Each of them requires special maintenance to last longer. Proper storage, necessary repairs in case of need, and replacement tool parts will make these tools last longer. Knowing how to take care of your power tools helps you improve both the safety and longevity of these practical tools.

Clean your tools before storing them

Power tools need to be cleaned after each use and before being stored. Remove dirt, grass, metal shavings, etc. that can get into the motor or other moving parts. Compressed air dusters, high- pressure washers, polishers, etc. are the best options that can help you to clean your tools. Make sure that you are lubricating all the moving parts of your tool. Keeping your tool well-oiled keeps its parts away from heating and corroding. Remember, improper use of cleaning tools can also damage your power tools. High pressure can push the dirt right into the tool and cause more damages.
