Are you Maintaining your Major Appliances?
It so easy to neglect hoses and hook-ups for your appliances especially when you are busy with work and day to day living, but a little preventive maintenance can help you avoid a major crisis.
Are you aware that your washer and dryer are a likely source for flood or fire in your home?
Corroded washer hoses or dry old hoses can lead to major flooding by splitting or cracking. Unfortunately, these hidden, inconspicuous hoses can cause a major flood in your home if neglected. Regardless of which washer hoses to choose, it is good to inspect them yearly and replace every three to five years.
Dryer vents that are not cleaned and maintained are a serious fire hazard. Dryer vents should be inspected and cleaned at least once a year because they accumulate highly flammable lint recommends Tim Smith of American Chimney Sweeps. According to the National Fire Protection Agency, more than 15,000 home fires began due to dryer vent lint in 2010.
