Once you’ve decided on the perfect freezer for your garage, be sure to take good care of it! Make sure to clean it out and defrost it regularly. Freezers overrun with frost are not a great look!
It is recommended that you should defrost your fridge annually. If you notice a build-up of ice, it’s a good idea to defrost it more than once a year. A great rule of thumb is that if the ice is more than a quarter-inch thick, the freezer should be defrosted.
