Pull out your refrigerator and check behind it. Over time dust and dirt accumulates on the back of the refrigerator and can clog filters and vents that help the appliance run smoothly and efficiently. Use a shop vac or vacuum to clean the back and sides of the refrigerator, clean the floor and around the appliance as well. Be careful not to kink, break, or damage any water lines that go to the unit for the water or ice maker. Also take care not to damage your floor when pulling it out or pushing it back in, you can lay a thin piece of hardboard on the floor to protect it if you are worried about damaging the floor. It is also a good idea to clean the inside of the refrigerator and/or freezer. Get rid of all outdated items and the bottle of mustard or salad dressing that has been sitting in there half used for the last year. Clean the shelving and drawers. If you have a freezer that has built up ice on the shelves or walls, it is a great idea to defrost and clean it.  A little cleaning each year will help the efficiency and the life span of your refrigerator and freezer.  If you have no idea what I am talking about give me a call, I can help! - Jeff

I know I need to do this as my outdoor freezer keeps closing in upon myself. Finding the time is the trick although once I run out of space I'm sure then I'll find the time
