Drainage should be one of the top items on the list when designing commercial kitchens. Drains need to be installed in the correct location and fit the intended purpose at the beginning of the project. Effective drainage is critical to deter bacteria growth from pooling liquids and other food debris. Environmental health officers are quick to shut down restaurants with poor hygiene standards. Proper maintenance must also be considered in order to ensure that drains do not foster a habitat for rodents and other pests.
In existing structures, renovating the drainage system can become a complicated situation. Digging up floors and drilling through walls may be required not to mention special permits for specific circumstances. Many find it easier to design the kitchen around the drainage that’s already there.
