Defrosting your refrigerator or freezer might seem like a daunting task, but it's an essential part of maintenance that ensures the longevity and efficiency of your equipment. By following an optimal defrosting schedule, you can prevent ice build-up that can lead to energy inefficiency and other negative impacts.

So, when should you defrost your refrigerator or freezer?

The defrosting frequency depends on the type of refrigerator or freezer you have and how often it's used. Generally, we recommend defrosting your refrigerator or freezer at least once or twice a year. However, if you notice a quarter-inch or more of frost build-up, it's time for a defrost.

What is the optimal defrosting method?

Here's a simple step-by-step guide:

1. **Unplug and Empty:** Unplug your appliance and remove all items. Keep perishable items in a cool place or another refrigerator.

2. **Wipe and Clean:** Wipe the interior with a cloth. You can also use a mild detergent solution to clean it thoroughly.

3. **Let it Defrost:** Leave the door open and let the frost melt away. This process could take a few hours.

4. **Dry and Plug-in:** Once all the frost has melted, dry the interior thoroughly before plugging it back in.

5. **Restock:** Wait until the temperature has dropped to a safe level before restocking your items.
