The holidays are a special time of the year where a lot of cooking and baking takes place. With multiple holidays celebrated during this month, the kitchen is bound to be overused. By preparing your appliances now, you can avoid having them malfunction when you need them most.
De-Clutter Your Kitchen
Having too many items in your kitchen can cause massive disorganization and a lack of space later on. Take the time to go through your pantry, cabinets, and refrigerator, throwing out anything that is expired or that won’t be used in the near future. Forgetting to clean out your refrigerator before the holidays can result in a lack of storage space during a party, as well as low-efficiency cooling due to overcrowding.
Clean Your Appliances
Preparing for a holiday dinner or party can be a messy couple of hours. Before you make a mess of your kitchen, give it a good cleaning. Pay extra attention to the refrigerator, oven, stovetop, microwave, dishwasher, and countertops. Avoiding a pre-cleaning can make the final cleanup process twice as long as it should be. Old spills and stains can also be harder to clean if they’ve sat for longer periods of time.
Have Your Appliances Serviced
The last thing you want is to be halfway through preparing for a feast and an appliance breaks down. This could cause the dinner to be ruined, or have it miss a crucial piece of food that everyone is looking forward to. Before the holidays come too close, have your appliances serviced by a professional. Taking care of this in advance could save your holiday from disaster.
Preparing your kitchen for the holidays can make the celebrations a lot less stressful. Don’t roll the dice by not having your appliances serviced if they’ve been malfunctioning or inefficient lately. Contact the experts at Tri-City Heating and Cooling before the holidays get too close!
