If you run a restaurant or a catering company, you’ve got too much to worry about to be concerned about your commercial kitchen and catering gear. But neglecting commercial kitchen maintenance can have a number of adverse affects that can end up costing you down the line. Whether you’re looking for help with your kitchen planning and layout or want some help with your current commercial kitchen design, here are some tips for taking care of your equipment, and finding a service that can help you access the maintenance you need.
One of the first areas you should focus on in any commercial kitchen are the walls: hygienic wall cladding reduces the amount of bacteria present in a kitchen and also provides an easy surface for cleaning. This limits the amount of bacteria that can possibly transfer to food. Additionally, commercial kitchen wall cladding is often cheaper than conventional tiles.
Next, consider your tools, from your commercial refrigeration equipment to your commercial kitchen extraction canopy. Almost all of your equipment should be cleaned and repaired by a professional at least twice a year; commercial ventilation hoods, for example, should be cleaned twice a year for safety and sanitation reason. Commercial catering ovens, on the other hand, should be calibrated at least once a month to ensure regular high performance.
You should also consider having the rest of your equipment professionally cleaned and maintained as well: while harsh chemicals can often damage the finish or structure of a commercial refrigerator, professional cleaners are often equipped with proper tools to ensure that commercial kitchen equipment will not be damaged. Additionally, by having a service on call to ensure that your equipment is clean and functioning, you are less likely to need repairs, or be left waiting for a company repair man to arrive in time for you to prepare food.
So, whether you’re trying to plan out a kitchen or want to redesign one already built, there are a number of tools and services to help you do it: hygienic kitchen wall cladding, for example, is cheaper than conventional tiles and can decrease the spread of bacteria in your establishment. And by hiring a professional cleaning and maintenance service, your equipment will perform better and last longer. If you were looking for help with your kitchen, you’ve found it: now go build an amazing commercial kitchen.
