Every month, we share easy tasks you can do to keep your Port Angeles home in tip-top shape all year long. So here are a few tasks you can take on in November!
Maintain Large Appliances
Appliances are a big long-term investment! That’s why it’s important to take good care of them all year long. Your refrigerator is a great place to start. Accumulating dust can make your fridge cooling system less efficient.
To prevent trouble, regularly pull the fridge away from the wall and clean the condenser coils with a vacuum cleaner. It’s also a good idea to dust and clean the front lower grille. This five minute task can add years of service to your refrigerator!
Clean The Oven & Stove Drip Pans
Next move on to your stove. It’s another appliance that needs a good regular cleaning to keep it working well. Many ovens have a self cleaning feature that will do the hard work for you.
The only problem? It can take a while to run the cleaning feature and it usually smells pretty bad while it’s running. Save this task for a nice day and open up the windows to keep it well ventilated. Check your stove manual for instructions and take a few minutes to clean the burners too.
Have Problem Trees Trimmed
Cold weather has arrived on the Olympic Peninsula. Have you noticed any large branches hanging over onto your roof? Get them trimmed as soon as possible. A good ice storm can cause branches to break onto your roof leading to more damage and insurance claims.
