School Catering Equipment Fails after the Summer Holidays

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.
