What is the purpose of a Maxima cleaning trolley?
Trolleys have an important purpose in the catering industry as they are used to transport and serve meals during breakfast, lunch and dinner. They are also used outside of these times for a variety of purposes. Whenever meals are served, there are bound to be dirty dishes that will require the collection and the use of a trolley. Although a serving trolley can also be used for this purpose, it is best to use a cleaning trolley since they have been developed especially for the task. Cleaning trolleys are capable of collecting large amounts of crockery, glassware and cutlery in stacks or piles, whilst serving trolleys are equipped with flat trays which are not ideally suited to this purpose.
Which hotel and catering companies make use of Maxima cleaning trolleys?
There are all kinds of catering establishments that rely on cleaning trolleys. Larger establishments often make use of these trolleys since smaller restaurants are often able to operate without the need for cleaning trolleys. Cleaning trolleys are also not in great demand in fast-food restaurants that use disposable cutlery and serving containers, but the owner is ultimately the one who will have to decide if a cleaning trolley is worth investing in or not. Nevertheless, cleaning trolleys can traditionally be found in establishments like:
- Conference rooms
- Events venues

How do you maintain a Maxima cleaning trolley?
Cleaning away crockery and transporting items is often done in the presence of guests, and employees must then transport the fully-loaded trolley to the kitchen or dishwashing area. Because of this, it is important that a trolley is always kept looking at its best. The included plastic bins can be washed in the dishwasher and the stainless steel parts are easy to clean by hand with a mild detergent, lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Abrasive sponges and brushes should be avoided at all times. In this way, you can keep your cleaning trolley looking like new for a long time.
