#6 : Not Cleaning Your Fridge Vent
While a lot of people clean their fridges regularly, an equal amount of people forget all about the grill and vent. More often than not, a buildup of dust will slow down your system and, before you know it, you’re shopping for a new fridge!
It’s best to clean the vent once a month by using an all-purpose spray and a soft cloth. You can also use your vacuum by attaching a hose extension that will help you get into those hard-to-reach areas. Lastly, make sure to clean the back and top of your fridge as those areas are just as forgotten and need as much attention as other parts of your home.
Now your fridge is squeaky clean inside and out!
