Commercial kitchens are no less than a battlefield due to the constant rush, permanent fire hazards, sharp tools, and the responsibility of serving delicious, well-presented food to customers. Thriving in the food industry in Canada is a significant challenge, requiring the best team, location, menu, and, of course, a functional commercial kitchen! To ensure the smooth running of your kitchen, LDI Technical Services Ltd, based in Calgary, offers 24/7 emergency repair services and recommends their planned maintenance (PM) programs, customized to each commercial kitchen’s needs.

What Is Planned Maintenance (PM) Programs?

The PM Program is a regular maintenance service for commercial kitchen equipment that ensures every critical component functions appropriately. Commonly known as preventive maintenance, it helps avoid service interruptions during peak hours. A malfunctioning oven at lunchtime or a broken refrigerator during a gala dinner, forcing you to serve warm champagne, would be worse than a nightmare!

While immediate repairs may seem more urgent, consistent preventative maintenance plans are the key to successful service at any time and during any season. LDI Technical Services Ltd’s planned maintenance programs can keep your kitchen running smoothly. Here are the reasons their regular kitchen equipment checkups are essential:

  • The High Cost of Reactive Repairs Unexpected repairs can be stressful, costly, and disruptive. Emergency service calls often come with premium charges, and rush delivery of replacement parts can further inflate costs. Moreover, appliance malfunctions leading to downtime can negatively impact customer satisfaction and revenue.

  • A Proactive Approach Preventative maintenance changes the game. By scheduling regular checkups, skilled technicians can proactively identify and address minor issues before they escalate into major repairs. It's like giving your kitchen a tune-up.
