Rack Maintenance Tips

Keeping your industrial kitchen racks clean and properly maintained not only can help you keep them in great shape and help them last longer, but it can also ensure your kitchen is up to health and safety code standards. But rack maintenance doesn’t have to be difficult, here are some tips you can use to take care of your racks easier!

Keep your racks clean of food and other debris. After each day, or a few times a week, be sure to wipe down your racks to remove any residue or food debris from the racks. This will help keep them from becoming unsanitary and allow them to perform to their best ability. Make sure you remove food from the bottom of the racks to help keep them clean. You will also want to wipe down the slides and ensure the pans are completely clean before the next use. This will ensure that pans are easy to slide onto the racks as well as remove, without getting stuck or caught be debris.

Caster Maintenance Tips

Doing regular maintenance on the casters of your racks can help to keep them from wearing out as quickly and allow you to avoid any accidents. When doing maintenance on your casters one thing you want to be sure to do is tighten the bolts and nuts. If they are loose, this could cause your rack to not work properly and accidents to happen more easily. Check the mounting bolts as well to ensure that the caster, and therefore the wheel, is securely attached to the rack. If a caster becomes too loose and a wheel falls off or stops functioning the way it should, you will be cleaning up a lot of spilt food! You will also want to clean the casters and remove and debris from the nooks and crannies. This will help ensure you keep your kitchen clean and up to code.
