After the extended summer break it isn’t unusual for commercial catering engineers, like Tower, to get called out to schools and colleges to re-start some equipment.
Ovens & flight dishwashers, and other key pieces which have been worked hard during term time, deep cleaned and then left sitting for up to a couple of months don’t always start-up without problems. Not unlike many cars which have been driven hard & then left unused for a few months.
The process of cleaning can itself cause problems if the equipment is simply cleaned and then left. We always recommend that after a deep clean catering equipment is fired up again to ensure that everything functions properly and that any moisture is removed prior to an extended shut down.
