Understanding and Preventing Mold Growth in Walk-In Coolers: Everidge’s Innovative Solution

Share This:

In the fast-paced world of foodservice, operators grapple with a myriad of challenges, among them the silent threat of mold growth within walk-in coolers. Mold not only compromises food quality but also poses risks of significant food waste and revenue loss. Everidge®, a leader in innovative solutions for the industry, tackles this issue head-on with its groundbreaking Mold Resistant Walk-In, integrating three exclusive cutting-edge technologies: Everidge UV Pro by Aerapy, SmartRite® Walk-In Monitor System, and Sanisteel®.

Unveiling the Mold Menace
Mold is a pervasive issue for foodservice operators nationwide, with its adaptability allowing it to thrive even in cold environments like walk-in coolers. Contrary to popular belief, cold temperatures only slow down mold growth, rather than stopping it altogether. Mold spores persistently seek out food sources, settling on surfaces within coolers and propagating rapidly, especially in areas with inadequate ventilation and fluctuating humidity levels. The result is widespread contamination, leading to significant financial losses for operators.

Meet the Mold Resistant Walk-In
Prevention is the cornerstone of mold control, and Everidge’s Mold Resistant Walk-In offers a holistic solution. By combining innovative technologies, this system provides a comprehensive defense against mold:


1. Everidge UV Pro by Aerapy: Utilizing UV-C light, this technology effectively eliminates mold spores and bacteria, offering thorough disinfection and extending the shelf life of perishable items.




2. SmartRite Walk-In Monitor System: Continuous monitoring of temperature and humidity levels via a mobile app enables operators to promptly address deviations, preventing the formation of mold-friendly conditions.

Practical Steps for Mold Prevention
Educating operators about mold prevention is essential in combating its growth. Implementing practical measures such as maintaining optimal humidity levels, ensuring proper ventilation, and conducting regular cleaning and inspections can significantly reduce the risk of mold infestation. Everidge’s Mold Resistant Walk-In complements these efforts, providing an additional layer of protection against mold growth.

Investing in Everidge’s comprehensive approach not only minimizes food waste and revenue loss but also ensures a safe and hygienic environment for storing perishable items.
