From time to time, we all experience a strange odour coming from the fridge. This is an easy problem to sort out and best dealt with quickly, especially if you are experiencing the problem in a commercial kitchen.
What causes it?
There can be several reasons for fridge odour. If food is left to rot in the fridge, a smell is highly likely; the longer it’s left, the harder it will be to get rid of. Another possible source is the drip pan found at the bottom of the fridge that is meant to collect condensation within the appliance. If you leave this water for a long time, smells and mould can develop, so it is important to empty it out regularly. Keeping your fridge at the right temperature can also help. The Food Standards Agency provides information regarding optimum fridge temperatures.
