How to care for your dishwasher?

Dishwashers are very practical appliances. They are especially desirable in places where large numbers of people live. In those places, it is no longer necessary to make the tiring process of manually washing a lot of dishes.

As happens with any other appliance, dishwashers must be taken care of, so they can continue to fulfil their valuable role. Our company provides support in the entire London area for this and any other type of appliance. But, it is always a good idea to know how to take care of this piece of machinery by ourselves. Here there will be a few advices to do just that.

First, it is necessary to scrape the plates before putting it in the dishwasher. The food remains that are in the plates can clog the important components of the appliance. This means that in the long term the machine will work less efficiently.

Another very important advice is to not overcrowd the dishwasher. Many people can be tempted to fill it with as many dishes and utensils as possible. However, in those situations, it is highly likely that they will not be cleaned properly. Some of them may not be cleaned at all. This can be solved in two ways. Either it is possible to make more than one washing cycle, or some items could be washed by hand.

Despite the dishwasher being by definition a machine that washes plates, it is still necessary to regularly and manually wash and clean the machine itself. Over time food remains will start to accumulate, which means that the washing process will be less efficient over time. Those remains can also start to grow bacteria and other types of undesirable guests, meaning that plates can have unsanitary conditions if the appliance is not cleaned in a long enough time.

Specifically, it is recommended to remove the tray located beneath the sprayer. Once removed it is more than likely that food remains will be found. They can be wiped with a paper towel. The rubber seals shouldn’t be ignored either. Every few months they should be carefully cleaned, as they can also accumulate bacteria and other remains.
