Read on for range hood spring cleaning tips from Appliance Rescue Service – the best appliance repair company in Dallas:

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Chances are, you can find everything you need for range hood cleaning in your pantry. Grab the following supplies before beginning your project:

·     Large stock pot

·     Dish soap

·     Baking soda

·     Vinegar or Ammonia

·     Scratchless scrubbing sponge

Step 2: Create Your Cleaning Mixture

Begin by boiling water in your large stock pot, filling the pot ¾ of the way. Once water is boiling, pour in just a tiny dollop of dish soap. You want the water to boil and bubble, but not to boil over during the range hood cleaning process. Next, slowly pour in ½ cup baking soda until mixture is fizzing.

Step 3: Clean the Filter

Once the pot of water is fizzing, slowly lower the range hood filter into the solution. Watch it eat away at the grease and grime on your filter. Rotate the filter in the solution until all sides are clean. Is your filter too big for the pot? Lay it flat in a jelly roll pan and pour the solution over it to clean your range hood filter.

Step 4: Clean the Range Hood

Dip your sponge in the remaining solution and gently scrub the exterior of your range hood until the grime and grit is gone. If you feel like the solution is not doing a good enough job, add a touch of vinegar or ammonia to the sponge and continue scrubbing.

Hopefully this simple cleaning method will help you keep your range hood in perfect working order! Should you ever need range hood repair in Dallas, Appliance Rescue Service is here to help!

Throughout this spring season, Appliance Rescue Service – the best appliance repair company in Dallas, Texas - will provide a series of appliance spring cleaning tips, designed to extend the life of your investment! So today, let's start with the refrigerator.

How often do you clean your refrigerator? Are you cleaning it properly? Follow these steps below to ensure everything continues to run smoothly and to avoid costly refrigerator repairs.

Step 1: Clean the Compressor Coils

This first step is one that many people skip completely! Twice a year, your refrigerator’s compressor coils – or evaporators as some manufacturers call them – need a good wipe down. Invest in a good coil brush (sold at most appliance stores) and quickly clear the coils of any debris or dust that might have floated in. Clearing away the gunk allows for the coils to run at their maximum efficiency.

Step 2: Throw Out Old Food & Condiments

When was the last time you used that fish sauce sitting in the door of your refrigerator? If you’re like most Americans, you tend to keep food items in the refrigerator long past their expiration. Give your refrigerator a good clean out and help it run more efficiently. Overfilling the refrigerator with food can lead to Dallas refrigerator repair because an overstuffed refrigerator runs overtime to keep the food cold.

Step 3: Wipe it Down

While wiping down the exterior of yoru refrigerator along with the shelves inside is an essential part of appliance spring cleaning, pay special attention to the gaskets. Sometimes food and spills can make the door gaskets sticky, cuasing them to breakdown and not seal properly.
