Maintaining And Cleaning Commercial Refrigeration

Regular cleaning and maintenance increase the life of your industrial refrigeration unit and save energy consumption. While you can perform necessary maintenance yourself, you will require expert help to get a total cleaning and inspection throughout the year.

On-site visual inspection

Inspect and clean the exterior of the module, including doors, seals, and outer surfaces. You can also hire the best refrigeration case cleaning experts through various online sources.

Check that the gaskets seal the air-conditioned room well on all four sides. Avoid using harsh chemicals to clean the outside of your commercial refrigeration unit. Mild soapy water will help. When cleaning, take precautions so that water does not come into contact with electrical components. It is best to bypass using a hose to clean the refrigerator or the surrounding area.

Ventilation

To ensure that the refrigerator or freezer cools properly, keep the ventilation holes free. Locate the vent and make sure nothing is blocking the airflow. Clogged vents can cause temperature problems, moisture buildup, and even excessive frost. 

Use a food thermometer to check the temperature of the product in your refrigerator. To do this, simply put a bottle of water in the refrigerator and test the water temperature after twenty minutes for an accurate reading.

Clean Drain Lines

Keep drains out of any way by cleaning them regularly. Insert a thin brush into the drain hole and clean the hole to make sure there is no ice or dirt in it. Also, wash the drain with warm soap and water to remove anything trapped in it.
