If you’re a mom like me, you should understand exactly how exhilarating buying new appliance is. Thinking about purchasing a brand new item for the home feels super fun – even more enjoyable than a night out in the city! Well, what can I say? I guess we all mellow down with age and we find pleasure in the most peculiar things and activities. Oftentimes, we feel absolutely satisfied doing the most mundane of tasks such as appliance shopping. It’s one of our guilty pleasures, if I had to say.
There are a lot of things we can shop for our house – a new TV, a bigger refrigerator, or even a luxurious Jacuzzi! Well, that is, if you have the money. Hanging out at the furniture and appliance section of Walmart can be such a treat that we’d rather spend hours there during our days off. If you’re a work-at-home wife like me, I believe you can relate to the excitement of Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays (Check this out: https://www.realsimple.com/holidays-entertaining/holidays/more-holidays/black-friday-cyber-monday-wait). Online shopping stores like Amazon just throw these crazy deals that lure you into a shopping frenzy. I practically live for those moments!
But as they say, there are two sides to every coin. Appliances are both to be loved and hated. We love them because they make our lives a little more convenient and yet we hate them for being so fragile! One wrong move and poof! Your brand new TV, refrigerator, or Jacuzzi can go up in smoke! There goes your money and hard work – all torn into tiny little pieces. It is heart-breaking indeed.
However, you should know that appliances – electronics, especially – don’t just break for no reason. Sometimes, it is our own fault for being careless. If you spill water on electronic devices, of course they’re going to break. If you exhaust them by using them for too long (e.g. turning the TV on for more than 12 hours at a time), of course they’re going to break. All too often, appliances break due to our inability to care for them efficiently (or for this reason). It’s not that they break voluntarily; they break because we don’t love them enough. Because electronic devices don’t have self-regenerative abilities, it is up to us to help them get better when they’re sick. Thank goodness for the existence of appliance doctors.
When your device starts acting up or breaks down completely, fret not. It most certainly isn’t the end of the world. There are certain measures you can take to bring them back to their good ol’ working selves. You just have to know the right people to reach out to.
Who Are Appliance Repairmen?
Well, just as the name suggests, appliance repairmen are professionals who are especially skilled at handling, repairing, and improving household electronics. Long story short, they deal with anything related to appliance repair. They are trained experts who are well-versed with the inner workings of common devices and home appliances. When there is trouble concerning TVs, refrigerators, air-conditioners, washing machines and the like – they are the men for the job.
Of course, it is important to note that although these professionals are trained to do the job right, it doesn’t mean that they’re doing a right job. There’s a clear difference, you see, between effectivity and efficiency. When someone is effective, he or she is expected to do a good job. His methods work but it doesn’t mean that it’s the best way to get the job done. When someone is efficient, he or she does the job in the best way possible – even if his methods are far from what is conventional. He does the job without fail and takes all other factors into consideration. He considers time, effort, effectiveness and sustainability. He repairs with a long-term result in mind – not anything temporary.
Between these two professionals, the effective and the efficient, it is obvious who the better choice is. With defective appliances, you will want a repairman that looks for long-term solutions and not short-term ones. A temporary solution may work for a while, but then you’ll end up with the same problem later on. Even if it costs you a little bit more, don’t hesitate to opt for better help. You’ll learn to appreciate your choice in the long run.
