Safely Clean Your Appliances at Home with these Tips

According to a study published by The New England Journal of Medicine, the SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes the contagious COVID-19 can live for a specific period of time on plastics and stainless steel -- the two most common appliance surfaces at home.

Here’s a quick list of what to do to clean appliances at home from XTREME Appliances.
home appliances to keep you and your loved ones healthy:

Wipe off the dust from TV and sanitize your remote
It’s always an important measure to regularly wipe off the dust in your home since it’s a common allergen that triggers an allergic reaction when inhaled. After dusting off the television, remember to turn it off first before cleaning its surface with a slightly damped microfiber cloth or soft cloth. Don’t press too hard on the TV as it may leave damages. Don’t forget to also wipe your remote control with a cloth poured with 70% isopropyl alcohol.

Avoid using air conditioner filters that get clogged and dirty
A clean air conditioner is a great help not just in terms of sanitation and hygiene but also in saving energy. Properly clean your air conditioner by removing the trim panel or frame, remove dust and dirt from the cooling fins using a fin comb, remove visible build-ups or debris using a vacuum, let it dry, then assemble it back.

Also, it helps if you refrain using your air conditioner 24 hours a day every day to avoid having it overused, thus, refraining possible damages to the compressor and the condenser.

Always clean your refrigerator
The refrigerator should be a priority in cleaning, since this is where food is kept and stored, like fresh meat and vegetables. A clean refrigerator is essential in keeping food fresh and safe from food-borne viruses and germs.

Remember also have a weekly check on the items inside the refrigerator and throw away expired consumables. In cleaning refrigerators, carefully take out shelves and drawers and wash them with dish soap, or using a mixture of baking soda and vinegar, then rinse and wipe it with a clean cloth. It’s also ideal to clean first all the food before storing it inside the refrigerator.

Here’s an XTREME tip: Eliminate foul odor and maintain it smelling fresh by putting activated charcoal or open baking soda.

“While our homes act as our haven in this present situation, there is nothing wrong with ensuring that we are free from any sickness even indoors. Our frontliners are working hard to save each life while risking theirs. Let's do them a favor. Stay at home to avoid the risk of getting the virus. Let's stay healthy. ” shares Adrian Lim, XTREME Appliances General Manager.

That’s it, folks! Stay safe and clean at home!
