With summer in full swing and the heat and festivities that come with this season upon us, (though in limited capacity presumably with the quarantine restrictions) there are many home maintenance services that a home or property owner needs to consider from seasonality perspective.
For one, if you own a pool, a pool cleaning service may be one of the popular ones you look into and maybe a lawn mowing service to keep your front and backyard looking kept. But there are a few home maintenance services that are vastly overlooked during this time of the year and that is gutter cleaning, repair and maintenance.
This is something that typically gets overlooked as a necessity to keeping your home looking presentable because it isn’t until there is a break to the system as a whole that this garners any attention from the homeowner. Gutter washing and sanitizing is so important because a clogged and dirty roof duct can lead to overflowing and flooding. Having to deal with a flooded basement or home landscape is a homeowner’s nightmare.
The reason a call to your local gutter cleaning company during the summer months is so crucial is with the imminent fall months so close by and the onset of foliage and fallen leaves, this will only lead to overflowing gutters, filled to the brim with things like leaves, twigs, and organic debris. The last thing you want is for rodents and pests to create nesting grounds within your gutter systems before a heavy rainfall.
So the next time you think to have some home repair work done because it’s the summer time, think twice and consider hiring a full stack gutter services company.

If you have a Frigidaire french door refrigerator (stainless steel) and are experiencing issues with its ice maker, we may have a few tips for you. Maybe a certain component of your ice maker is not producing the ice that you need or maybe the component is not filling with water properly. Nevertheless, it is important to check which component of the ice maker may be causing the issues. It could be the lower portion in the chest freezer or the upper portion of the machine. Or it can be both. Answer the following checklist to see what the issue may be with your appliance.
To troubleshoot a few of the potential issues, answer the following:
If you check above and the only question you answered yes to is the last one, then you should know that many people on the internet order parts on places like amazon but the fact of the matter is, there is a reason people can get parts from amazon at such a low cost compared to those of authorized parts sellers.
There are counterfeit products on the market and there is no way for you as the end buyer to know which parts are authorized and not. The safest bet is to purchase these parts from any authorized seller such as at your local appliance repair shop. This ensures you are getting 100% quality parts and you can also call them to trouble shoot your issue and if the part you purchase does not work out, you can return it. You will also probably have warranty on the part you purchased if the company is legitimate.

With the shelter in place announced a few months ago, it may seem like the number of dishes you need to wash in a day has tripled overnight. While some like myself, have opted for the disposable plates and utensils route, some others have opted instead for the admirable and chosen to put their dishwasher into overdrive.
For these folks, there are a few tips that we recommend to keep their dishwasher in tip top shape for as long as possible, further decreasing the odds of having to make that long dreaded dishwasher repair service call to their local appliance repair shop.
Below are three tips to prolong the service life of your dishwasher:
1.Rinse your dishes before a wash cycle
This one seems pretty self-explanatory and basic but is so important. Hence, why we name it the number one tip in the list. This may even have been a tip that your mother engrained in your brain since a very young age. And with good reason. This greatly can affect the quality of your dishwasher in the long run.
However, it seems with today’s culture of now, there are immediate responses expected from everything from food delivery services to medical care. This has embedded a culture of laziness in which the temptation to put a dirty dish directly into the dishwasher is high, and so many do so, knowing that this can damage the appliance.
Loading dirty dishes in the dishwasher forces the appliance to work in overdrive and clean solid food and greasy reside from the dishes. This can lead to clogged drains, can dirty the inside components of your appliance and can also affect future washes by redistributing food residue into these subsequent washes. A simple wash before loading is all that it takes to prevent these things from happening to your dishwasher.
2. Run it regularly
Using your dishwasher regularly ensures that your appliance is free from excess buildup. The more you run it, the higher chances that whatever food build up or debris was caught inside the machine is washed away.
Though regular washes are imperative to the service life of your appliance, performing a deep clean of the inside of your appliance will, in the end, be the difference between an appliance that lasts less than 10 years and those that last more than 15 years. See below tip.
3. Perform a deep clean at least once a month
Once a month may seem like a lot. But trust on this one. Performing a deep clean frequently can greatly increase the efficiency of your dishwasher for years to come. Some popular at home cleaning agents, due to their acidity include lemonade powder, white vinegar, or lemon juice.
The parts of the appliance that need to be thoroughly cleaned are:
