Fridge cleaning is one of those jobs you should do every month or so… but since it’s not a routine cleaning job, it can be easy to forget. Before you know it, your fridge and freezer shelves have built up layers of who-knows-what and probably aren’t fit for purpose (like safely storing consumables). If you don’t have the time or cleaning your fridge isn’t your idea of a fun Saturday morning, why not hire a fridge cleaning pro to take care of it for you?
The best place to get help with fridge cleaning is on Airtasker. Simply post your task, choose a local cleaner who fits your budget, then book your fridge cleaning service. You’ll have a fresh fridge and freezer in no time, with no mould, no crumbs, and definitely no spilt milk.
Most fridge cleaning services take around 1-2 hours. But if you need mould removed, defrosting, fridge coil cleaning, or a water/ice dispenser cleaned, it may take longer
Your fridge cleaning service will depend on what parts of your fridge need cleaning, and if your fridge includes a freezer and/or ice dispenser. Here’s what you can expect from the most common fridge cleaning services:
Fridge and freezer cleaning starts by removing all the cold items and putting them in cooler bags so they stay safe and cold. Next, your cleaner will unplug the fridge. If the freezer (or fridge) has built-up ice, they’ll leave it for up to 1-2 hours so it can defrost, collecting the water using old towels and buckets. They may also carefully scrape away at big chunks of ice or use a blow dryer to speed up the process. Your fridge cleaner will then wipe down all the surfaces of your fridge and freezer with soapy water and wash the shelves in the sink. They’ll clean inside and out, paying special attention to areas like seals (prone to mould) and handles. Finally, they’ll dry all surfaces with a towel before putting it all back together, switching your appliance on, and putting back all your cold food and drinks.
To clean your fridge’s water and ice dispenser, your cleaner will first ensure the water valve is shut off or disconnected before removing the ice bin and tipping out any ice (including built-up ice). They’ll sit white vinegar in the ice maker and dispenser lines for around 10 minutes to break down any lime, before rinsing with clean water. Next, they’ll clean the nozzles with a damp cloth and vinegar, getting into any grooves to remove dirt. Finally, they’ll wash the ice bin with soapy water then dry with a clean towel before putting everything back together, including the water valve.
This one gets a special mention because office fridge cleaning is a tricky area. Who is responsible for cleaning the office fridge, after all? Not you. Not them. It makes sense to hire someone to do this every couple of weeks so you can avoid the awkwardness (and that nasty smell). Your cleaner will remove any old food and bin it, before wiping down all the surfaces to ensure your office fridge is clean, fresh, and sparkly.
