Your Best Guide to Cleaning and Maintaining Your Commercial Catering Equipment and Making it Last

When you have a business, you make an investment in the business – whether it’s investing in equipment, investing in real estate and property, investing in staff and workers, and so on. But whatever equipment you are using for your business is a definite investment, and you want to make sure that the equipment will last so that your investment is more than worth it in the end. If you are involved in the commercial catering industry, you will definitely have commercial catering equipment, and for this expensive investment to be worthwhile, you should make sure that it is appropriately and adequately cleaned and maintained. Here, then, is the best way to clean and maintain your commercial catering equipment so that you can make it last.

Follow the guidelines from the manufacturer

You can’t really compare commercial catering equipment to ordinary household and kitchen appliances – they are not built in the same way, and they are not used in the same way, either. So if you think that you can treat your commercial catering equipment in the same way (by doing away with the manufacturer’s instructions, that is), think again. The instructions and guidelines from the manufacturer are essential, as they will usually include a schedule for cleaning and maintenance, and warranty details as well. You should also make it a point to regularly update the service records of all your equipment just in case you have issues in the future.

Set a regular schedule for cleaning

One of the vital aspects of being sure your commercial catering equipment stays in tip-top condition is to set a regular schedule for cleaning, as specialists and experts in commercial catering equipment in London recommend. Even if you think your equipment doesn’t need it, you should still establish a cleaning schedule every day. Your employees should follow this cleaning schedule and make sure to follow the guidelines for the specific appliance or piece of equipment as well. It would also be a good idea for you to do spot inspections so that you can monitor if your employees follow the standards you have set in place.  This way, you can avoid costly repairs due to improper cleaning and maintenance.

Make use of a soak tank

There is some equipment which may require more thorough cleaning on a regular basis, and for this, you can make use of a soak tank. A soak tank, also known as a decarbonising tank, makes use of chemicals, so grease and other residue are removed from the equipment. Soak tanks are quite useful for the removal of grease from all kinds of metal equipment used for cooking, which includes extractor grills. You also have the option to hire or purchase a soak tank depending on your needs.

Benefit from regular servicing

Of course, you need to have regular servicing for your equipment as well. Even though you are making sure that your equipment is cleaned on a regular basis, there will be times when large equipment such as stoves and ovens need to be disassembled, and this is best done by a professional.
