Clean door seals and gaskets regularly with soap and water. Remove any build up debris or sticky liquids. Avoid harsh chemical cleaners which may affect the integrity of the seals. If a seal is damaged, replace it. A refrigerator or freezer that does not seal well will be exposed to a myriad of problems which over time will lead to costly repairs.
- Keep the condensing unit working at optimum levels by ensuring condensing coils are clean and that the areas around your evaporators and condensing units are clear to ensure proper airflow. For walk in coolers, do not allow trash or other debris to accumulate around the walk-in.
