As the doors to many workplace kitchens open again, there will be new challenges for caterers. How will cleaning regimes change and how has the shutdown affected your kitchen? By combining the cleaning regime and regular maintenance, you can bring real benefits to your kitchen.
Combined deep cleaning and maintenance helps you to:
- Be more time efficient
- Reduce equipment breakdowns
- Limit the number of different people in the kitchen
- Reduce the paperwork
Kitchen equipment is a big investment, so protecting it from breakdowns and prolonging its life is important. Professional deep cleaning and regular maintenance can both help. But, by choosing one supplier to provide both cleaning and maintenance, you can save time. Just one phone call to book in both services, one invoice and one point of contact.
Nip potential problems in the bud
Imagine having to disappoint hungry staff members because your oven or dishwasher has broken down! Regular maintenance means potential problems can be spotted and repaired before a breakdown occurs.
At TWO Services, we provide both deep cleaning and maintenance services. If we spot something that doesn’t look right during a deep clean, we can have one of our engineers come out to take a look. By nipping problems in the bud, you can avoid more costly repairs or equipment breakdowns.
Refrigeration and freezer units can often be overlooked, but they have to constantly battle against the surrounding heat to keep food chilled to optimum temperatures. Don’t ignore problems, because if they’re picked up early, it could mean a new door seal rather than a whole new chiller.
Limiting the number of people in your kitchen
At the moment, we all have to be mindful of the contact we have with others. Ordinarily, you may have a team come to the kitchen to deep clean. Then you call another company to get a quote for a kitchen maintenance visit. They may need to send someone out to look at the kitchen before they can quote.
At TWO Services, if we’ve deep cleaned a kitchen, we can complete a maintenance check without having to send someone else out to quote. We’ll just add the cost onto the same invoice. No additional visits to you, just an expert team at a time to suit you.
Reduce the paperwork
As a caterer, you’ll need to manage the menu, the suppliers, health & safety requirements, staffing issues, and more. If you combine the cleaning and maintenance, you can save time and reduce the paperwork. One call, one invoice and one point of contact.
When you deep clean a kitchen, you really get to understand how a kitchen is being used. You are more likely to spot potential problems and reduce the need for caterers to replace equipment.
Twice the protection
Don’t gamble on deep cleaning being enough. To keep a kitchen running efficiently and safely, regular deep cleaning and maintenance is needed. Our maintenance plans are flexible and can be offered on a 6 or a 12-month basis.
We also advise that ductwork checks are carried out quarterly, but at a minimum, every 6 months.
