Ice build-up in freezers can cause safety issues and damages that can be expensive to fix. The longer the build-up is left unresolved, the more hazardous it becomes. For walk-in freezers that store food, frost and ice can damage the food through freezer burn, compromising its safety, flavor, and texture. Ice and frost inside the freezer can indicate that the temperature is above optimal levels, which is not good for food safety. Excess moisture can also lead to rust or mold growth, which are health hazards and violations of health codes. Ice build-up can also damage the freezer’s components. As the ice melts and refreezes, it can spread throughout the interior, reducing the freezer’s lifespan. If the evaporator coils cannot function properly due to ice and frost, the freezer will overwork itself to maintain optimal temperatures, which can reduce its lifespan drastically. Ice and frost on the floor can create a hazardous environment that can lead to slip and fall accidents, which are among the most common workplace injuries in the U.S. Prevent injuries and potential lawsuits by addressing ice build-up as soon as you notice it. Ice build-up can be costly, as commercial walk-in freezers are expensive. Replacing one before its lifespan due to ice build-up can be a financial burden. Overworking freezers can be energy-inefficient and lead to higher energy bills. Throwing out food or other temperature-sensitive material due to ice build-up is also a waste of money.
