Prevent Costly Food Spoilage with
Professional Refrigerator Coil Cleaning

Every year, countless dollars are wasted on spoiled food. Often times, this is due to a refrigerator not cooling properly. If not caught in time, your spoiled food can make you sick with salmonella, E. coli, and other bacterial infections.

What Does It Take to Clean Your Coils?

Instructions vary depending on your refrigerator brand & model. Refrigerator coils are located at the bottom of the refrigerator or under the toe plate. You’ll need a vacuum, coil cleaning brush, appliance glides (so you don’t damage the floor when moving the appliance), and about 1-1.5 hours.

Here’s an example of what is required to clean the coils.

Common Signs of Dirty Refrigerator Coils

“I can’t breathe!” -Your Refrigerator.

If your refrigerator condenser coils are as dirty as these, your refrigerator is begging you to get them cleaned.

Refrigerators can’t cool properly when they’re fighting all this dust.

Check out some of the common signs that your coils are dirty below.

If you notice any of the following signs, you could need refrigerator coils cleaning service.

Your Refrigerator Isn’t Cooling

If your refrigerator stops cooling or feels warmer than usual, the coils may need a good cleaning. Condenser coils can’t do their job if they’re covered in lint, hair, dust and other debris.

Your Refrigerator Runs Constantly

You may also notice your refrigerator running constantly, another indicator of dirty condenser coils. Since the air in the refrigerator isn’t being properly cooled, the unit has to work over-time to keep a low enough temperature.

You Have Pets

As with dryer vents, refrigerator coils get dirty much faster in homes with pets. Since many refrigerator coils are located underneath the unit on many units, they are especially susceptible to collecting hair from your furry friends. Yearly cleanings are the best way to prevent pet hair from costing you big time repair bills.
