrigerator/freezer. If they are torn, or don't seal properly, the refrigerator or freezer may not cool properly. This problem is worse when the weather is warmer and more humid. Clean the gaskets and frame with warm soapy water so they don't stick to the frame.

Inspect the back wall of the freezer for any frost build up. It's not normal to have any frost on the back wall or floor. The presence of frost is normally an indication the unit has a problem.

If you have a built-in ice/water filter, replace the filter approximately every six months.

If you don't have a water filter, and you find your ice tastes bad and/or smells funny, we can install a "taste and odor" water filter on the incoming water supply line.

If you don't have an icemaker, consider installing one now. Many people don't realize that virtually all refrigerators are set up to easily accept an add-on icemaker. Many refrigerators have a tag inside the freezer at the back that gives a kit number indicating exactly what kind of icemaker will fit in that refrigerator.

Air Conditioner

In preparation for the cooling season, clean the condenser coils. Check and remove wasp or bees nests inside the unit.  Clean any dirt or lint build up in the bottom of the air conditioner, and oil the motor.

Clean or replace the air conditioner filter. Depending on the air quality this may need to be done monthly throughout the cooling season. 

Range/Stove/Oven

Remove and clean range knobs with a non-abrasive cleaner. Replace any broken, or illegible knobs to make your range look new again.

Most ovens have an interior light. Oftentimes, the bulb has been burned out for so long you may not even realize that you have one.

If your oven broiler pan is missing, or if it has gotten so soiled you can't clean it anymore, we'll replace it,

Clean your oven control panel and porcelain stovetop or glass range/oven control panel.

Drip pans and bowls serve multiple functions for a range. They serve to catch food and spills, they also help radiate heat back at the pan for better efficiency, and they protect you from accidentally touching internal components. It's important never to cover them with aluminum foil. Many electric ranges short out due to the aluminum making a short circuit at the burner. And, the foil will cover the oven vent usually found at one of the burners. Clean the drip pans if they cannot be cleaned, we'll replace them.

Microwave

Clean the inside of your microwave. Food particles and splatters absorb some of the microwave energy while the unit is operating and may cause burns and other damage to the microwave. 

Because microwave ovens have solid-state circuitry inside, they're susceptible to damage from voltage spikes caused by lightning, etc. We recommend you plug your microwave into an appropriate surge suppressor to protect the circuitry.
