Keeping a restaurant clean and sanitised is crucial, especially in these times. Now more than ever, reducing the spread of germs, viruses, and bacteria is paramount to maintaining a healthy and safe dining area for customers and clean and sanitised areas for food preparation and storage.
Keeping any foodservice business clean and properly sanitised is a big job and a big responsibility. While you can use staff to clean your restaurant or pub, there are many benefits to using a professional service for commercial kitchen deep cleaning. But whether you use a professional or staff to clean your dining establishment, cleaning must be done correctly to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, colds, flu, and other diseases. Here are some important tips for creating a safer restaurant.
Regular Professional Deep Cleaning
Regular deep cleaning not only lowers the risk of spreading infectious diseases to guests and staff, but it also keeps your restaurant looking and smelling clean and fresh. A clean and fresh smelling restaurant is inviting to guests, gives them an excellent first impression, and reassures them that they are dining in a safe environment. Using a commercial deep cleaning company is an excellent way to ensure the kitchen, bathrooms, and dining areas are properly cleaned and sanitised.
Proper Dish and Cutlery Sanitation
Proper washing and sanitising of all cookware, dishes, and eating utensils is vital to maintaining a safe and healthy restaurant and reducing the spread of COCID-19 and other viruses and bacteria. Make sure dish machines are clean and working correctly, and large pots and pans are properly washed and sanitised in sinks if they don't fit in the dish machine.
Use a Checklist for Staff and Cleaning Companies
All staff and cleaning company employees must wear gloves when performing cleaning duties, and all workers should change gloves regularly and after each task is completed. It also helps if you used a checklist to make sure cleaning is done correctly and regularly. If you're using a professional cleaning company, detail what needs to be cleaned and inspect each area to ensure the work is up to standard. Professional deep cleaning should include floors and carpet cleaning and sanitising to decrease the spread of COVID-19 and other bacteria and viruses that can be spread through footwear.
Kitchen extractors represent a considerable fire hazard risk in commercial kitchens and should be professionally cleaned and maintained to keep your restaurant safe. Have a professional evaluate and determines how often you should have your extractors cleaned.
