Is your fridge not cooling properly?

If your fridge isn't cooling very well, the problem easily could be the condenser coils.

The fix is a  really easy one. First you locate where your coils are. They are likely under or behind the fridge. Make sure you can easily access them wherever they are. After that unplug the fridge, so that you don't accidentally shock yourself. Use your coil brush to wiggle lose any dirt, dust, hair, or other particles, and vaccuum up anything else that remains.

If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to give us a call!

Looking sharp!

Did you know that garbage disposal blades dull with time? It makes them less effective at chopping up food bits.

One of the easiest ways to keep them sharp is to put ice down the disposal while its running.

This sharpens the blades and keeps them working great!

For an added bonus, throw some lemon down there to keep it smelling fresh!

Things to do before the repairman arrives

There are a few things that you should keep in mind before the repairman arrives at your house to fix your appliance. It will make life easier for both you and for the repairman.

We tend to be pretty good about our appointments, but sometimes things run over or under time. Its a good idea to have some extra time before and after the appointment set aside in case this happens.

Know what's wrong
Be able to communicate how your appliance isn't working, and how it may be on the fritz. If you have the make and model of the appliance before you call us, we can be even more prepared.

Watch where you're going!
We might need to get some equipment in and out, and maybe even the appliance. Make sure there is a cleared path for us to get around.

Down, boy!
Make sure your animals are put away. it is safer for you, us, and them. We want to make sure there aren't any accidents!

Its a good idea to ask how much repairs might cost. If you ask us before hand, we would be happy to give you an estimate.
