How to look after your fridge
Though a fridge is an appliance that each and every household, food store, or catering business needs and has, not everyone gives it proper care. However, as it always comes with all appliances, poor or no maintenance at all leads to their early breakdowns. Unfortunately, repairs are always more expensive than regular maintenance. Especially, when it is about commercial fridge repair.
So, here are some maintenance tips that help you keep your fridge in good working order for a long time.
Clean it regularly
A dirty fridge may not lead directly to its insufficiency or early breakdown. However, it may threaten your health. Without regular cleaning, germs and bacteria get a perfect environment to multiply. As a result, goods get a foreign taste and smell and suffer quicker spoilage, creating dangerous health risks.
Always make sure a drain channel isn’t blocked and carefully clean it with a soft cloth if it is.
Check its seals
Seal or gasket is a long piece of rubber that you can see around the perimeter of your fridge door. It serves to prevent outside air gets inside a fridge when it is closed. The matter is outside air is always warm and if it penetrates into a fridge, your appliance has to work harder to cool it and maintain the temperature you set.

Why you need a gas safe engineer
Thus, you need a pro who is capable of installing, repairing, and checking them. A Gas Safe engineer is exactly a pro we are talking about. Why? Read further to understand the reasons.
This is your safety
When it comes to gas appliances, so many hazards lie in wait for you. Definitely, improper installation, repairs, or unqualified maintenance put your family and your premises at great risk.
First, it is about the shortened life span of your appliance. Second, it is about a gas explosion hazard that may crash not only your dwelling place but neighboured ones as well. Yes, some failures of your fueled devices may lead to this awful outcome. At last, it is about carbon monoxide poisoning that may do a lot of harm to you and your family members.
So, what would you prefer? To invite someone who just pretends he can perform gas works or an engineer who is attested and confirmed his proficiency. Of course, a Gas Safe registered engineer near you is what you need to feel safe and do not worry about possible risks. In other words, when you apply for gas works, you need to be sure everything will be done with great knowledge, experience, care, and attention to details.
This is your law-abiding
First, by law, only a Gas Safe engineer is allowed to perform gas works. So, if you intentionally hire someone who is not certified, you break the law as such works are illegal. Withdrawal of warranty by a manufacturer of your boiler, heater, or another unit is the most evident outcome you will suffer from.
Second, without using a registered engineer, you can’t get some important papers. Here, we touch two points that the UK legislation prescribes you to have in certain cases:
The first one is a must for every owner of gas boilers of other units. To clarify, it confirms your compliance with Building Regulations and ensures property safety. The second one is a must for landlords, who shall perform safety checks for their rental property on an annual basis. To clarify, it is the landlord’s duty to ensure his tenant’s safety.
At London Engineers Company, we certified our engineers who work with gas. So, call us if you need a gas installation, repair, maintenance, or safety check.

How to choose a glasswasher
However, to get the best from your investment, you need to choose a glasswasher that is right for your exact business.
Points to consider
Before you get started to study the glasswasher and dishwasher market, revise your business environment to understand what options you need. Here are four main points to consider:
Understand your wash needs
To clarify, you can buy a glasswasher or a dishwasher that serves as a glasswasher as well. Of course, if you have an unlimited budget, you can afford to purchase and install both units for your kitchen facility. However, if you are short in budget or want to invest with the highest ROI, it is worth to prioritising. That is to say, if you run a cocktail bar, a glasswasher is the only device you need.
On the contrary, for a café and restaurant purchasing a dishwasher is a better decision as they need to wash both glassware and tableware.
Identify your wash capacities
Here, you need to think about how many glasses you have and how many glasses you usually serve per hour in peak times. This gives you a clear picture of what production you require. Thus, you can be sure you acquire the unit of production that matches your business needs well.
Even though a wash cycle is around two minutes, you don’t want to make your customers wait these two minutes, do you? After all, in today’s rushing world every second makes a difference.
Understand your required load height
Load height a glasswashing machine provides determines what glasses you can clean here. For example, wine, champagne, whiskey, and beer glasses differ in their height. The matter is different appliances have different maximum load height.
For example, if you buy a one of 240mm, you may found out some of your glasses don’t fit the unit or risk to break when being cleaned. So, be aware of this aspect, measure your glassware height, and keep it in mind when choosing an appliance.
Assess your available space
To clarify, different makes and models have different dimensions. Your task is to find a unit that fits your space. Note, when assessing your available space and arranging allocation of a glasswasher, you need not only think about unit dimensions. Think about how you will arrange glasswasher repair if the emergency strikes.
Of course, if you have a dedicated washing area, the unit’s dimensions are of little concern. In other words, you can opt for a large appliance. However, if you are short in space, finding a unit of right dimensions can be a real challenge.
Glasswasher types to choose
The most common type of glasswasher is an undercounter glasswasher. This type is very convenient and easy to operate. Besides, due to its compact dimensions, such a machine can easily fit a small-spaced facility.
For certain undercounter units, production may reach up to 1500 glasses per hour and even more. Thus, this is an excellent option to equip your bar, café, or even a small restaurant. Typically, the wash cycle here is just a few minutes. Thus, they are highly efficient when it comes to glassware that is lightly soiled.
Also, glasswashers differ with the number of wash arms they are equipped with. To clarify, there are one-armed and two-armed machines. Units with two wash arms are a better choice. Having upper and lower wash arm, such appliances covers all areas and all the utensils within the load. Besides, they are more time-effective as two arms greatly reduce a wash cycle.
To sum up, there are many things to consider and many options to choose. Keep them in mind when selecting a glasswasher or a dishwasher with a similar functionality and you will find the one that is right for your case. If you still have any questions, feel free to call us and ask them. By the way, you can always count on us in installation, repair, and maintenance tasks.
