Maintenance Matters

Clean the Fridge Coils

As mentioned on the spring home maintenance checklist, now is the perfect time to remove the dust and grime of winter from your refrigerator coils to encourage optimum performance and energy efficiency.

To clean the coils, you can simply use the hose attachment from your vacuum. Alternatively, you can use a spray bottle with water and spray and wipe the coils. And, while you have the fridge pulled out, it’s a good time to vacuum the dust bunnies behind the fridge, too.

Did You Know?

Daylight Saving Time on March 9 was the time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors. If you didn’t change them then, add this task to your spring home maintenance checklist. You might also consider switching from a regular smoke detector to one that also detects carbon monoxide at the same time.
