Kitchen Maintenance

By Room

The kitchen is often called the heart of the home. You would not want the heart of your home to be unsafe, unclean, or inefficient. To prevent issues that could cause your kitchen any of these problems, a regular maintenance schedule should be observed.

Two places the kitchen could become unsafe are the range hood and the garbage disposal. The range hood must be cleaned underneath and the air filter must be removed and washed, as well. The vent to the outside must be checked for grease build-up, a fire hazard, and cleaned on a regular basis. The garbage disposal can become dangerous if it jams up due to food build up. Unclogging the disposal can be a dangerous job. The Homestar Group can plan regular maintenance to prevent build up.

If the counters in the kitchen are laminate, they can start to peel or fall victim to extensive damage such as nicks, burns, and scratches. This damage may be repairable as long as the mending is not put off too long. With a maintenance plan from The Homestar Group, any such blemish can be rectified.

The cabinets in the kitchen, after extensive use, can become dangerous or just plain annoying. A cabinet door that is not hung properly may swing open at any time, possibly hitting someone. Even if they don’t swing open, kitchen cabinets can annoy by squeaking. These are all adjustments that The Homestar Group can make.

Appliances are often the most expensive items in a house. Continuing maintenance on the refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher can save major repair or replacement bills down the road. Cleaning the condenser coils, inspecting the door gaskets and checking that your unit is level can extend the life of your refrigerator. Inspecting the connections in a dishwasher can save money and hassle by preventing a flooding situation in your kitchen.
