Easy Maintenance Tips for your Commercial Fridge

Posted in Hospitality

A commercial fridge is like a practical necessity in most large scale eateries today. They are specially built to manage and store large quantities of perishable foods and ingredients. A good quality commercial fridge will not necessarily be an inexpensive asset.

Since commercial fridges and most related kitchen equipment are priced higher, it pays to follow some simple methods to look after them. This can increase their shelf life and benefit you in the long run.

Make sure air isn’t escaping

Small gaps, cracks may lead to constant escape of air. This will overwork the cooling mechanism and compressor. You should always ensure that there are no unnecessary air leaks so that protects your entire system.

If there are any leaks, try to block it with rubber seals and additionally call a technician to find out what is wrong.

Try to remove everything once in a way

You may not have the time and patience to remove all the contents and air out the commercial fridge often, but if you try to do it sometimes at least, especially late into the nights, it will help maintain it for longer. Unlike other kitchen gadgets, the fridge is one that is left on continuously. Although this is common, it leads to greater wear and tear.

If you find the time to empty it once every few months even and just switch it off for a few hours, it will help give the system a rest. This will increase its shelf life in the long run too.
