Restaurant Equipment Experts Explain How to Care for Your Walk-In Cooler, Virginia Beach, Virginia

Given that it can be a huge sales driver, your walk-in cooler is a vital piece of restaurant equipment, and it's important to keep it functioning at its best. For more family-oriented establishments, the coolers are home to irresistible desserts such as ice cream and gelato. In other businesses, they may store everything from beer to floral arrangements.

A source of top-quality restaurant equipment since 1982, Tech-24 has vast experience when it comes to keeping walk-in coolers functioning at their best. Below, the equipment service experts share insight on how to keep walk-in coolers in optimum shape: 

  • restaurant equipmentRegular Inspections: Your walk-in cooler needs regular checkups to function at its best. Make a habit of checking this critical piece of restaurant equipment at least twice a year for corrosion and discoloration. Oil leaks can develop with these units, so keep an eye out for those as well; check the drain pan and remove all buildup and debris. 
  • Frequent Cleaning: A cooler needs to be cleaned regularly to function and perform efficiently. Use products appropriate for the cooler's specific function. An ice cream cooler, for example, will require different cleaning products from one used to house floral arrangements. Pressurized water can be helpful if the cooler's flooring permits. Check the evaporator coil, and wash away any residue. 
  • Take A Look At The Fans: Your cooler's motor can build up a large amount of heat when it's in operation, and its fans play a significant role in keeping temperatures from rising. Check in every few months to make sure the fans are free of obstruction, and take a look to see if they show signs of wear. Replacement is called for if the fan's blades are bent or cracked.
