You may not be able to control when a storm will blow through and leave you without power, but you can take some steps to make sure your appliances are ready for a few days of downtime. Properly storing your appliances is important if you want them to last as long as possible. Follow these tips on how to store appliances:
It’s important to store your washer and dryer in a clean and well-ventilated area. Avoid storing them in a basement or garage unless they’re well vented and you have the space available. You should also keep them away from heat sources such as furnaces or air conditioners, as these can cause damage over time. If you don’t have any other options, place them on platforms that elevate them away from moisture buildup on the floor (if you do not have wooden floors). Also keep them away from water sources like sinks, toilets, or bathtubs. Remember: appliances need air circulating around them to function properly!
Don’t store it in the garage. If you have a garage and the microwave is one of your most-used kitchen appliances, then this might seem like a good place to put it. Don’t do that. The cold air from any open door will cause condensation inside your microwave and ruin its electronics.
Don’t store it in the attic or basement. If you don’t want to make room for your microwave in one of the rooms listed above, then don’t try to store it up high where no one can see or use it—that just wastes space and makes things difficult later on when you want to bring out your beloved appliance again.
Don’t store it on countertops or in closets (for example). Even if there are plenty of places available around your house where you could put a microwave safely away from everyone else but still keep it nearby whenever needed—think about which options would work best for each situation before making any decisions about where exactly should go next time someone needs their favorite lunchtime food reheated quickly after coming home from work late again!
