Easy appliance projects to do while isolating

Suddenly, we all find ourselves with a lot of time to spend at home and running out of ideas on how to spend that time.

What can you do that’s easy, and can even help out around your home? Well, you can take on some easy appliance projects to do while isolating.

Practicing social distancing can take a toll on our moods, one of the best remedies for this is finding something useful to keep ourselves busy.

So, from us at Maydone thanks for doing your part and here are some easy projects to keep you occupied and maybe give your appliances a boost! 

Give your fridge a makeover clean 

Stocking up is super important for having your home ready for isolation, cleaning your fridge should be at the top of this list, beacuse it will make storing your food way easier.

Arrange food by types, and expiration dates, that way you won’t waste anything. Organizing also helps your fridge work with more energy efficiency. 

Get rid of frost in your freezer 

Scrapping the ice from the freezer is going to: give you more space for food, improve freezing, energy spending, prevent freeze bites on your food and help it stay good for longer, so basically all the things you want your freezer to do, especially when you are in isolation mode.

All you need to do is empty the freezer, scrape the ice or let it melt and organize your food again.

Clean your small appliances 

Use hot water, soap or maybe a mix of vinegar and lemon, whatever suits you and get to work.

Because there are plenty of everyday things we forget to regularly, try to clean what you wouldn’t usually. A gentle simple cloth clean up should suffice. You can also run your dishwasher through an empty cycle with vinegar. 

Pay attention to your washer and dryer

A simple empty cycle will clean your washing machine drum, or maybe you can fix the position to avoid a “dancing washer”, you could also clean the filters or water pumps.

For your dryer, you can clean the drum by spraying some vinegar water mix on the inside and wiping down with a microfiber cloth, that way you get rid of softener or drying sheet residue, and don’t forget to clean the lint filter or trap.

Change air filters  

If you have them available or can get them safely delivered this one might be a good isolation project to embark on. It’s really simple to do and can provide better air quality in the coming weeks you’ll have to spend at home.

We are still here for you!

If you find your appliances need a professional hand give us a call.

Maydone is still working and helping out, keeping things in your home running so that isolation is easier to handle!

  • This is the second time I’ve used their services, and both time was helped by Alex. He was incredibly thorough, punctual and incredibly diligent. He went above and beyond and even fixed a wobbly door under my sink. It’s always a pleasure to find a reliable and efficient service, and I would absolutely use Alex in the future!

  • Working in a veterinary clinic - we understandably go through a lot of laundry. Our washer was out of commission and within a very short period of time, Igor not only diagnosed the problem but had it fixed. He was efficient and easy to work with.

  • When it comes to repairs you want professional, experienced contractors and on top of the problem you have. Maydone has it all. We worked with Alex (we highly recommend you ask for him) who was on time, polite, does the job, very neat and professional.

  • Contacted them late in the day and got a response first thing in the morning. Techinicians came the following day, showed up on time and repaired it quickly. Wouldn't hesitate to contact them again in the future.
