Proper care & maintenance for restaurant sinks and faucets
Stainless Steel is the material that is used for manufacturing sinks and faucets. The only reason for using stainless steel is that it rust free and corrosion free and it is extremely durable in nature. It requires very less of maintenance and if proper care is taken, it lasts for a lifetime.
It is always advised not to use scrub pads or steel mesh for cleaning these stainless steel kitchen items. It would result in minute scratches being formed on the surface. Even the use of hard detergents should be avoided as it eats up the thin coating of nickel or chromium which is used to polish the outer surface to give its shine and anti corrosive nature. Once you extensively use scrub pads or detergents the thin coating gets worn out and leads to the formation of holes which develops into rust and thus water seepage starts. So always clean it with a thin muslin cloth with very mild liquid soap so as to retain its shine and polish.
It is recommended to wipe sinks and faucets on a daily basis. To avoid moisture settling down, your kitchen should be always kept dry to the maximum as a wet environment invites rust. So everyday you should go for cleaning your kitchen equipment with a soft cloth, usually in cotton to prevent water sticking onto it. This helps to prevent the so called ‘marriage’ of moisture and rust and increases the life of your restaurant kitchen sink.
