The rainy season brings more than just downpours. There’s a big chance that many of our homes are not even prepared for the unexpected strong blows.
Did you know that very few appliances are waterproof, which could lead to repairs or total replacement?
Midea appliances are designed to physically withstand wear and tear. With proper care for these home appliances, we can keep them at their best even through damp and soggy days.
Here are some useful and time-tested tips to make sure that they’re in top shape to deliver uninterrupted comfort through the wettest days of the year.
10 APPLIANCE CARE TIPS FOR THE RAINY DAYS
1. Keep your electric cords in good condition.
Be mindful of the following safety tips to take care of your sockets and cords during rainy season to avoid short circuits and fire hazards:
- Do not overload an electric socket with multiple cords and adapters.
- Use insulators to cover all electrical cords.
- Do not staple or nail them. Use appropriate tapes.
- Change loose cords and sockets immediately. Plug cords firmly to their sockets.
- Do not place cords underneath carpets or rugs.
2. Do not let your electric appliances get wet.
Electric appliances malfunction or fuse out if water gets in them or stays inside. It is also a fire hazard if the moisture or water stays and they are turned on. Make sure to store them in a cool and dry place until the rains are over.
3. Unplug appliances when not in use.
After doing your laundry with the Midea 10/7kg Fully Automatic Front Load Combo Washing Machine, make sure to unplug it, like the rest of your appliances when not in use.

4. Immediately turn off and disconnect an appliance when it sparks or stalls.
All outlets can create a spark when the circuit is active. But sometimes, it can cause abnormal sparks that can be dangerous to the whole electrical system, especially if it is dampened by water.
If you encountered sparks that smell, are lengthy and big, it is a sign to immediately turn it off and seek the help of your trusted electrician.

5. Clean your Midea appliances regularly.
By regularly checking and cleaning your appliances, you can be assured that there’s no dampness, damage, or loose wires around. This will keep you and your family safe at home.
6. Schedule a regular Preventive Maintenance Check for your Air Conditioner.
Being a tropical country, the temperature in the Philippines can still be quite hot in spite of the rainy season. Your air conditioner helps in keeping your home at the perfect temperature, providing you with cooling comfort that you and your family deserve.
That’s why taking care of it with a Preventive Maintenance Check will help you fix minor problems immediately and let it perform in optimal conditions.
Here’s a Preventive Maintenance checklist for your Air Conditioner
- Inspect and clean the drain line and pan.
- Clean condenser coils and evaporator.
- Clean air registers as dusty air registers reduce airflow.
