Do you know how to take care of your cooler and freezer gaskets? Do your employees (servers, hosts, line cooks etc.) know how to take care of your door gaskets? Commercial door gasket seals need maintenance. Back of the house as well as front of the house employees need to be informed and educated to prolong the gasket life.
What happens when someone spills soda on the counter and it drips down the refrigerated case door? If that soda is not cleaned up right away it can and will damage the door gasket. Employees will open and close the unit causing the gasket to stick to the unit. Each time that door is opened, the stickiness pulls harder on the gasket and the gasket will eventually tear.
Spills on gaskets should be wiped up right away with a non-abrasive cleaner such as dish detergent. Abrasive cleaners can slowly eat away at your gasket causing it to lose integrity. The door gasket will eventually tear, get “eaten away”, warp etc.
