Spring Cleaning?

While you are spring cleaning, don’t forget to take the dryer apart and clean out all the lint that gets past the lint screen. You would be surprised at the amount of lint that gets past, and over the winter we use our dryer a lot so it accumulates pretty fast. Dryers work better when they are cleaned out and your peace of mind, knowing that the lint isn’t going to catch fire and burn your house down, is a good motivator.

Also dust off the coils on the back of your refrigerator if you have a model that has the coils in the back (most of the new ones are enclosed in the cabinet so you don’t have to worry about them). When the dust builds up on the coils the refrigerator doesn’t cool properly and this can cause the refrigerator to overheat. Taking a few minutes to do this can save you money down the road.
