Emergency Catering Repairs in Suffolk

Planned Preventative Maintenance in Suffolk

Kitchen emergencies do happen, but they can be minimised by implementing an effective planned preventative maintenance (PPM) schedule. This will see us visiting your premises at predetermined dates to service your most important pieces of equipment, catching any problems early and potentially preventing a disastrous breakdown further down the line.

We work with many businesses in Suffolk and the wider region, ensuring their kitchen machinery is in great working order. Many businesses also need regular maintenance as part of their insurance, and others carry it out to ensure the safety of their staff and customers. PPM also helps your appliances last longer, cutting down on expensive replacements.

We’re able to advise you on exactly how often different pieces of appliances need to be serviced, so please contact us to find out more. Investing in PPM is something every business owner in Suffolk should prioritise!

Benefits of Regular Catering Equipment Maintenance

Pre-empt and Prevent

Scheduling routine catering equipment maintenance allows you to avoid potential breakdowns by identifying problems when they first arise, dealing with them promptly and efficiently to minimise the threat of bigger issues later down the line.

Compliance and Safety

Maintenance and repair work is necessary to ensure that your kitchen is compliant with the relevant regulatory standards. For one thing, well-maintained equipment means less risk of a fire. Staff safety should be a priority, and this means ensuring your equipment is performing as it should.

Extend the Lifespan of Your Equipment

Appliances and machines that are looked after properly will continue to perform for longer and you’re less likely to encounter breakdowns. Regular maintenance stops deterioration and maximises efficiency. Professional catering equipment maintenance is, therefore, an important way of protecting your investment. And well-maintained equipment also has a better resale value should you want to pass your equipment on at a later date.

Save Money

By dramatically reducing the risk of future breakdown and the disruption and downtime it entails, you save money in the long term. While unanticipated breakdowns can lead to lost revenue and disappointed customers, high-performing equipment is efficient, allows for a smooth operation and consistently delivers a quality service, boosting customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Planned Preventative Maintenance FAQs

We recommend that you have your commercial kitchen equipment serviced at least every 6 months. This ensures that it remains in the best possible condition and that any issues are identified before they become problems that could lead to disruption for your business.

Maintaining catering equipment is not just a question of keeping it clean, although this is important. You also should organise regular inspections of the equipment by knowledgeable engineers who will ensure that everything is in working order and proactively deal with any problems before they start affecting your operations.

Routine maintenance of commercial catering equipment is not just important to ensure that the machines work as they should but to also save money in the long term. Keeping everything working smoothly and dealing with small faults when they first arise reduces the risk of serious breakdowns later on. You’ll enjoy better food quality, your staff will enjoy a more efficient and safer working environment, and your equipment will enjoy an extended life span.
