Cleaning and Maintaining a Cold Room

Cold rooms are essential for any company that sells, stores, or transports products that require temperature controlled conditions round the clock. This not only includes all types of perishable food such as fruit, produce, meat and dairy but also other products such as medication, plants, cosmetics, candles, and more.

It is critical that they are stored at the correct temperature to both ensure the product is kept in the best condition and to maintain shelf life and longevity. Without due care, you could risk deterioration of product or loss of stock, which for any business is also risking their reputation.

Cold rooms therefore play such a crucial role in your business’s performance. Routine cold room maintenance and cleaning is necessary and an important task. To keep the supply chain moving, you should be taking steps to ensure cold rooms are working their best at all times and more so on the run up to busy seasonal periods when stock levels are at their highest.

Cold Room Cleaning and Maintenance

Whilst it may be the case that you keep to a strict cleaning regime appropriate for the stock you hold, and clean up spillages as they happen, overtime the dust and debris from stock or vehicle particulate matter can bed into floor, walls, and ceilings, and need a more in-depth clean. There may be high level areas in the cold room which are hard for your cleaning teams to access. Staff should hold PASMA and IPAF qualifications to access the high-level areas.

Whilst the hygiene of the cold room is important, the temperature of the cold room is critical. The evaporators in the cold rooms should be stripped down and cleaned on a regular basis to ensure there is no blockage of ice or debris to restrict airflow, or blockages in the drains causing leaks, which could be a health and safety hazard.

Enlisting the help of a professional company to ensure you keep up to date with hygiene and Preventative Planned Maintenance (or PPM) is an efficient and cost-effective way of making sure your cold room is always working at peak performance.

Typically, this service includes checking that the cold room temperature remains stable when your cold room is fully-stocked, checking door seals for any signs of cracking, deterioration, or general wear and tear, and thoroughly cleaning out and inspecting the component parts of the evaporator, such as the evaporator fins, casing, fans and drains. A professional PPM service also includes a full check of the refrigeration system, ensuring the defrosting function works correctly, checking the compressors for oil leaks, and carrying out leak testing.
