Caring for your refrigeration equipment is essential if you wish to keep your refrigeration system running smoothly throughout the new year. While you might have survived the Christmas crush, there are a couple of ways for you to make it through 2016 without having to suffer those dreaded refrigeration breakdowns.
It may sound like a chore but trust us, one sure fire way to keep your refrigeration system running smoothly is by putting a little time a side for a good clean. Make sure you disinfect your refrigerator with special refrigerator disinfectant around the door seals, between shelves and on the base of your refrigerator especially- these are the places most people miss and where dirt, mould and contaminated ice are most likely to turn up.
Ice makers have a particular interest in harbouring contaminated ice so it’s a good idea to take extra care when handling these machines. Water lines should be checked regularly, as should bins and any ice dispensers, not only does contaminated ice leave a nasty smell but it can seriously harm your paying customers if consumed or inhaled.
De-Ice Your Refrigeration Equipment
A lot of people make the mistake of believing a lot of ice in their refrigeration equipment is a good sign- that their system is obviously working. Too much ice, however, can have a damaging effect on your equipment and can seem very messy and unappealing to customers. Make sure you take time out to defrost your refrigeration system as much as possible without spoiling your stock.
Have It Checked Regularly
