Don’t forget to clean your home appliances, especially your refrigerator.

A lot of dust has accumulated under the refrigerator coils during the close winter months. Cleaning up the dust and doing good maintenance on your refrigerator is good for your appliance, your budget and the environemnt in general. Your appliance will last much longer and will run at its top capacity, saving energy in the long run.

Tips on cleaning your refrigerator this spring:

The first thing to do is pull your refrigerator away from the wall. How?

Most refrigerators, built in the past fifteen years, have been built on rollers. Before moving the unit from the wall, it is a good idea to retract the front leveling legs. To make sure the refrigerator is lighter, and that nothing is spilled or broken, empty the appliance.

Grasp the unit near the bottom, pull it straight out, and be careful not to scratch your floor. Experts recommend an easy accessory for this task, the Easy Glide Tracks, to make this process easier and your floor safe from damage.
