Keeping your home clean and sparkly is not the easiest task. Keeping your appliances and the things that can’t be seen in a perfect condition is even harder. Even if you are prepared for the upcoming season and you’ve already cleaned and checked most parts of your home, there’s still plenty to do. You’ll be surprised.

In order to do it all, you’d better have a calendar(write the notes on your computer or just make a list). A big house takes a lot of time to clean and maintain. 

But do not be scared. Most of these things you can pretty much do on your own. If you don’t have experience in a certain area and you don’t want to risk breaking something, call a professional handyman company to help you. 

 

1. Every month

- The fire extinguisher - in order to know if you can be safe if there is a fire, make sure to know if you need a new one. This is a really easy task see if the gauge shows the proper pressure and if there are visible leaks and tears. Another thing that you might find a bit silly but is very important - know where you keep it and leave that area open and with easy access to it.

- The kitchen sink disposal - if you need it to work properly then you need to take regular care. The easiest way to clean the disposal is to fill an ice tray with vinegar and let it freeze. Then run it through this appliance - it will freshen it and will also sharpen the blades.

- The HVAC filters - it is recommended to change the filters every month. It is pretty much up to you and your family - do you have small children? Dogs or cats? If you do, then it’s best to change them every month. Still, if they are not that dirty, inspect them the next month.

2. Every quarter

- The smoke detectors - it is really easy to check if they work - they usually have a “test” button. If the alarm goes off, then you’ve nothing to worry about. If it doesn’t then just change the batteries or clean the battery terminal. If it still doesn’t work then you need to buy new smoke detectors.

- The guest bathrooms - if you have a guest house or a guest room, then maybe you don’t use them as often as you use your bathroom. From time to time, go and flush the toilet and let the water run for a while. This will prevent any buildup and grime.

- The garage door - to prevent any accidents, you need to test the auto-reverse from time to time. Place a 2x4 piece of wood exactly where the door would close. It should automatically go back up a second or so after the door touches the wood.

3. Every six months

- Deep cleaning - I don’t mean just the vacuum and the curtains. Take the time to clean every part of the house perfectly. Go into the basement and up in the attic. You can also make your family participate and you’ll be done in no time.

- The refrigerator coils - it's good to clean them every six months. And do not worry - it’s not a difficult task. Just use the vacuum. The cleaner they are the less energy the fridge will use in order to cool off the food inside. So you’ll both have a cleaner appliance and a lower electrical bill.

- The water heater - you need to check the pressure relief valve. This prevents from corrosion and any other type of buildup and protects against leaks. It also helps the water heater run more efficiently.

In the spring

- Clean the gutters from leaves and other things that have buildup there through the winter and the autumn.

- Check the aesthetic look of your home - maybe your exterior paint is peeling? Are there any holes in the bricks? Take the time to observe the condition of your house and fix the problems.

- Check to see if any tree branches are touching electrical lines. Do we even need to explain why?   

- Go up to the roof and see if there are any broken tiles and holes. And fix them as soon as possible. You don’t want those summer rains to ruin your attic.

In the summer

- Go around the house and check the plumbing for leaks.  

- See if the patio needs any work done - usually it just needs a good wash.

- Take care of the insects - ants, spiders, mosquitoes - spray the rooms with a solution and make sure all doors close tightly.

- Clean the dryer vent and check the exhaust - the air from it should be fresh. Also, check for blockages as much as you can.

- Go through your garage and throw out everything you don’t need. Then clean the place thoroughly and enjoy it!

In the autumn

- In order for your heating system to do its job, make sure all windows and doors have no leaks. You shouldn’t store stuff on top of the heating vents, too.

- If you have a chimney, get it cleaned for the winter.

- Observe the pavement and the driveway for any holes and cracks. Once you fix them you’ll notice the great difference it makes.

- Go to the store and buy all the equipment you’ll need for the winter. Items like shovels that will help you get through the winter easier.

In the winter

- Don’t let icicles grow because they are dangerous and can harm a person. They are also heavy and can damage your home.

- Check all locks and deadbolts and replace anything that doesn’t work. Also, tighten handles and knobs.

- Go to the basement and clean every part of it. Because most people use it as storage space they don’t take the time to throw away the clutter and clean it thoroughly.

All of these tasks are easy to do and won’t take up much of your time. Once you finish with the maintenance for the month or season you will enjoy your home knowing everything is fixed.

Fridges are probably the most important household appliances modern homes can’t be imagined without. They’re also quite expensive and not as easy to maintain as most people think. The improper use, the lack of the regular cleanings, the excessive workload, the outside conditions the fridge has to operate in and common minor functioning failures that aren’t treated on time may lead to significant breakdowns and, consequently, repairing or replacing costs.  

As it’s not only a clogged kitchen sink or a broken dishwasher that may flood your kitchen, but also the fridge’s faulty operation that makes it leak, it’s quite important to be proactive and prevent refrigerator water leaks by cleaning your appliances regularly and defrosting even the frost free or frost control fridges to avoid faulty water lines and sudden leaks.

But, if those actually happen, you need to take immediate actions to determine the culprit of the leak and figure out the way to stop it. To do that, you need to learn what may make your refrigerator leak, which parts of the appliance you need to examine to figure out where the water comes from, and how to fix the issue.

So, here’re top 3 reasons why your refrigerator may leak and which steps have to be taken to bring your fridge back to order in each of those cases.

1. The defrost drain is blocked

What happens

When you notice a leak in your fridge, the defrost drain is the first place you need to check. When tiny food crumbs and other small particles accumulate in that drain, they may clog its hose, cause the buildup of the ice that prevents the water condensate and other excessive moisture from draining and your refrigerator from being able to control the frost or defrost on its own depending on the model of your appliance.

Eventually, it will leak. The more time you take to fix the issue, the more water your fridge will leak and the more probable the major breakdown will get.

How to fix

The solution is quite obvious and doesn’t require any advanced skills or knowledge to apply. You just need to unplug your refrigerator, find the defrost drain’s opening at the back wall of the fridge (not the freezer), use a small kitchen funnel or a kettle to run hot water through the drain and relieve it from the ice blockage.

After that, you’ll have to clean out the debris that was the main cause of the problem. Thus, grab a thin drain cleaning snake to get rid of the clog. If you don’t have one, you may easily use a long wire or a straightened metal hanger instead. Clean both from the inside and the back of the fridge.

But, if you don’t have the pipe snake or if you just can’t locate the blockage, don’t leave the drain issue not handled and ask a plumber or an appliance repair pro to finish the task. Otherwise, you’ll have to deal with frequent leaks and fridge malfunctions.

2. Misaligned water filter

What happens

When the water filter wasn’t installed properly and it’s misaligned in its housing, it might leak water. In addition to that, the water might leak from the water filter compartment of the fridge if the filter’s housing is broken or cracked. Broken filters cause leaks as well.

How to fix

Unplug the fridge, undo the filter and reinstall it, making sure that the filter and its housing are properly aligned. If that doesn’t do the job, get your fridge inspected and its filter/filter’s housing replaced.

3. Water leaking from under the fridge – frozen or broken water supply line

What happens

This often happens to the models with the built-in cold water and ice makers. The reason for this problem is quite similar to the previous one – the debris clog or the ice buildup that interrupts the water line’s normal flow makes the water leak and influences the ice and cold water production.

How to fix

The first thing to do is to unplug the appliance, find the shut-off valve that is related to the refrigerator’s water line (it may be located behind the fridge, under the kitchen sink or in the basement right underneath the fridge).

Then, you’ll have to inspect plastic pipes to determine if there’re any frozen water clogs in them. If you notice any, you’ll just need to leave your refrigerator to defrost for a few hours and test the fridge. If the ice clog was the ultimate culprit of the leak, the fridge should be alright after it’s all melted and gone. Finally, check the drain pan for any damages just in case.

However, if it’s not the ice that clogged the water line or if there’re any cracks in the actual pipes, you’ll have to consult with an expert or even get them cleaned/replaced by an appliance repair pro not to damage the system.
