    This is some really good information about slip and falls from things like refrigerators. My grandmother has been having some issues with falling lately. It is good to know that we should make sure that her refrigerator and freezer isn’t leaking. It is good to know that it would be smart to have an expert inspect for her home for other slip and fall issues.

    It’s interesting to know that dirty condenser coils can cause overheating of your commercial refrigerator. My brother bought a restaurant recently, and we are looking for advice about how to give maintenance to his refrigerators. I will call a professional for a checkup to keep the refrigerators at my brother’s restaurant working properly.

    Thanks for explaining how dirty coils can cause overheating. My friend is thinking about building a freezer room for his new restaurant. I’ll tell him to make sure that he keeps the coils clean for when he has a freezer room built.
