A cold room is a vital component of any restaurant or food business’s operation. The last thing you want to happen is mould growth on the walls or ceiling of your cold room. And you certainly don’t want that to spread to the food. If your cold room is already prone to mould growth, here are some simple things you can do to remove it. If it’s not, here are some simple ways in which you can prevent mould growth from ever starting.
Mould growth is the result of moisture in the air. This is generally caused by warmer air entering the cold room and forming condensation on the walls. This then allows mould to grow. One of the causes of this might be cracked or damaged sealing around the door, which is allowing warm, humid air into the cold room.
The best way to manage a mould problem in your cool room is to stop it from ever starting. To do that make sure you:
If it’s too late and you already have mould regularly developing in your cold room, you’ll need to give it a thorough cleaning to make sure all the mould spores are eradicated. Here's how:
Mould spores can become airborne and will contaminate the whole cold room system if you’re not careful. Hiring a professional to clean out your cold room will ensure that all the mould is gone and is much less likely to return. A professional will also be able to properly clean out or replace the seals around your cold room door, as well as clean the compressor and internal components effectively.
Mould can be dangerous to your health. In fact, many people are allergic to mould spores. And, in large quantities, it will make almost anyone sick. The last thing you want is your customers and staff getting ill. Fortunately, with the right care or professional help, removing mould can be relatively painless and straightforward. If you stay vigilant and keep things clean, it’s a simple task to prevent mould from ever forming.
