A Refreshing Start: January Home Maintenance Tips from Your Trusted Oregon Coast Realtor



Hello North Oregon Coast homeowners,


As we embrace the new year, it's the perfect time to give your home the attention it deserves. As your local Oregon Coast Realtor, I understand the unique challenges our coastal homes face. Here are some January home maintenance tips to keep your sanctuary in top-notch condition:


1. Refrigerator TLC: Vacuum Those Coils

Your refrigerator works hard to keep things cool, but it needs a little care too. Take a moment to vacuum the coils on the back and bottom of your fridge. Dust and debris can accumulate, making your appliance work harder than necessary. A quick vacuum session ensures optimal performance and energy efficiency.


2. Dishwasher Detox: White Vinegar Magic

For a fresh start in the kitchen, run your dishwasher with a cup of white vinegar in the top rack. This simple trick helps remove built-up soap scum, grease, and mineral deposits. Your dishes will thank you, and your dishwasher will operate more efficiently.


3. Garbage Disposal Revitalization: Ice, Baking Soda, & Lemon Peel

Give your garbage disposal a spa day by grinding ice cubes, baking soda, and lemon peel. This trio helps clean, deodorize, and sharpen the blades. The result? A disposal that efficiently tackles whatever you throw at it, leaving your kitchen smelling citrusy fresh.


As your dedicated Realtor on the Oregon Coast, I believe that maintaining your home is an investment in its long-term value. A well-cared-for home not only provides comfort but also enhances its resale potential.
