Viking Barbecue RepairWith the spring setting in, finally, and summer just around the corner you might already be barbecuing as you read this. (Keep your eye on the clock, don’t want to char those hot dogs.) Still, it is always worth highlighting the importance of safety when it comes to cooking, possibly even more so when the elements and nearby playing children are a concern.

While our experts can help you with barbecue repair and grill maintenance we cannot ensure that you are safe. So we thought would offer you a list of important safety reminders:

  • Own a Fire Extinguisher?: Should your flames lose control a fire extinguisher is the quickest and safest way to get a fire under control. If you do not have one get one!
  • Be Mindful of Bacteria: Food is a magnet for bacteria. Any temperature above freezing and before 165 degrees is a breeding ground for the stuff. Keep food refrigerated until you are ready to cook!
  • Smoke: Be careful with smoke. Do not stand directly downwind of the stuff. Even more importantly be sure to keep younger kids and babies away from the stuff entirely.
  • Read the Manual: We understand, this is no fun. However, reading your barbecue’s manual is the most surefire way to troubleshoot issues that might come along and to ensure it’s safest possible use.
  • Check the Gas: Before using your grill check to make sure the gas is connected properly and there is nothing blocking the clear passage of gas to your grill. Do not assume things are fine “because they were yesterday.” A strong breeze, a wily rodent, or any number of other factors could have changed the situation.

Viking Grill RepairMaintenance can go a long way in allowing an appliance to have a long life. If you want to get your money’s worth on any household appliance doing the little jobs that ensure everything works properly is vital. This is even more important when an appliance has been dormant for a while.

Your grill or barbecue is probably just about due for the kind of maintenance that we are talking about. Before you move into the grill’s heavy use season you should make sure you go over this checklist of important barbecue maintenance steps:

  • Clean the Burner and Tubes: Turn off and detach the propane tank. Clean any tubes and the burner with a wet rag before toweling the clean surfaces dry. Clean out each gas port with a toothpick.
  • Wash the Grill: Washing old grease off of the entire barbecue is important. Make sure that tubes are properly connected after you give the whole appliance an aggressive scrubbing with a wire brush.
  • Clean the Cooking Grates: While you can burn some of the grease off your cooking grate you will want to assure a thorough clean by scrubbing it down with your wire brush.
  • Check the Gas: Make sure your gas tank has sufficient gas for the season. You should also lookout for any gas tanks that are older and rusting out. These should be recycled at a propane supplier immediately.

If anything else comes up requiring grill repair on any of the biggest brand in the world(Lynx, Viking, Bosch, General Electric, etc.) give us a call!

Bosch DishwasherA dishwasher can be an incredibly helpful appliance to add to your kitchen’s arsenal. While the biggest and best appliance manufacturers have not yet invented a dishwasher that can load and unload itself the benefits of having one are many. Even with the light level of pre-rinsing that is vital to your dishwasher’s effectiveness they can save you time and the kind of rough dishpan hands people spent years trying to shake.

Still, some find themselves complaining about that brief period of rinsing. Perhaps the issue is that people do not know how far their efforts to rinse of plates and silverware should go prior to washing. The fact is a brief rinse can go a long way in ensuring that pieces of food do not much up the gears that allow your dishwasher to run. Still there are other factors that contribute to your dishwasher functioning properly. Namely, overloading the machine can make the work of the dishwasher ineffective.

If you feel your rinsing and loading are both on point but your dishwasher continues to give you issues we can help. Our dishwasher repair experts have experience with every major brand of dishwasher. Even better, we have the replacement parts needed for a quick and painless repair.

Stove RepairMany of us use our stoves and ovens practically every day. The frequency with which we use the oven or stove can give us a pretty cavalier attitude about the appliance. While having confidence in your stove and your ability use it are okay you should also be aware of the safety risks posed by it. To improve that awareness we suggest an oven safety check before each use.

If you do each of these things every time you use your oven you will be safer and, more importantly, more aware:

  • Check for Gas: If you have a gas stove the risk of leaks is an important consideration. Be sure to be incredibly aware of any odors that might be gas. If you find a leak call for oven repair immediately.
  • Make Sure Nothing Is In the Oven: Ovens should never be used for storage. Just in case, check inside the oven before you start preheating.
  • Check for Debris On the Stove Top: As the oven heats up food particles and grease on the stove can heat up and cause small fires or hazards that may burn you.
  • Position the Oven Rack: Getting the oven rack in the right position will help avoid burns later in the cooking process.

Dryer RepairsEmptying the lint trap is one of the easiest things you can do to make your dryer more efficient. As the lint trap fills up the dryer becomes less able to properly vent air and the entire process of drying your clothes slows significantly. By cleaning the filter every time you use the dryer you will keep things humming along perfectly, you will also make things much safer.

Dryer fires are responsible for thousands of house fires a year. That small fire can become exacerbated quickly and rage out of control. Suddenly major property damage and the risk of physical harm are very real risks. The lint collected in the filter is highly combustible. When combined with the heat being generated by your dryer thing can escalate very quickly. All of this can be avoided if you simply clear the lint with some regularity.

If you suspect that your dryer’s lint filter is not working effectively it should be a cause for immediate action. Our washer dryer repair experts can surely identify the issue and make repairs to ensure thing run smoothly and safely once again.

Washer-Dryer RepairsMost appliances come with their fair share of safety concerns. Whether you are worried about electrical fires or toxic gas leaks each and every major appliance in your home has its fair share of possible trouble. Luckily if you consider those issues and make considerations towards avoiding them you can generally keep your home, yourself, and your family safe.

The first step when it comes to ensuring your appliances are safe is to install them precisely as instructed. While some people avoid reading the directions that come with an appliance at all costs you would be wise to consult with them not only for the installation process but for daily use as well. Not following these instructions can be dangerous and it can also negate any warranties associated with these expensive appliances. This is a reason that those averse to reading and following instructions might consider professional installation services.

One of the benefits of our Nassau County appliance repair experts is if an improper installation is creating issues with your appliance we can identify and fix the issue.
