Maintaining Your Bar Equipment

Just like with your restaurant kitchen, keeping your bar equipment clean and maintained is important for running a successful bar. A dirty or run-down bar will drive customers away. They'll find a nicer, cleaner place to take their business if you don't take pride in your establishment and keep it in tip-top shape. In today's blog, Fast Fix LLC offers a few tips for maintaining your bar to keep those customers happy and flowing in.

Keeping Up on Equipment 

Bar equipment is a big investment, so it's important to keep the equipment maintained. Due to the fact that there's so much liquid passing through a bar, it's essential to keep your equipment up-to-date and fully functioning. Be sure to train your staff about the importance of maintaining your equipment to avoid costly repairs. When a repair is needed, however, you can count on Fast Fix LLC to get it done fast - we offer 24/7 emergency service, which is important to a busy, fast-paced establishment like a bar. In addition to fixing immediate issues, you should consider a maintenance plan where a professional comes in to inspect and maintain your equipment regularly. It could save you a lot of money in the long run on costly repairs due to neglect of the equipment.

Cleaning Your Bar 

Cleanliness is important to any business in the food-service industry. However, unlike a kitchen, customers can typically physically see the condition of your bar. This makes keeping everything nice and clean an utmost priority. Keeping a bar maintained is a continuous task. Alcohol can stain a bar top, so be sure to keep it wiped down and dry. One item that's often overlooked, mats should be cleaned several times a day. You should also wipe down the bottles after every shift. Sticky bottles lead to dirty hands, and clean hands are important for anyone handling drinks and/or food that will be going out to customers. The floors should also be kept clean by sweeping and mopping everyday. Cleaning and maintenance doesn't just apply to the top of the bar and the visible aspects. It's also important to strip down the tubes and pipes on a regular basis. Taps and beer lines can become especially dirty, which can ruin the taste of a delicious craft beer.

With your equipment functioning at the highest level and an immaculately clean space, running your bar will be much easier and more efficient.
