The Benefits of Regular Equipment Maintenance

Regular equipment maintenance, also referred to as preventative maintenance, is an important part of any commercial kitchen program. The goal of a successful preventative maintenance program is to improve the performance, efficiency and safety of the equipment in your restaurant or other commercial kitchen. Keep reading to learn about some of the benefits of performing regular equipment maintenance from the premier restaurant equipment maintenance company in Missouri.

Benefits of Regular Equipment Maintenance

From employee safety to producing quality food for your customers, regular equipment maintenance has a lot of benefits, some that you may not even realize.

1. Lower Utility Costs. 

Improperly working equipment uses more energy than typically needed. If you see an increase in your electric bill without an easy explanation, chances are there's something wrong with one or more pieces of equipment in your commercial kitchen. Preventative maintenance can ensure your equipment is constantly working properly and efficiently, using a normal amount of energy and keeping your utility costs at a manageable level.

2. Breakdown Prevention. 

When your restaurant equipment breaks down, you don't just have to worry about the repair costs, you also need to be concerned with the downtime and how much that will cost your business. While equipment breakdowns happen unexpectedly, preventative maintenance can minimize that risk. By regularly checking your equipment, you can easily find small issues that could turn into larger problems if not corrected quickly.

3. Increased Kitchen Efficiency. 

Maintaining your restaurant equipment can also improve efficiency in your kitchen. Improperly working equipment can slow a meal service down. Appliances that use water are prone to limescale buildup which causes the equipment to operate less efficiently. Burners easily acquire grease buildup, which compromises their efficiency. A little routine maintenance can go a long way in keeping your commercial kitchen running efficiently and effectively.

4. Quality Food Production. 

If your restaurant equipment is dirty or not working properly, your food quality will suffer. You need to be able to produce great tasting food in a timely fashion in order to keep your customers happy and loyal. Creating a preventative maintenance plan is the best way to ensure your equipment isn't getting in the way of good quality food, and keep your customers coming back time and time again.

5. Extended Equipment Life. 

Commercial kitchen equipment is quite the investment. Once piece of equipment can set you back thousands of dollars. The longer the life you can get out of it the better. Regularly having your equipment serviced and tuned by a professional will increase the lifespan of your restaurant equipment, saving you money in the long run.
