Maintain Quality Food, Atmosphere and Reputation

Restaurant refrigeration equipment can be your best friend or your worst enemy.



Our Story

Check List

Keeping your restaurant equipment in tip top shape, and having it serviced on a regular basis is the lifeblood of your business. Restaurant owners can schedule a thorough cleaning of their entire refrigeration unit on a scheduled basis. As restaurants remove items from the interior, and place them in another unit or temporary system, we take care of the coils, the motors and the coils. 

We recommend that restaurants use soft brushes and scrub the shelves, along with the surface with warm water, soap or vinegar solution.  It helps to remove drawers and shelving, soak them in a vinegar solution and rinse them when clean.

Contracting Maintenance 


Services Refrigerator exteriors obviously need to be cleaned regularly, too.  Experts say it’s important to use proper cleaning solutions and materials on a stainless steel exteriors.  They say to avoid using abrasive scrubbers or sponges as well as chlorine cleaners. It is always recommended to use a washcloth or soft brush to clean the surface of refigerators. A combination of warm water and a vinegar or detergent-based solution works best for routine maintenance. If you need to remove grease or baked-on food, consider using a baking soda paste or an appropriate stainless steel degreaser.

Regularly Clean the Condenser Coils

Condenser Coils help serve fresh and appealing food. Refrigerators, freezers, coolers, chillers, and walk-in freezers, keep drinks chilled, food & greens fresh. and melted ice cream. When they break down, your business can quickly come to a screeching halt.

Don’t Panic

Many restaurants have experienced the anxiety (even panic) that occurs when a critical refrigeration unit goes down during a busy dinner shift. Money is lost and you can lose thousands of dollars in wasted product and lost business in a very short period of time. 

Stay On Top

Heating and air conditioning equipment needs to be cleaned and inspected a the least twice each year. Restaurant owners realize that refrigeration equipment needs TLC to keep working.

Frequency Settings

 If your refrigerator’s  temperature is set too high, your food could easily spoin or mold, and it might turn into a public health risk.

If the temperature is set lower than necessary, the unit works harder than it should and can shorten the life of your system.

Air Flow

Keep the area around equipment clear. Air flow blocked by debris or stacks of stuff can put a strain on the unit, causing it to run inefficiently and increase power consumption.

Cold Air Leaks

Monthly to quarterly maintenance and inspection tasks:

Schedule a professional refrigeration service company to do a detailed inspection, cleaning, and tune-up of all your refrigeration equipment. These tasks require the expertise of professionals who know what problems to look for. Keep in mind that attempting to do repairs yourself could void your equipment warranty.
