Prepare Your Fridge for the Move

As one of the leading Fullerton moving companies, Executive Moving Systems realizes that certain kinds of property require special preparation before being hauled away. One type that definitely requires a bit of pre-move attention is your refrigerator.  Before your Fullerton movers arrive on the scene, you’ll want to make sure this all-important appliance has been suitably defrosted. 
 
If your refrigerator features an automatic defrost, you won’t have much to do. While many new fridges offer this feature, some still require a manual defrost. If yours doesn’t do the job on its own, you’ll have to handle the assignment. And you must do it well before the arrival of your Fullerton moving company. Believe us, it’s no fun cleaning out of fridge while crews are bustling back and forth. OK, here’s what you’ll need.
 
1. Towels – Lay these down at the foot of the fridge to absorb melted ice. 
2. Soap – For cleaning the fridge interior. 
 
Once you have these supplies at the ready, you can begin the defrosting process. Start by removing all contents from the refrigerator and setting it on a nearby counter or table. Food that must remain frozen should be stored in an ice chest or cooler.
 
Make sure the fridge doors are open wide. This permits the entry of warm air, which of course, expedites the melting process.  Once the defrosting begins, wipe the interior clean with soap and water. By the way, it doesn’t hurt to do a final wiping with a sponge soaked in water only – this prevents a soapy buildup on the inner walls of your fridge.
