How often do you dust behind appliances?

We live in a place that collects dust and dusting behind appliances is just not something that I have the time to do each week - that said, I am worried that if it collects, it could actually damage things (like, say, the fridge). Any thoughts?

    The appliances, are easy to move, if on wheels. I do it once a month. And sometimes every two months. Make it a fun time, for getting together with your partner, have him pull the appliances out, and you use vacuum to collect the dust. Then share a glass of wine together.

    Thanks everyone!!!

  • Chances are none of your stuff is as dusty as mine can get. Once a month is fine. Don't beat yourself up. People ignore this stuff then the fridge/stove (insert appliance here), dies a slow painful death in a short period of time and then they claim that "brand" is no good, yet they failed to maintain their appliance. I have pulled out some horrible fridges and stoves in my day . . . Talk about an archaeological dig. Spend time with your other half, play with the kids then think about the dust behind the fridge while enjoying a beverage . . . Just dont forget about it for 6 years. 🍹

    I clean those areas when the gunk begins to creep out into viewable spaces.
