In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the basic initial tenets of HVAC maintenance appointments that are vital for the long-term upkeep of your system. From basics like thermostat inspection and air filter changing to many others, there are several ways professional HVAC experts help keep your system in great shape throughout the year.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re happy to offer a wide range of HVAC tune up services for clients around Salt Lake City, ranging from heating repair to AC repair and more, covering every aspect of your system’s functionality. In this second part of our series, we’ll go over some additional key areas that our technicians will address during a typical HVAC maintenance appointment.

Refrigerant Levels

One crucial aspect of an HVAC system is its refrigerant levels. This is what helps ensure your home stays at the desired temperature by absorbing heat from inside and transferring it outside.

During a maintenance appointment, our technicians will check the refrigerant levels and make sure they are at the optimal level for your system to function efficiently. If there is a leak or low levels, we can refill or repair it to prevent any further issues.

Electrical Connections

Electrical connections within an HVAC system are also important to maintain. Our technicians will inspect all electrical connections and wiring to ensure they are clean and free from any damage or corrosion. Any issues can be addressed and repaired to prevent electrical malfunctions that could potentially lead to costly repairs.

For instance, loose electrical connections can cause faulty operation or even complete system failure. Our technicians will tighten and secure all connections, ensuring your HVAC system runs smoothly and safely.

Ductwork

The ductwork in your home is responsible for distributing hot or cold air from the HVAC system to each room. Any issues with the ductwork, such as leaks or blockages, can reduce the system’s efficiency and lead to higher energy bills.

During a maintenance appointment, our technicians will inspect the ductwork for any leaks or blockages and make necessary repairs to ensure proper air flow throughout your home.

Replacement of Worn Parts

One of the single most valuable parts of an HVAC maintenance appointment is the inspection of all moving and mechanical components. This includes belts, bearings, motors, and more. These parts wear down over time, which can lead to reduced efficiency or even system failure.

During a maintenance appointment, our technicians will inspect these components and replace any worn parts to ensure your system runs smoothly and efficiently. Taking care of these minor repairs now can save you from costly replacements down the line.

Regular HVAC maintenance appointments are crucial for keeping your system running at its best while preventing major malfunctions and breakdowns. At All Pro Appliance Service, we offer comprehensive and affordable HVAC tune up services to keep your system in top condition year-round. Contact us today to schedule a maintenance appointment and keep your home comfortable and energy-efficient.

There are several major components of your home where preventive maintenance will play an important role in long-term quality, and your HVAC system is one of the top examples. HVAC maintenance is vital for keeping your entire system in great shape and saving you money while staying comfortable in your home, and understanding the common elements included in such maintenance appointments can go a long way.

At All Pro Appliance, we’re here to help with a wide range of HVAC maintenance and repair needs for clients across Salt Lake City, including both air conditioner and furnace tune ups, repairs, replacements and more. In this two-part blog series, we’ll go over many of the key elements that are typically found during air conditioning maintenance appointments that you should be scheduling during the current spring season, helping you understand what will take place during these appointments and why these services are important on a yearly basis.

Basic Control Inspection

One of the first areas we’ll look at during an HVAC maintenance appointment is the basic control system. This includes both wiring and connections that are part of your system, which we’ll inspect for any potential issues or damage.

We’ll look at your thermostat, plus any remote control devices you use to manage your HVAC system. If there are any areas of concern here, we’ll make repairs or replacements as necessary.

Air Filter Replacement

Another vital element of an AC maintenance appointment is the air filter. This component is responsible for keeping debris and other contaminants out of your home’s air supply, and it must be replaced regularly to ensure this function is taking place effectively. We’ll show you how to do this on your own if you prefer, or we’ll handle it during the appointment for you.

Coil Cleaning

Your AC’s evaporator and condenser coils are another area of focus during maintenance, as they’re responsible for transferring heat between coolant and air. These can become dirty over time, which impedes their ability to do this effectively and can even lead to frozen coils. We’ll clean and inspect these components during the appointment.

Lubrication

Another possible task we’ll handle during AC maintenance is lubricating any moving parts or components within the system. This includes areas like bearings, motors and other related parts, which can wear down over time without proper lubrication.

For instance, a lack of lubrication can significantly increase the friction within your system, forcing it to work harder and potentially leading to costly repairs or replacements. With proper lubrication, these components will have their lifespan extended and keep you comfortable for longer periods of time.

In part two of our series, we’ll go over a few additional areas that are typically included in an air conditioner maintenance appointment, plus why these services are so vital. For more on this or any of our HVAC repair or maintenance services, speak to the staff at All Pro Appliance today. We’re here to keep your home comfortable and efficient throughout the year.

In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the basics on your refrigerator’s compressor, why it’s important, and some possible signs that it could be malfunctioning or having issues. Fridge compressors are the “heart” of the fridge, serving as the component that compresses gas to absorb heat and keep the fridge cold, and keeping them in proper working order at all times is important.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re happy to offer the very best appliance repair services you’ll find around Salt Lake City, including refrigerator repair of any kind. We’ve helped clients with a variety of fridge concerns, including compressor issues. While part one of our series went over basics of the compressor and signs of issues, today’s part two will look more closely at specific compressor issues that could be taking place, plus how to prevent them in the first place and what our team will do to remedy them.

Compressor Overload

Likely the most common refrigerator compressor problem is when it’s overloaded and stops working properly. This can cause temperature changes in both the fridge and freezer, including melting or freezing food that shouldn’t be.

Several factors might be causing this, from issues with the condenser fan or dirty coils to simple wear-and-tear on the compressor itself. In addition to affecting your groceries, an overloaded compressor will use more energy and increase your utility bills.

If this is the cause of your issue, our team will look to find the underlying reason for the overload. They will check areas like coils, fan, and thermostat to see if any components need repair or replacement.

Malfunctioning Parts

In other cases, one or more parts of the compressor may be malfunctioning and causing issues. Common culprits here include the start relay, overload protector, or capacitor. Again, our team will inspect all of these areas during a repair job to ensure their proper function.

This is one strong example of why appliance repair professionals are so valuable here. Mechanical issues in the compressor are very difficult to identify if you don’t have experience with them. Our team, on the other hand, has seen every potential compressor issue and will know exactly where to look for solutions.

Electrical Problems

Another possible cause of compressor issues is electrical problems. This could include shorts in the wiring or power supply, which can prevent the compressor from receiving the necessary amount of electricity to function correctly.

Our team will carefully examine all electrical components, including fuses and breakers, during repair jobs to ensure they are not contributing to any compressor issues.

Ventilation Issues

Finally, because compressors need to release the heat they generate when compressing gas, proper ventilation is key. If your fridge is not getting enough airflow or if the ventilation system is clogged with debris, the compressor could overheat and malfunction.

Our team will check for any ventilation issues and clean out any debris that may be blocking airflow to prevent future compressor problems.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we understand how important a functioning refrigerator is in your daily life. That’s why we offer prompt and reliable repair services for all types of fridge issues, including compressor problems. Don’t hesitate to contact us for this or any other appliance repair, HVAC repair or furnace tune up!

There are a few examples of home appliances where temperature problems could signal an issue that requires repair or replacement, and one such instance may involve the compressor on your refrigerator. Responsible for regulating temperature and a few other vital roles that keep this appliance working properly, the compressor can experience problems at times – and it becoming hot to the touch is often a sign that this is happening. 

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re here to help clients around Salt Lake City with all their appliance repair needs, including refrigerator repair and any other major appliance in your home. In this two-part blog series, we’ll discuss what a fridge compressor does and why it’s a problem if it’s malfunctioning, why overheating and certain other indicators are often signs of issues here, and what these issues may signal in terms of repair or replacement needs. 

Refrigerator Compressor Basics and Importance

For those who are just learning about appliance repair or don’t have much knowledge about how fridges and other major home appliances work, here’s a quick overview of what a compressor is and why it matters. The compressor is essentially the heart of your fridge – it’s what powers the entire system that keeps your food cold and fresh.

The primary role of the compressor is to compress refrigerant gas, which then absorbs heat from the air inside your fridge. This gas is then sent to the condenser, where it’s turned back into a liquid and the heat from inside your fridge is released outside. This process is what keeps your food cold and fresh.

Why a Malfunctioning Compressor is an Issue

Because the compressor is so vital to the functioning of your fridge, any issues with it can cause major problems. In most cases, when a refrigerator has a malfunctioning compressor, it will stop cooling properly – potentially leading to food spoilage and other issues.

If you notice that your fridge is not maintaining the proper temperature or if items inside are spoiling faster than normal, there’s a strong chance that the compressor is not working properly. In some cases, you may also hear loud noises coming from the fridge or feel excessive heat on the exterior of the appliance.

Overheating and Other Signs of Compressor Problems

As we’ve already noted here, perhaps the single most common sign of a compressor issue is when it starts to overheat. In addition, however, there are several other potential signs of compressor issues that homeowners should watch for:

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to have a professional appliance repair technician take a closer look. Part two of our series will go over some common causes for compressor issues and potential solutions that may be necessary. Stay tuned, and contact our team at All Pro Appliance Service for any appliance repair need!

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the key risks you’re taking if you skip seasonal maintenance for your HVAC system this fall. Basic fall maintenance is one of two yearly appointments that helps keep your furnace, AC and other important HVAC components in great shape, but skipping this appointment comes with a few major risks – both short-term and long-term. 

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re happy to offer AC and furnace repair and maintenance services among our numerous appliance solutions for clients around Salt Lake City and nearby areas. While part one of our series went over things like cost risks, warranty concerns and efficiency issues that can come with skipping fall HVAC maintenance, today will go over a few of the other problems you put your system at greater risk for by doing this. 

Family and Personal Safety

From a safety standpoint, any HVAC system that hasn’t been properly maintained comes with some risks. For instance, carbon monoxide (CO) leaks are a concern for any gas-based system, and proper maintenance is the top safeguard against this risk. 

There are also issues like electrical shorts, damaged fan blades or coils, and other potential safety hazards that may arise due to lack of maintenance. You’re not only risking your own safety by skipping fall HVAC maintenance, you’re also putting family members or tenants who live in the property at risk as well if you rent it out. 

System Longevity

When maintained properly, a quality heating and cooling system can last for decades – as long as 20 or even 25 years in some cases. However, when you skip fall maintenance and don’t take the proper steps to keep your system clean, lubricated and running efficiently, this number can drop significantly. 

Skipping basic annual tasks like changing filters and inspecting the furnace’s blower motor can turn small issues into major ones over time, eventually leading to an early failure or replacement need and significant costs.

Simple Comfort

Another area many don’t think about, but which is impacted by skipping fall HVAC maintenance? Your comfort. While you may save a few dollars in the short-term by doing so, you’re also putting yourself at risk of far less comfortable living spaces, particularly during colder winter months where heating performance is key for both your health and your quality of life.

Don’t take this kind of risk – contact our team at All Pro Appliance Service today to learn more about how we can help with all your fall HVAC maintenance needs. Whether you need minor tune-ups or complete HVAC installation, we have the solutions for you.

There’s a curious juxtaposition in the world of heating and air: While summer and winter months tend to be the most straining on your various HVAC components, the months in between are typically most ideal for servicing these components. And as we firmly enter fall season around Utah, it’s vital to be considering simple HVAC tune-ups this time of year.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re proud to offer a variety of AC and furnace repair services to clients in Salt Lake City and nearby areas, including comprehensive fall tune-ups to help remedy and issues that have arisen over the summer while also readying your system for the colder parts of the year. There are some key risks you’re taking if you don’t have your HVAC system serviced this fall – here are several across this two-part blog series, which will also serve as a way for us to detail the major benefits of fall tune-ups and why you should be sure to schedule one with our team.

Risk of Small Repairs Becoming Costly Issues

When issues arise anywhere in your HVAC system, they often start out small. For instance, maybe a minor issue has developed with your AC system over the summer that’s caused it to run less efficiently than normal. When this happens, you may notice slightly higher energy bills – but if addressed promptly, this might be the end of it and you’ll get back to normal efficiency levels.

However, if small issues like this are allowed to linger for months and go unaddressed, they may develop into much larger problems. This applies to both AC and furnace systems, and it can be costly – instead of a simple repair that costs a bit of money, you could now be facing major repairs or even full system replacements.

Warranty Problems

Another major reason to schedule fall HVAC tune-ups is to avoid warranty problems. Most major AC and furnace manufacturers require these services be performed at least once per year in order for your warranty to remain intact – if you fail to perform them, even just once, you may lose the entire warranty and have no recourse for issues that arise.

Energy Efficiency Decreases

During a fall tune-up, one of our primary goals is to ensure your HVAC system is operating at maximum energy efficiency. Over the summer, there may be small issues that develop here that will impact this significantly – and over a full season of running inefficiently, you could be talking about hundreds or even thousands in wasted energy.

But by having our pros check your system out and make any necessary adjustments, you’ll ensure you’re operating at peak efficiency all fall and into winter.

In part two of our series, we’ll go over some more of the risks you’re taking if you don’t schedule fall furnace service. For more on why fall tune-ups are so vital for your HVAC system, or to learn about any of our heating repair services, speak to the staff at All Pro Appliance Service today.

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some basic signs that there could be mice present in your home, and particularly in some of your appliances. Mice sometimes like to invade appliances because of their protected space, heat and even occasional food access, but some basic attention will help you spot this issue and remedy it quickly.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re here to offer a wide range of appliance repair services to clients around Salt Lake City, including everything from stove repair to dishwasher repair, washer repair and more. Today’s part two of our series will look at a few of the most common specific appliances mice like to hide out in, plus how to remove them and remedy any damage they’ve created – a process our team is happy to assist you with.

Dryer or Dryer Vent

Mice can often be found in dryers and dryer vents as well, and this can be a particular issue if they’ve burrowed too deeply into the vent system. The first thing to do is to locate the mice, and you can do this by looking for telltale signs like droppings on top of or behind the dryer. You may be able to hear a faint scratching sound if they’re inside, though this isn’t always possible. Once you’ve located them, it’s time to remove them.

The best way to get rid of any rodents including mice is to use a humane approach. You can use traps baited with food, and always remember to check the traps regularly so that no mouse remains in the trap for an extended period of time. Once you’ve removed them successfully, it’s important to inspect your dryer or vent system for any damage they might have done. If you’re unsure as to how extensive this damage might be, it’s always a good idea to call an appliance repair expert who can help you assess the situation.

Oven

Another common appliance that mice can sometimes try to make their home is an oven. This is a tricky one, as the heat of an oven may not be enough to deter them – and given the enclosed space, it’s a particularly appealing spot for them.

As with any kind of rodent problem, the first thing you’ll want to do is locate where they’re hiding. The most common place is in the back of an oven, but you may also find droppings or other signs around the outside. If they’re inside, it’s best to try and use traps baited with food to remove them humanely. Just remember to check the traps regularly – and as always, if you’re unsure how extensive any damage might be, we recommend calling our experts.

Washing Machine

While slightly less common than the other appliances mentioned, mice can and do often try to hide out in a washing machine. Again, the best way to detect them is to look for signs like droppings or strange scratching noises. Once you’ve located them, it’s time to remove them using traps baited with food, making sure to check the traps regularly until they’re all gone.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we can help you assess any damage the mice might have caused to your appliance – and if you need repairs, our team is always available to help. Don’t let rodents take up residence in your appliances; with the right attention and care, you can nip this issue in the bud quickly.

There are a few critters out there that can be a problem when it comes to certain appliances in your home, and mice are some of the top examples. Due to their protected spaces, heat and sometimes even their access to food, certain home appliances are attractive hiding spots for mice – but there are also some simple ways you can both keep them out and remedy any damage they may have caused.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re proud to offer a huge range of appliance repair and maintenance services to clients across Salt Lake City, including things like oven repair, dryer vent repair and more – both common areas where mice may look to nest if they’re not properly deterred or removed. This two-part blog series will go over everything you should know about mice in appliances – today’s part one will look at the various signs that mice are present somewhere in your home, while part two will go over how to remove them from certain specific appliances (and how to remedy any damage they caused, if necessary, a process our professionals are here to help with however needed).

Mice Droppings

One of the most common (and most obvious) signs that mice are present in your home is the presence of their droppings. Generally, you’ll find these near corners or in cupboards or drawers – anywhere they might lurk and be undisturbed as they search for food and nesting spots.

Mice droppings can range from a few millimeters to around 5mm in length, and will often be dark brown or black in color. It’s important to clean these up as soon as you see them – not only because of the potential health risks associated with rodents, but also because their presence may indicate a larger infestation, so it’s best to at least keep an eye out for other signs.

Noises

Another tell-tale sign that mice have made their way into your home are small, squeaking noises or scurrying sounds coming from walls or behind appliances. If these become loud enough, it could indicate a large infestation – and again, prompt action should be taken in order to contain the problem.

Strong Urine Smell

In other cases, the presence of mouse urine can be detected by a strong, pungent smell coming from behind certain appliances. This smell can range in severity and is generally indicative of an advanced infestation, meaning immediate action should be taken if you notice any suspicious odors like this.

Damaged Wiring

Finally, one other way to tell if mice have managed to find their way into your home is by looking for evidence of damaged wiring. Often, mice will gnaw on wires as a source of nutrients – and this can pose a huge risk when it comes to the safety of certain appliances or even worse, your entire home.

If you experience any issues with broken wiring in your appliance, it’s best to immediately call a professional for assistance – because not only can this pose safety risks, it can also cause your appliance to stop working altogether.

That concludes part one of our blog series about mice in appliances! For more information, stay tuned for part two, which will go over how to remove them from certain specific appliances (and how to remedy any damage they caused, if necessary). In the meantime, if you need any help with appliance repair in Salt Lake City, don’t hesitate to contact All Pro Appliance Service right away. We’re here to make sure all of your appliances are running properly and safely – no matter what might be lurking behind them!

In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the possible reasons why your freezer might be leaking water. This is never a desirable outcome, and there might be a few different culprits at play – and also a few different levels of severity depending on what the issue is.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re proud to offer numerous forms of HVAC and appliance repair, including freezer repair and assistance with numerous other fixtures in your home. While part one of our series went over things like poor food arrangement, drain pan cracks and drain hole congestion issues, today’s part two will look at some other possible causes of freezers leaking water, plus what you or our team will need to do about them.

You’re Using the Defrost Feature Too Often

While utilizing your freezer’s defrost feature can be great for keeping your appliance clean and running at its peak efficiency, overusing it could end up causing a leak. Defrosting too often might mean that you’re not giving the freezer enough time to adequately freeze the water in between uses.

If this is happening, part of the melted ice will likely overflow, resulting in puddles on the floor. This can be easily prevented by giving your freezer adequate time between uses of the defrost feature and not using it too often.

Temperature Control Malfunctions

In other cases, your freezer may be leaking water due to an issue with the temperature control settings. If this is happening, the thermostat might not be accurately sensing and regulating the temperature of the appliance, leading it to frost up and then defrost too often. This can also lead to a buildup of condensation that eventually finds its way out of your freezer’s door.

The good news is that this issue can be easily taken care of by making sure your temperature control settings are accurate. If the problem persists, it might be a sign of a larger issue and you should contact our team for further assistance and repair services.

Door Seal Damage

Finally, another potential reason why your freezer may be leaking water is due to damage to the door seal. If it’s broken, worn, or just in general need of a replacement, it won’t close properly and can lead to condensation buildup which eventually leaks out from the bottom of the door.

If this is happening, we usually suggest replacing the door seal as soon as possible to prevent further water damage. Fortunately, this is a simple and inexpensive repair that can be easily handled by our team of experienced technicians.

All Pro Appliance Service specializes in freezer repair and other related HVAC services, so if you’re ever in need of assistance due to water leaking from your freezer, don’t hesitate to contact us. We have the knowledge and expertise necessary to get your freezer working like new again in no time!

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some basics on spring maintenance for your home’s HVAC system and some of the most important areas that should be covered here. From professional upkeep to themes like your filter, your thermostat and more, there are several major parts of your HVAC system, both heating and cooling, that should be inspected and perhaps repaired this time of year.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re happy to offer Salt Lake City’s best air conditioning repair, heating services and other HVAC solutions to ensure you and your family are comfortable throughout the year. Today’s part two of our series will look at some further areas that should be covered during spring maintenance, whether on your own or with the help of our team wherever necessary.

Keeping Units Clean and Free of Debris

One simple aspect that often goes overlooked is the dirt, dust and debris inside the interior of your HVAC units. Over time, this can build up and cause the unit to become more inefficient and potentially lead to bigger problems down the road.

Make sure you take a look at both portions – heating and cooling – to make sure there’s no buildup around or inside any of the components. If you find that there is, call our technicians in order to make sure they’re cleared out properly and safely.

Checking Refrigerant Levels

When it comes to your cooling system in particular, one area we strongly recommend having a professional take a look at is refrigerant levels. This ensures that your unit is running at peak efficiency, and if there are any issues here, our technicians can give you a comprehensive analysis on what areas need to be looked into.

It’s also important to check for any signs of leaking refrigerant – this should never be handled by anyone other than a professional with the proper certifications.

Cleaning Vents and Registers

Especially if you’ve noticed buildups of dust and debris, taking the time to clean out vents and registers in your home can go a long way towards improved air quality and also efficiency. Make sure you use something like a vacuum cleaner hose or gentle cloth when doing this so that you don’t cause any damage to either portion.

Check for Leaks – And Insulate if Needed

Finally, one area many homeowners overlook is checking for leaks. This can go a long way towards improving your system’s efficiency, and if you find any major issues here, our team can help with insulation and other services as needed.

These are just a few of the areas that should be covered during spring HVAC maintenance in your home or business. Of course, the best way to ensure that your system is running in top condition is to have a professional inspect and repair any areas of concern. Reach out to All Pro Appliance Service today for all of your heating and air conditioning repair needs across Salt Lake City!

Spring is finally upon us after a long Utah winter, and homeowners around the state are often looking to ensure the quality of their HVAC system during this important transitional season. Some basic maintenance here allows you to address any issues that may have crept up during the winter, plus helps prepare the entire system for the warm season ahead.

At All Pro Appliance, we’re happy to provide robust heating and air conditioning repair and tune-up services for clients around Salt Lake City, including during this vital spring period. In this two-part blog series, we’ll go over all the various elements that should be covered for your system during the spring, whether this is done on your own or with help from our professionals wherever necessary.

Scheduling Professional Maintenance

First and foremost, the baseline for this entire conversation starts with scheduling professional maintenance for your system. While this may sound like a given, many homeowners choose to skip out on these vital appointments and end up dealing with the consequences later.

At All Pro Appliance, we recommend that all of our clients schedule an annual inspection for their HVAC systems in order to ensure the best possible performance throughout the entire year. In fact many of the important elements of spring AC upkeep we’re about to discuss will be covered during this important annual check, allowing for any issues to be addressed as early as possible.

In addition, it’s important to note that scheduling professional maintenance may also be a requirement of your warranty provider, so make sure you take care of this step before spring arrives in order to ensure optimal coverage moving forward.

Filter Considerations

Filters should be something you’re thinking about all year round, and spring is no exception. Memory foam filters are often used in HVAC systems, and they should be checked every month or two during peak usage periods such as the summer season. During the spring it’s a good idea to clean any filters that have not been changed recently in order to allow for maximum air flow throughout your system.

It may also be a good idea to consider upgrading your air filters during the spring season in order to ensure optimal efficiency and performance. We offer many different types of upgraded filters for clients around Salt Lake City, and you can always ask our technicians about options that may best suit your system and budget.

Thermostat Checks or Upgrades

Another key element of spring HVAC maintenance is checking the thermostat. In many cases, an old or faulty thermostat can be a major source of inefficiency and discomfort, so it’s important to make sure yours is up to date.

If you have an older model that uses traditional mercury switches, now may be the time to consider upgrading to a new digital thermostat. These models are not only much more precise and accurate, but they also offer far greater control over your system’s functions, all in a sleek, user friendly package.

In part two of our series, we’ll look at some of the other key elements that should be taken into consideration when performing spring HVAC maintenance. Until then, contact us at All Pro Appliance to learn more about our professional repair and tune-up services throughout Salt Lake City – we look forward to working with you!

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the reasons why it’s important to regularly clean your oven and stovetop area, plus some initial steps for doing so. Grease is a significant risk in these areas if it’s not properly removed, possibly leading to everything from annoyance to health concerns, but there are some very simple ways to avoid these risks with just a few periodic approaches.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re happy to provide appliance repair services for any appliance you own in Salt Lake City, including oven repairs for any need. In our oven repair programs, we often find that lack of grease removal is a key culprit in disrepair issues for many ovens, ranges and stovetop areas – with this in mind, let’s pick up where we left off in part one of our series and discuss how to finalize the cleaning of your oven (a process we’re happy to help with, if needed).

Spot Treating With Baking Soda Paste

We left off in part one with the formulation and application of a baking soda solution, one that involves one part baking soda and three parts warm water. Once you’ve got this mixed up, the first step is to begin spot-treating specific areas that need more attention.

This is best done by mixing a thicker paste – simply add a bit more baking soda until the solution reaches the preferred consistency. We recommend using a soft-bristle brush or cloth to apply this paste to areas in need, and then letting it rest for 15 minutes before cleaning it away with either warm water or a damp cloth.

Degreaser Soap

Once you’ve fully spot-treated your oven or stovetop area, the next step is to use a degreaser soap solution. This involves combining a quarter cup of dish detergent with two cups of warm water in a spray bottle – you’ll want to shake it up vigorously until it’s fully mixed.

The goal here is to saturate the entire surface that needs to be cleaned, and then allowing it to rest for 20 minutes before wiping away with a damp cloth or rag. Be sure not to use abrasive cleaning tools on your oven or stovetop surface, as this can cause scratches and other disrepair issues.

If Needed: Stronger Degreasing Products

In some cases, the process we’ve described here may not quite do the trick – if you feel your oven or stovetop area needs a bit more cleaning power, there are some strong chemical-based degreasing products available. Be sure to follow the instructions provided with any product closely, as different brands may require slightly different applications and precautions.

Finally, don’t forget to take preventative measures in the future as well – once your cleaning is done, make sure you take steps to avoid grease buildup by using a non-stick oven liner on the bottom rack and wiping up spills as soon as possible.

At All Pro Appliance Service, we’re here to help with any kind of appliance repair need for Salt Lake City area customers. If you’re having any kind of problem with your oven or stovetop, don’t hesitate to reach out – we’ll be happy to diagnose and repair any issue. Thanks for reading!
