Clean, degrease and replace as needed.
Deep cleaning should be an essential element of your commercial kitchen maintenance scheduling. Moving and cleaning behind equipment as well as daily cleaning performed by staff will help reduce other maintenance issues down the line. You should also talk to your MaintenX team about replacing air filters, cleaning pipes, and scheduling other specialized cleaning services.
Maintain your ventilation system.
The ventilation system is one of the most important yet overlooked systems in commercial kitchens. It is responsible for the safety and comfort of your staff, and therefore should be regularly cleaned and checked. Commercial kitchens require much more frequent HVAC checks than typical facilities or residential buildings. Talk to your MaintenX technicians about setting up a proper maintenance schedule based on the demand and age of your facility.
Schedule refrigeration inspections.
If a refrigerant leak or power outage occurs, your refrigeration system will suffer tremendously. You don’t want to lose money because perishable goods spoil in the refrigerator, so be sure to keep up with preventative care on your refrigerator. Clean, inspect, and check all essential refrigerant parts to ensure a breakdown never occurs.
