It is important for any restaurant or other type of food service establishment that their commercial appliances are always working and always performing at its best. If not, then this could lead to a host of problems and the worst being reduced customer satisfaction. Unhappy customers that are left waiting above normal wait times for their meals will complain not just to the manager of the restaurant, but also to all their friends and family. So even though you just made one person unhappy, now quite a few people know about the poor service your establishment delivered. And in some cases you may have just lost a customer or potential customers for good.
While what we just discussed was the worst case scenario of what could happen if your restaurant equipment fails on a busy night, we just wanted to show the importance of regular maintenance and servicing that is needed to keep your appliances running efficiently and without failure. If you have invested a lot of money into your equipment, which you probably did, you need to maintain them if you want to avoid commercial appliance repair problems.
Manufacturers and industry experts will all recommend that businesses invest in doing regular maintenance that’s conducted by a trained repairman. Routine maintenance will help to minimize the cost of having to buy new equipment, parts won’t wear down as quickly, breakdowns will be reduced drastically and you can expect high efficiency and high performance day in and day out.
Cleaning is an important part of daily maintenance as food spills can reduce performance, such as blocking the burners on a stove. On commercial fryers that are not cleaned daily, they can accumulate gunk which can reduce the performance of the fryer, which causes it to use more energy and that will mean that your electric bill will be higher and the fryer could eventually corrode.
