Refrigerator care – Top 5 tips
During operation, the refrigeration equipment gets dirty and needs cleaning. Often, this process takes a lot of time and causes a lot of trouble, especially if we are talking about old modifications. They need to defrost the freezer, wash all surfaces and much more. At the same time, modern models are well enough to wipe with a rag. But there are cases when wet “cleaning” is not the solution to all problems. To make the care procedures as effective as possible, take note of a few tips.
Use of special tools
On sale there are chemical-based products for the care of refrigerators. They are used according to the instructions, working with gloves. But there are several alternative solutions that already exist in your home:
- Soda — it is enough to apply a small amount on a wet sponge and rub the surface thoroughly. This solution is suitable for both internal and external processing. At the same time, take into account the specifics of the material from which the refrigerator is made.
- Dishwashing detergent — its use is rational with minor contamination. All you need is to apply it on a sponge and wipe the contaminated areas. The dirt will be cleaned and a pleasant smell will appear in the refrigerator.
- Toothpaste is a good alternative to detergents when there are heavily contaminated areas. It is applied locally and left for a couple of minutes, then washed off well.
In the process of cleaning the refrigerator, use soft rags and sponges without an abrasive surface. This will avoid scratches and clouding of the surfaces of the refrigerator and the outer case.
Elimination of unpleasant odor
You can buy special odor absorbers that will be inside the refrigerator 24/7. At the same time, it is necessary to carry out a complete cleaning of all surfaces every few months. At home, the smell is well removed by a solution of ammonia, where a tablespoon of the drug is taken per liter of water. Surfaces are treated with it and wiped dry.
Cleaning of dirt
Depending on the specifics of the material, cleaning should be carried out accordingly. If plastic surfaces are less susceptible to damage, metal surfaces need to comply with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Most often, consumers prefer light soapy solutions, using microfiber or a soft sponge for cleaning. If mold has formed on the surfaces of the refrigerator, it needs to be eliminated only by special means
Defrosting and washing the refrigerator
Before cleaning the refrigerator, it is defrosted. To do this, the equipment is disconnected from the network, then the products are unloaded and left for several hours. After the “snow coat” is defrosted, the surfaces are washed using special tools or those that you have at home.
The experts of the Optimus Appliance & HVAC Inc. recommend resorting to timely maintenance of refrigerators, even if it seems to you that the breakdown is insignificant! The more regularly you carry out maintenance, the less time and effort will be spent as a result.
