The Problems With Wood Storage Units Are Many
Wood is not a food business’ friend. Whether it be a grocery store, catering or restaurant, wood is a big a problem for sanitary and hygienic operations. The fact is, wood comes with a lot of chemicals if the surface is prepared or painted. And these veneers or films chip and flake over time, which can get into the food prepared on it. However, this is not the worse issue; old wood tends to be a sponge. It soaks up liquid in cracks, creating wonderful homes for bacteria. And no amount of cleaning or bleach is going to remove every nook and cranny of bacteria once it gets set in the wood. That means the same bacteria can then transfer to food product again and again if it makes contact, which is very easy with hands or kitchen tools placed on the furniture. And the critical result is food contamination which in turn can lead to food poisoning.
Fortunately, much of the above can be entirely avoided. By replacing old wood work tables, cutting boards and shelving with modern kitchen furniture and work surfacing, bacteria doesn’t have a place to hide. Modern materials such as steel, metal, and durable plastics repel bacteria and make it easy to clean.
