The Real Implications of an Unsanitary Restaurant Equipment

The Real Implications of an Unsanitary Restaurant Equipment

Neglecting restaurant equipment maintenance starts a chain of events you don’t want to happen.

It might be easy to leave the dirty dishes in the sink for a couple of days at home, but letting unsanitary restaurant equipment remain dirty for days is another story. Each country has restaurant hygiene standards that every restaurant must follow. Nonetheless, there are good reasons to keep your commercial kitchen equipment clean and well-serviced. A closer look reveals a chain reaction of events that ultimately does not end well. 

Inefficient Restaurant Equipment

Unsanitary restaurant equipment has grease and grime on it and in it. Over time, dirt buildup can cause restaurant appliances to work harder than they have to to keep functioning at normal power. It will make it harder for your commercial kitchen crew to prepare cuisine for customers.

Higher Maintenance Costs

Overworked machines means more breakdowns. You shouldn’t want any breakdowns to occur, but you are more likely to have to pay for repairs if you do not clean your appliances. Anything from commercial mixers to commercial ovens can feel the effect. 

Shorter Equipment Lifespan

Regardless of how many repairs you perform, your commercial kitchen equipment will have a shorter lifespan. You will need to replace equipment more frequently, which will cost your business much more.

Compromised Menu

Cooking with compromised restaurant equipment translates to a compromised menu. Your menu might promise delicious, healthful cuisine, but what comes out of the kitchen will likely be substandard and possibly laced with germs.

Unsanitary Ice

Ice makers are a significant part of any restaurant, as ice is an essential part of most restaurant beverages. Failing to clean the ice machine routinely will result in a buildup of mold and bacteria, which will create unsanitary ice.

Sickness in the Community

Unsanitary restaurant equipment leads to inefficient machinery, which leads to substandard and possibly hazardous food and beverages. Food poisoning will result from food and ice, which results in sickness in the community.

Potential Lawsuits

Severe food poisoning and even death from a restaurant’s cuisine can result in lawsuits. Some people might choose to file a lawsuit against a restaurant that has caused a loss of life, health, and the ability to work.

Business Closure

Ultimately, a food poisoning scare can make businesses large and small lose substantial revenue and their reputation. It can take years to recover from the losses. To avoid this chain of events, practice preventative maintenance for your restaurant equipment.
