How often should you clean your refrigeration system?

August 23rd, 2021

If you own a business that uses a commercial refrigeration system, you know how dramatic a breakage can be Indeed, the malfunction of your refrigeration system could be the source of financial loss, food waste and even food poisoning for your customers. You definitely don’t want that to happen. The following blog post will attempt to answer the question of how often you should clean up your system. In fact, properly cleaned appliances will certainly last longer and have less chance of breaking.

The right gestures

Frequent defrosting and cleaning of your refrigeration system is essential. The purpose of these healthy hygiene measures is to prevent the appearance of foul odours and problems that could affect the proper functioning of the appliance and therefore the safety of food products. Defrost should be done approximately every three months. This frequency is favourable to the good preservation of food and to the improvement of the energy performance of the appliance, therefore to a reduction in the electricity bill. When it comes to cleaning, it’s next to impossible to overwash a commercial refrigerator.

For effective cleaning, you should use specialized products recommended by your refrigeration system supplier. Clean, rinse, and remember to dry all racks, drawers, shelves and walls, including rubber gaskets. Residual moisture could damage the various components of your refrigeration system and possibly reduce its performance. Once the interior has been disinfected, don’t neglect the exterior. Again, use the cleaning products recommended by your supplier and follow the same steps as for the inside of your device. Even if the exterior is not in contact with food, the grease and dust that collects can end up weakening the components. In addition, fingerprints or other dirt do not give customers a very good impression.

Better to prevent

It is good to know the right things to do when it comes to cleaning, but prevention should not be neglected. Remember to pack your food carefully. This way you will avoid liquid spills as much as possible which, when drying, becomes very difficult to clean. In addition, packaging your food carefully will greatly reduce the risk of cross-contamination, which will protect your customers.

Call on professionals

You can also call on professionals for refrigeration systems to ensure cleaning and maintenance. You can also ask them any questions you have about cleaning or what products you should use to get the best results. A well-maintained refrigeration system is the key to optimum performance and extended life. So never hesitate to contact professionals to make sure you’re doing the right thing. Prevention is always less expensive than neglect.
