Nothing beats having a nice and clean home to come home to every day after a long tiring day at work, school, or simply wherever you go to during your day. While it may seem like a hassle to clean your home every day, and statistics do show that the average adult spends one to three hours every day on household chores, studies have shown that in order to live mentally healthy and active lives, a clean house is a must.
A dirty home can not only be dangerous because of germs, mold, and tripping or slipping hazards, but having a dirty home can also make you more likely to fall into a bout of depression, which includes feeling unmotivated and hopeless.
However, many people nowadays don’t know how to do a lot of deep cleaning. Home economics classes in school are becoming less and less popular in favor of more STEM related fields, so a lot of people who are owning houses nowadays don’t automatically know the specifics of how to clean certain parts of your home.
This can become very dangerous if improper chemicals or treatments are used on wrong surfaces, which can lead to damage, a bad reaction, or even dangerous fumes if they aren’t handled correctly. For that precise reason, we have compiled a guide on how to clean a very tricky spot: Your refrigerator coils.
Cleaning Refrigerator Coils
Cleaning your refrigerator coils isn’t a hard task to do, but it can be dangerous if you don’t know how to do it properly, as the coils are connected to electricity and could possibly shock you if you don’t handle them properly. So the first and most important step when cleaning refrigerator coils is to unplug the unit, making sure that it has no power in it to accidentally harm you when cleaning.
Next you need to clear a path to the coils, removing the base grille if necessary to make sure you have access to the refrigerator coils you’re planning on cleaning. You might have to pull out the unit if necessary, so emptying it out might have to be a step you take early on, if you cannot move it with the stuff still inside.
Thirdly, and most importantly, you need to clean the refrigerator coils. Using a refrigerator coil brush specifically made for cleaning your coils, you need to brush and scrub away the grime and dirt, making sure they are clean and spotless.
Lastly you need to move everything back, replace the base grille if you took it out, and then plug the refrigerator back in, resuming use. Also, if you took out all your food, replace it now so it doesn’t get spoiled.
