Normal Good Repair and Proper Adjustm N/A N/A N/A The hinges on the door of the walk in cooler need repair/adjustment or replacement so that the door closes completely after entry and exit.

As discussed an additional self closer for the top of door can be installed if you choose to, the gasket on the gasket on the upright freezer in the bakery is torn. Once torn it is no longer cleanable. Replace split gasket. The concrete floor in the back corridor of the basement is uneven causing water to pond in this area.
