Lilburn Laundry Done without Water Damaging Mishaps with Proper Inspections of the Appliance
Regular Maintenance of a Washing Machine in a Lilburn Home Helps Avoid a Water Loss
Experiencing a malfunctioning washing machine in your Lilburn home can be a bit of a nightmare, considering how much water it can put out into your home all at once. Regular maintenance done to the machine can help you avoid this problem and save your money on the cleanup that it would involve.
When you do experience a water damage emergency in your Lilburn home because of your washing machine, our staff at SERVPRO can help take care of the situation and get your home dry again. We work promptly to avoid additional damage, such as the growth of mold.
The first thing you can do to keep your washer working great is to check the water hoses periodically for any signs of weakness or wear and tear. If you find any blistering or cracks, the hose should be replaced. Any damage like this can cause a burst or a leak, and costly flood damage to your home. If this has happened to you, SERVPRO techs have the tools and skills to help you out. It is recommended by both manufacturers to replace your hose every five years. For a higher quality hose, choose stainless steel.
Do not overload your machine. Follow the instructions in the owner’s manual for the right loading sizes. Loads that are oversized throw the machine off balance which can lead to problems. You should also keep the machine level. It is not normal for your washer to shake the walls and floor of your laundry room. If the machine does not have all its legs on the floor and is exactly level, it might rock back and forth and vigorously vibrate. Most machines have adjustable legs at least in the back of the machine if you need to make adjustments to make the machine level.
Using the right amount of detergent is also helpful. No matter what it says on the detergent itself, follow the recommendations from the manufacturer of the machine. If you have soft water, you need to lower the amount of soap used. It is also common for detergent residue to build up inside the tub of your washing machine. Therefore, you need to use a cleaner once a month to keep your washing machine free of odor-causing residue.
