Your walk-in cooler is one most essential aspects of any reputable restaurant. However, given how busy certain days can be, it is a struggle to remember to clean and reorganize that aspect of your establishment. However, this doesn’t mean that all hope is lost. There is a lot you can do to clean and take care of your walk-in cooler. Read on for a helpful guide for cleaning up your cooler to make it look presentable.
Begin by Cleaning It Up
Cleaning the walk-in cooler is just as key as cleaning each other area of your restaurant. By being responsible in this area of the house, you can make sure that all of your cooking supplies, equipment, and ingredients will not be accidentally contaminated by bacteria that you’re unable to see, and even under any ultraviolet light. Mopping the floors and soaking up any stains and spills is not going far enough. Cleaning out the shelves and hitting each corner, even the ones that are not readily visible, is something that you can not neglect.
Consider some Applicable Upgrades
Upgrading your shelving inside your walk-in cooler is a smart and worthwhile investment. A bit of humidity and too much weight can take a significant toll on your shelves, especially if it has been many years since your last upgrade. Vented shelving and dunnage racks are a few options that you could explore. Whichever shelving changes that you do make, you still must make sure that there is enough space between your bottom rack and your floor to make cleaning and disinfecting more easy.
End by Organizing
Finally, your time has come to reorganize your cooler. This will make it much easier for your employees to find the proper ingredients that they require. It can also cut back the risk of accidental contamination. Remember that the part of your cooler closest to the door will be the warmest, while the further away you go, the much colder it will be. Take care to avoid blocking out ventilation fans since that can cause a lot of more unexpected issues.
