How to Prepare for an Appliance Repair Visit in Marin County

One of the most stressful things about owning appliances is what to do when they stop working correctly. Once a problem is discovered, it can be easy to become overwhelmed with thoughts about the appliance repair costs, replacement considerations, inconvenience, and more.

Before rushing to call for appliance repair in San Francisco, you may want to try to see if the problem is an issue that can be fixed yourself. Always do a quick lookover before calling and see if you can find something simple that might be causing your washer, dryer, dishwasher, oven, or refrigerator (whatever the case may be) to not work.

However, if you can’t find anything yourself or if you’re just not comfortable poking around your appliances, it is perfectly suitable to go ahead and dial up our experts in Marin County appliance repair to come to the rescue. We’ll schedule an appointment for the earliest convenient time if your DIY approach doesn’t solve your issue.

Before we arrive to fix your appliance, there are some things you can do to prepare for the appointment to help it move along smoothly, quickly, and with as little disruption to your home as possible:

  1. Ensure that someone (an adult) will be home to allow us entry into the home. It has happened more often than you might think that repair pros go out to a location, only to find no one home to let us in to help!
  2. If anyone in the home falls ill before the appointment with a contagious illness, please call for your appliance repair appointment to be rescheduled.
  3. Ensure that the appliance that needs repair is easily accessible; clear any obstructions in the path leading to the machine, and if possible, pull the machine away from any counters or walls (although the technicians can also do this if needed). Clear away any clutter or furniture that may be around the appliance prior to the appointment.
  4. Make sure that any pets (especially dogs) are in a separate room or part of the house before the technician arrives. Animals can be unpredictable, and for everyone’s safety, it’s always best to secure pets behind closed doors or with a pet gate, crate, etc.
  5. Have a list of questions at the ready for your technician to address to help you understand what the issue is, how it may have happened, and how you can prevent it from happening in the future (if possible). It’s easy to forget all the things you might want to discuss with your SF appliance repair pro at the time of the appointment; as such, we recommend writing down any questions or concerns you have in advance.
