Maintaining Your Outdoor Appliances During Winter

With winter settled in the Spokane area, there isn’t much you can do with your yard. All landscaping activities have stopped. Those nice summer parties are now indoors as the children play outside in the snow. Even though lawn care is not needed in the winter, its still important to maintain your outdoor appliances. Outdoor appliances include your gas grill, as well as any fridges or stoves you may on your deck. Usually those who enjoy the outdoors of their backyard will have an area built for entertaining, an outdoor kitchen or maybe just one gas or charcoal grill. Even though these items are made to last out in the weather, they still need to be maintained during the off season.

How to maintain your outdoor appliances:

  • By a waterproof cover that completely covers your appliance.
  • Put gas or charcoal grills inside if possible.
  • Build a gazebo our buy a small shed where you can store your appliances during the winter.
  • Before winter sets in, have your appliances checked or winterized by a professional.

Weather is hard enough on your outdoor appliances, so the simple act of covering the appliance will help keep it from getting damaged. Even though most outdoor appliances are made to withstand harsh environments, they can still get damaged by winter storms, winds, debris and/or animals. One big issue you need to be aware of, is that little rodents may try to build a home inside of your appliance. If they can find a way, they will try to escape the weather.

In order to be prepared for the winter months, contact a local company that will help you manage and maintain your appliances. One great company is Robinsons Appliance Repair. They have been serving Spokane for more than 30 years. With so many years of experience they can help you make sure you won’t have a huge repair bill when summer comes back around. Not only will they help you keep your appliances in great working order but they offer appliance repair services throughout all of Spokane, WA.

Spokane Lighting Features and Services

Winter is almost here, which means the dark winter nights will be upon us! Just because it is winter doesn’t mean you need to slack on your landscaping. Having landscape lighting will help not only keep your yard looking great but it will help brighten up a rather dark and cold period of time. Living in Spokane, we don’t lose too much day light during the winter, but at the peak of winter we will have about 8 hours of day light, which means more than half the day it will be dark. Having lighting features like driveway lights will make your house look much nicer in the winter.
