RAV4 coolant change

I am thinking about let autoshop flush my coolant. My RAV4's coolant was flush by mechanic 4 years ago. coolant is red. I took a coolant sample under the radiator cap. Coolant is still pretty clear. How long does red coolant last? Should I wait another year to flush my coolant?

Check the owner's manual for the recommended interval. FWIW I wouldn't pay a lot of money for a "flush" unless there was some indication of a problem. A periodic drain and refill with fresh coolant is generally sufficient.
