How Often Should I Inspect My Walk-In Refrigerator?

In order to prevent health inspectors from finding any food safety violations in your walk-in refrigerator, you must properly clean and maintain it quarterly. Here are a few tips to keep your walk-in freezers and refrigerators operating at peak capacity and safety:

  • Wash your cooler frequently with soap and water once every other week. Don't use any harsh chemicals that might damage metal surfaces. Keep the floor around it free of debris by sweeping and mopping. Any spills in the fridge should be wiped up immediately in order to avoid dangerous freezing
  • Clean blades and evaporator fan coils quarterly. Inspect them for any wear or damage, and replace them as needed
  • Check the condensing unit regularly. Make certain that the areas around the condensing unit and evaporators are cleared to maximize proper air flow. Don't leave any debris or trash anywhere near your walk-in refrigerator
  • Make a quarterly inspection of door hinges and seals. Seals must close properly and hinges need to be lubricated. Never prop a door open for a long period of time. Make certain that the door is properly closed at all times when not in use
  • Monitor the temperature every day. If you notice a fluctuation in temperature it could mean that something isn't functioning correctly. Updated control systems for coolers frequently record and store years of operational history to help technicians to be able to diagnose problems. These cooler systems also have a strobe light which will flash if it detects a potential problem
  • Consult with a refrigeration technician on what he recommends for a scheduled program of maintenance. You should schedule regular routine upkeep to make certain that everything is functioning correctly. Early detection of any problems can help you to avoid any expensive emergency situations.

Walk-in freezers and food service coolers can be a major help to many businesses, for more information contact the team at SRC Refrigeration today.
