With the rising cost of living many of us are finding ways to save money. Here are a few ways that you can save energy cost and repairs on the appliances around the home. I have spent many years in the cleaning business. I was surprised that people were not aware of the benefits when you keep things clean that aren't part of the normal routine. I would clean the homes rotating the cleaning routine on a regular basis. This allowed me to keep all areas of the home clean making my customers happy.
In the following pages you will see pictures of my appliances that are dirty. That is why I decided to post this particular instructable. We are in the middle of remolding and everything has been neglected so the dirt actually shows up in the pictures. We live in a dry dusty area and I usually dust and deep clean every week to keep the dust out. This will give you an idea how fast the filters get dirty and need to be changed. I cleaned all of the filters a month ago. I normally clean them every week.
I did a lot of research in the early years of my cleaning business and spoke with repairmen about how to reduce the repairs on appliances. I figured if anyone knew how to keep them in good working order they would. I always got the same answer. Keep them clean and ( oiled if needed!) Clean the filters on a monthly basis or according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Dust is an enemy to the electrical parts of appliances. Dust will cause the connections to short out and need replacing.
