EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR REFRIGERATOR
On average, a refrigerator has a useful life of between 10 and 16 years, although some brands have VDE certifications that ensure the refrigerator will last at least 20 years. However, whether you can reach the maximum time will depend on the care and maintenance provided.
CLEANING IS THE KEY
One of those key parts is the spool, that tube that twists at the back and serves to help cool the engine. Usually, it often gets dusty and this dirt slows down its work and shortens its life. Therefore, a recommendation is to wipe with a damp cloth to remove dust or a feather duster.
Another option, if you have one, is to use a vacuum cleaner, which should be done with the refrigerator unplugged, which will also help remove lint and pet hair from around the coils that are also clogging the area.
As for its interior, it is recommended to do a deep cleaning every two or three months. “Our technicians suggest avoiding the use of detergent to wash the packaging. With a mixture of water and bicarbonate, it cleans perfectly ”, adds the expert who indicates that for the external part it is recommended to use a damp wool.
EYES ON POSITION
Also, it is advised to be very careful while choosing the location where it is installed. The main thing is to assess that there is no heat source around, such as the oven or stove.
In addition, it is ideal to keep it away from areas where there is water or equipment that runs on electricity all day.
In view of this, the best option is to place the refrigerator in a corner of the kitchen, away from these items, without storing it, and in a place where it does not take up much space. Once located, the most important thing is that there is a space of about 10 centimeters between the back of the refrigerator and the wall.
