Should I Get My Oven, Stove, Washer, Dryer Fixed?
Yes. If you’re even considering doing so, you should. Procrastinating getting your appliances looked at not only can be self sabotaging but it can also be risky.

What Happens If I don’t Get My Oven, Stove, Washer, Dryer Fixed?
Some people procrastinate getting their appliances dealing with appliance problems. We understand you might see it as a hassle, another expense, or something that can wait. We advise changing your outlook and become proactive. After all, you work so hard. The amount of sacrifice and determination you endure to afford a home and everything in it, shouldn’t be squandered because of negligence.
It’s only natural to procrastinate. We’re all guilty of it. We often tell ourselves things like:
“I’ll get gas tomorrow on the way to work”, or “The gym can wait until Monday.” The difference is none of these delays will result in serious harm and destruction, like putting off appliance repairs.
Whether it’s due to stress, anxiety, lack of time, lack of a deadline, or hope the problem will just go away, It never turns out well. You end up late, feeling worse, and produce low quality of work. Procrastinating can be a dangerous game that produces life altering situations.
What Should I do if I Have a Gas Leak?
Don’t risk fixing this stuff yourself; it can be dangerous! Gas leaks can cause serious damage to your property and surrounding homes if not dealt with properly. They can cause an explosion and start fires capable of major destruction and serious health problems. They can come from a variety of places, including: Propane tank, barbeques, stoves, gas fireplaces, generators, and furnaces. Don’t be hesitant to get anything that could potentially be a gas issue looked at. If you have a gas bbq and aren’t certain about how to unhook the gas, ask Alliston Appliance Repair
Appliances that emit gas can release dangerous carbon monoxide if they are not properly vented. Without effective venting, carbon monoxide can build up inside a home and potentially kill those inside. You should equip your home with a carbon monoxide alarm that will alert you to dangerous levels of this potentially lethal gas.
Can My Appliances Catch On Fire?
The most common appliances that can ignite a fire and therefore most dangerous appliances are stoves, ovens, toasters, washing machines, clothes dryers
Clothes dryers present the dual threat of potential fires. Always make certain to keep the lint trap free of excess contaminants to avoid the start of a fire.
Improperly wired appliances can cause shorts and sparks that lead to fire. Although, these problems usually cause a fuse to blow or breaker to trip, in some situations this will not prevent a fire. Space heaters present another fire threat. Electric or gas space heaters can ignite any flammable items left too close to them. Keep space heaters at least three 3 feet away from boxes, clothing, drapes, paper, or anything else that could burn, and never leave space heaters running in an unoccupied room.
Can My Appliance Give Me an Electric Shock?
Electricity can be just as dangerous as gas or fire. Some shocks can be fatal. This is most likely with appliances that feature exposed heating coils such as space heaters and toasters. Any electric appliance with a worn or broken cord also can deliver a shock.
