Cleaning up: why now’s the time to buy warewashing and glass washing equipment

At Richard Jay, hygiene standards are central to everything we do. We’re committed to helping our clients meet stringent government hygiene standards – a responsibility that has grown in scope and importance since the onset of COVID-19.

The pandemic saw many cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs close their doors for good, and led remaining businesses to take stock of their hygiene practices and equipment.

Recently we have seen an increase in purchase enquiries from hospitality business owners across the country in preparation for the expected onset of stricter sanitation regulations.

Effective cleaning and sanitation practices are essential to protect you and your customers against the spread of bacteria and other organisms that cause foodborne illness. It also minimises the likelihood of pest infestations, which is of course an essential health and safety consideration for hospitality businesses.

As business owners across the country look to upgrade or replace glass washing and warewashing machines, you can rest assured that the Richard Jay warehouse has stock.

All of the boilers on our machines are set to 90 degrees Celsius, ensuring that every wash is guaranteed to meet the required minimum rinse temperature of 80-85 degrees.
