Issues with your commercial refrigeration can sneak up on you. It starts with refrigeration feeling less cold, and one day, you find it has failed. Many people think the temperature difference is negligible and delay calling for repairs. Unfortunately, that delay can result in the catastrophe of a busy restaurant and no cooling power. Here is why you need to call for commercial refrigeration service in Delaware as soon as possible when you find equipment irregularities in your food service establishment.
Never a small problem
Maintaining commercial refrigeration is essential for any food or food-related industry. It makes the difference between a regular stream of loyal patrons and unhappy customers who experience one case of food poisoning and advertise their displeasure all over the online review sites. The effects of low food integrity are immense and can compromise your bottom line. In addition, you can also face liability issues from lawsuits and inspection fines. Many businesses have failed because of these incidents and in many cases, it was just one incident and not a series of them that did that.
You also lose money because, when cooling fails, you lose inventory. Meat and cheese that is inadequately cooled cannot be sold or served to the public. When you have no choice but to throw away spoiled inventory, that is the same as throwing $20 bills into a dumpster. Inventory that once promised to bring you money now costs you more.
The best way to avoid ignoring changes in your refrigeration equipment is to install reliable thermometers. You will know any changes in temperature are real, and when they become dramatic, that is a sign to call for help immediately. The same is true if you detect excess condensation, leaks in the door seals or other items that reduce efficiency and make maintaining temperature more difficult for your appliances. Preventative action always causes less stress than reactive action, so call when you detect a problem rather than when it has become serious.
Expertise is best
Trust your instincts and install the right monitoring equipment. If you notice your equipment is not functioning as it normally would, call a repair technician. It is better to discover it was nothing than to ignore it and experience another problem later. You handle food in that appliance every day, and it is not unreasonable to assume you will notice changes.
Also know that commercial refrigeration repairs are not a do-it-yourself project. Even if you have made minor repairs to dryers, dishwashers and even your home refrigerator before, commercial equipment is very different from what you keep at home. Reduced cooling results from several causes, including worn-out coils and dead fans. Experienced repair technicians diagnose these problems quickly and know how to repair them. You do not have time to fumble with a freezer or refrigerator and make customers happy. Focus on your business and allow us to handle your equipment shortcomings.
