The new year is here, and not a moment too soon. After the holiday season, you may be tempted to sit back and relax. However, now is the perfect time to start getting your kitchen ready for the next busy season. Our team at All Temp can help with all your commercial kitchen needs in the new year. Here is what we recommend doing right now:
Give Your Kitchen a Deep Clean
Hopefully, your kitchen is being well maintained and cleaned every day. However, we understand that sometimes, things get busy, and cleaning shortcuts happen. First, you will want to make sure all utensils are properly cleaned for food preparation. Then, check your refrigeration and cooking equipment. Check parts that are used regularly, then take a more in depth look inside, outside and behind your appliances. The cleaner your appliances, the longer they will last. Setting time aside for a deep cleaning will ensure that your kitchen is in its best condition.
Schedule Maintenance for Your Kitchen Equipment
As someone who runs a commercial kitchen, you know the importance of having working equipment. The best way to keep your equipment running is by scheduling routine maintenance. Take the time now to schedule maintenance on your refrigerators, freezers, and any other equipment that could benefit from it. We recommend scheduling an appointment early to make sure to secure a time that works for you.
Repair or Replace Broken Appliances
If your equipment is under warranty, get it fixed! There is no reason to put off work that is covered under the manufacturer or under a warranty plan. If it is past the warranty period, get it fixed or replace it. Weigh the financial burden of repairing versus replacing before making your decision. Keep in mind, what starts off as a fixable issue can quickly become a reason to replace your equipment if ignored. Get the repairs you need now so you will be prepared when the daily rush returns.
Get Your HVAC System Checked
While you may not consider the HVAC system a priority, we can guarantee that your employees and customers do. Make sure to change air filters as needed, and have the system inspected to make sure it is not in need of repair. If it’s time, schedule routine maintenance. Like everything else at your business, your commercial HVAC system requires regular care to work efficiently.
At All Temp, we can help with inspections, maintenance, repair and installation of equipment in commercial kitchens. We also take care of commercial HVAC systems and offer emergency repairs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To learn more about our services, contact us online or give us a call at (407) 857-7800.
