Older refrigerators, freezers or fridge-freezer combos in particular suffer from the formation of a thick layer of ice on the side walls, which can also spread to the food (freezer burn). This is primarily due to the moisture that forms inside the devices due to the cold air. This can result in doors or drawers no longer opening or closing properly. Even modern devices with an automatic defrost function or no-frost technology will develop a thin layer of ice over time. Another disadvantage is that power consumption is significantly increased as a result. Regular defrosting and ice removal will extend the life of your freezer, chest freezer, or refrigerator.
With the dry steam cleaner, you can steam the ice away in no time, and that means perfectly cleaning and disinfecting at the same time.
Store frozen food in a cool place
While the freezer is defrosting, the frozen food must be stored in a cool place to prevent it from spoiling. The best time to do this is in winter or early spring when it is cold outside. You can temporarily store the food on the balcony or patio. Another option is to temporarily store the perishable food with ice packs in a cooler or in a basket.
Quickly defrost the freezer with a dry steam cleaner
Cooling appliances such as freezers, chest freezers or the ice compartment in the refrigerator should be thoroughly cleaned and defrosted regularly – at least once a year.
