Frequently asked questions
If you’re not sure where to start, here are some questions we get asked a lot.
- Do you offer maintenance contracts?
We offer a full range of pre-planned maintenance packages (PPM) to suit any commercial kitchen or budget from small independent restaurants to commercial catering. Our engineers will come out and regularly test and service your kitchen equipment and repair or replace any parts before they wear out or malfunction. This can include the servicing of ovens, refrigeration units and chillers, extraction and ventilation, air conditioning units, ice machines, and all other commercial kitchen equipment.
- How do you quote for an extraction service?
In order to quote for a full service and clean to an extraction system an initial site survey will be required. This is because each system is bespoke to your kitchen and therefore the engineer needs to assess the size, position and scale of the system. He also needs to establish what access/ hatches are available for the cleaning.
Once the initial survey is complete a full quotation will then be provided for the service/ clean.
- How often do I need a service / clean my extraction?
We would recommend this is done every 6 months to keep the system working as it should and to make sure there are no faults. However in cases of extreme heavy use and if you notice a large build-up of grease quickly then every three months may be required for a clean.
- Can I pay by credit card?
Yes, you can. We accept all major UK debit and credit cards.
