Fridge is where edible items get stored needs a regular cleaning once in atleast fortnight. Both Inside and out. Aprt from external cleaning Defrosting is required for some freezers which do not have automatic/inbuilt defrosting option. But, if you don’t have a self-defrosting fridge then you have to defrost it manually. The freezer compartment must be defrosted regularly when the ice layer is about 5 mm thick.
Before defrosting make sure that you remove all frozen food from the freezer and place it in another cool place or wrap them in cloth. To collect water and ice, pull out the drain trough from the bottom of the freezer and place a container under it. Also, if you have a reverse osmosis filter system installed in your kitchen, ensure that it continues to provide you with clean water throughout the defrosting process.
