Commercial gas appliances rely on regular maintenance to ensure they remain efficient and safe. Your equipment is the beating heart of your kitchen and by ensuring your appliances are regularly maintained and serviced you can help to reduce the risk of breakdown. Our engineers are fully qualified and will help to ensure that all your equipment is running exactly as it should.
Gas Maintenance Overview
Gas Appliance Maintenance
Maintaining appliances regularly is vital to keep your commercial kitchen running smoothly. Our engineers also inspect safety devices such as pressure switches, flow and temperature sensors to ensure appliances are running safely and efficiently.
Gas leaks are extremely dangerous. As such, they need to be dealt with quickly by a professional gas engineer. If you smell gas, it’s vital to react quickly. Call us and we’ll get a qualified engineer on-site as soon as possible to resolve any issues.
Making sure new appliances are correctly installed from the outset can help to reduce potential future issues. Our experienced engineers are able to install new equipment to manufacturers specifications to provide you with extra peace of mind.
Our team of qualified engineers pride themselves on providing a friendly and pro-active service. As well as carrying our standard maintenance schedules they will often highlight potential issues that could become a problem in the future.
Is your Gas Safety Certificate (CP42) up to date?
The law requires the employer at any place of work to ensure all gas equipment, pipework and flues under their control are maintained by an Gas Safe Registered engineer. Our gas engineers are certified and accredited to help keep your certification up-to-date.
We can inspect your commercial catering business and help you to achieve the required standards. Our engineers are also able to issue CP42 commercial catering gas safety certificates where appropriate.
Our engineers are fully gas safe registered
At Certa Service, all of our engineers are gas safe registered, qualified and trained to maintain your commercial catering gas equipment. They can ensure that all your equipment fully complies with regulations to keep you and your staff safe.
Our engineers are fully equipped to repair whatever equipment needs fixing and as a business, we hold over 10,000 critical spare parts for most brands of commercial catering equipment. Our engineers have a huge range of experience with kitchen breakdowns and will do what they can to fix the problem quickly so that you can get back to doing what you do best.
Should there be a problem or a leak, we can repair it there and then. We are happy to do this ad-hoc if you are not already a customer. However, we would advise you to book a regular appointment as part of a kitchen maintenance service contract to ensure it is completed, as we realise how easy to forget whilst you are busy with the day-to-day business of running a restaurant or catering business.
Frequently asked questions
If you’re not sure where to start, here are some questions we get asked a lot.
Why is a Gas Test Needed?
A Gas Safety Inspection is needed to ensure that all your appliances are working correctly and to make sure there are no leaks. Leaks will mean harmful gases like carbon monoxide are escaping into your kitchen and can seriously harm your staff. Gas Safe Certificates will also be needed for your records.
Can you arrange a Gas Safe Test and certificate?
Our commercial catering gas engineers are fully certified to carry out testing and are familiar with all issues surrounding commercial kitchen gas safety. They will ensure that all your equipment fully complies to regulations to keep you and your staff safe.
How often is a Gas Safety Test required?
This is required every 12 months. A new certificate will be provided following each test which will be valid for the year.
How long will a Gas Safety Test take?
This depends on the size of your kitchen and how many gas appliances you have, however we would always set aside a couple of hours to make sure the engineer has time to complete all of his checks and write up all paperwork while he is on site. They are best completed in a morning before the equipment is in use.
When will I receive the Gas Safe certificate?
The engineer will leave a copy on site with you as soon as he is finished, this will be a hard copy for your records. A copy of that certification plus a Certa Service Certificate will also be emailed to you following his visit, so you also have it electronically.
