Planned Preventative Maintenance

It’s easy to forget the importance of commercial kitchen maintenance with so much involved in running a busy catering business. However, PPM (or Planned Preventative Maintenance) is one key step in increasing a business’ safety and longevity.

By taking certain measures, owners can ensure their equipment is always operating to its highest potential. And, by identifying any weak points in the kitchen early on, it can help owners avoid costly repairs or replacements down the line.

Nova Catering Repairs can help you design a preventative maintenance schedule personal to your kitchen to help you keep your appliances working at their best

    Kitchen Appliances breaking down

    Whilst all appliances face the risk of breaking down, it is commonly found that frequently used equipment, such as cookers, fryers, dishwashers, and refrigeration appliances, are at a higher risk of facing downtime.

    These units can determine whether your commercial kitchen can open for service or not, therefore it is important that they are well cared for so that your kitchen faces as little interruption as possible.

    Though not a requirement of your kitchen, a twice-annual PPM is recommended, or once a year as a minimum.

    Nova Catering Repairs provide professional maintenance services for all types of catering equipment; this includes checking your equipment is working efficiently and is safe to use, and moreover to detect potential causes for total breakdown in your equipment.

    Nova Catering Repairs will supply our customers with a condition report following your kitchen maintenance services - providing clarity that can help you plan budgets, provide evidence for the HSE, and help your kitchen run as efficiently as possible.

    PPM is a common acronym for Planned Preventative Maintenance - the regular scheduling, and conduction, of maintenance checks on your equipment.
