Maintenance Tips

When it comes to maintenance, it can be a real uphill battle. The natural state of things is decline, after all, so it can be like a game of whack a mole to keep everything in your home in working order. And, yet, we must. We must take it upon ourselves to make sure everything is in working order so that we can live the comfortable life we’re used to and that we deserve. It can be an exhausting process, but it simply must be done. However, it’s not as bad as it may seem. With just a little bit of vigilance, you can make things a whole lot easier on yourself. Here are some suggestions.

First and foremost, let’s talk about preventative measures. When it comes to things like air conditioners, computers, etc., anything that has you worrying about dust, you’ll need to invest in some air duster. This isn’t like a traditional duster, the kind you would use to clean the display case where your Things Remembered personalized mugs are on display. Rather, this kind of duster is used to clean out electronics. You see, electronics are bad for getting dust all over the insides because, to avoid over heating, most electronics are full of holes. The open design allows for fans to help keep the inner workings cool, but it allows dust in freely and doesn’t exactly expel it. So, giving the machine a good air dusting once in awhile will keep it working better for longer. With air conditioners, you’ll want to clean the dust filter already in place to keep the path free for air to come through. However, you’ll also want to dust the grill in the front of the machine for the same reason. That, and it might be blowing dust all over en masse otherwise.

Another problem area for maintenance is moisture. We tend to deal with water damage where wood is concerned, and the solution to this one is fairly simple. We spill things constantly. Even when we don’t make any mistakes to cause spills, simply bathing can create moisture where there shouldn’t be. Such is the nature of being wet and water, itself. Legitimately, all you have to do is dry your floors. Some water damage speaks to an underlying problem like a leaky roof or a busted pipe, but many times it’s simply the result of negligence and laziness on our part. Clean up spills, and you will have significantly less to worry about later.
