If you run a restaurant or have a butcher's shop, you must rely on a walk-in freezer-- an awesome, large space for you to store your food products that you need to keep cold. However, walk-in freezer's tend to be difficult to clean due to the fact that any water that you use is going to freeze relatively quickly and leave even more of a mess. Here are some tips for cleaning your walk-in freezer.
1. How to Clean Your Freezer Floor:
The first thing that you are going to want to keep clean is your freezer floor. You want to keep your floor clean in order to make sure that there are no obstructions or potential hazards as people are walking around and moving items out or in. You might find that your traditional methods of cleaning, such as using a mop or hand scrubbing the floors, is not going to cut it because the water freezes too quickly. The best thing that you can do is to pour boiling water that has soap in it on the floor of the freezer.
The boiling water will sanitize the floor. While you wait for the water to freeze, use an industrial scrub brush to scrub the floor to the best of your ability. Once the water freezes, use the blunt end of the brush to break up the layer of ice on the floor into chunks. Then, sweep the ice chunks out of the freezer and throw them in your back yard to allow them to melt or throw them away.
2. Door Gaskets
Take a rag and soak it in water. Then, heat it in the microwave. If the rag is too hot for you to easily touch, allow the rag to cool for a minute or two. Once it is just cool enough for you to touch, apply dish washing soap. Immediately start scrubbing the door gaskets in order to make sure that they do not build up too much grime for them to function. Every time that you sense the rag getting cool enough to potentially freeze, make sure that you stop and either reheat the rag or heat another rag. Try to clean your door gaskets once or twice a month in order to keep them in peak working form at all times.

Hello. My name is Josiah. I am a 44-year-old married dad of three. I work in the automotive industry and love what I do. Recently, my heating and cooling unit stopped working. I did a lot of research on what type of heating element I should install in my home. I wanted something energy efficient, yet reliable and lasting. After a lot of research, I settled on a heat pump. A heat pump is a great heating and cooling element that many people don't yet know about. I created this blog to help educate other people on heat pumps and answer questions related to it. If you need a new heating or cooling device for your home, I hope my website helps explain to you what a heat pump is and how it can be beneficial.
