    I can’t say I have really seen any articles about cleaning a fridge. People do not realize how dirty the fridge can get, especially in a commercial environment where you have boat loads of people bringing and storing their own food. The biggest problem with the fridge, is that certain bacteria, or more importantly, fungi can quickly grow in this area. And if you are bringing food from one fridge to another, it just greats an absolute mess. Keeping your fridge clean should be one of the number one things in everyone’s ‘cleaning" lives. Especially when it comes to working environments. This is why we always recommend that your commercial cleaning service provider focuses on this area. Great article.
