Brendoncare are a leading provider of care homes in the south of England, specialising in dementia, respite and nursing care. They operate 10 care home centres, each with various refrigeration systems.
It was important for Brendoncare that their existing refrigeration systems, particularly the temperature-controlled storage areas in the canteens, remained in good condition all year round to keep ingredients, meat and fruit and veg fresh.
Cold Control has worked with Brendoncare for several years, servicing and maintaining their refrigeration systems across a number of their sites. In 2019, Cold Control was appointed as Brendoncare’s sole contractor to provide pre-planned and reactive maintenance services for 7 of their care home centres across the south.
Each care home had different refrigeration systems, which meant Cold Control had to treat each centre individually to provide the most cost-effective maintenance solutions that suited that particular site’s requirements and budget.
All 7 care home centres benefit from bi-annual servicing for their existing refrigeration equipment, which includes general maintenance of the units to ensure optimum performance, checking of refrigerant levels and cleanliness.
Alongside the ongoing maintenance service, Cold Control is also on standby 24 hours a day for emergency breakdown and repairs to ensure minimal disruption to meal preparations. Where system parts are deemed beyond repair, Cold Control is on hand to source and install replacements when required.
“We are very pleased with the service provided by Cold Control. They react quickly to any callouts, maintenance and servicing requirements. The team are always very polite and go the extra mile to ensure our systems are performing to their best. We would highly recommend Cold Control to other care homes.”
