Preventive Maintenance for Refrigerator

We store our foods in the refrigerator, so it is very important to keep it clean and germ-free. Improperly stored foods, leaks and spills are possible nesting grounds for bacteria. To prevent our family from getting food-borne diseases, we have to make sure that our refrigerator is debris-free for it to run smoothly.

Here are some simple steps to clean our refrigerator:
  • Wash the shelves with mild detergent and warm water. Use disinfectant to kill bacteria.

  • Wipe the gaskets whenever there is debris or clean it at least once every three to four months to keep the cold air flowing continuously.

  • Clean the refrigerator’s exterior face with hot water and dish soap when it shows any off coloring.

  • Clean the coils in your refrigerator by using a handheld vacuum to remove any loose particles. You may vacuum every 6 to 12 months. If you don't have a vacuum cleaner, wipe the coils with a dry cloth every 3 months.
