Food safety and the general safety of your staff and diners are the most important parts of running an establishment, and the hospitality business at large. And it all starts with an amazing cleaning routine.
Every establishment has a cleaning schedule but now commercial kitchens and establishments must go above and beyond their daily cleaning schedules.
It’s important to have not only a regular cleaning regime but implement a deep cleaning schedule as well – to ensure that even hidden corners are kept hygienic and disinfected.
Regular cleaning is what your staff are doing daily, before, during and after each service or whenever is required. Examples of regular cleaning include disinfecting tables, countertops, and washing of cooking pans and pots as well as diners’ dishes and utensils.
What makes deep cleaning different is it requires more effort and attention from your cleaning staff. Deep cleaning should be done on a weekly basis to ensure food safety and remove any potential cross contamination.
- Grease traps.
- Kitchen hoods and exhaust fans.
- Kitchen walls, ceilings and floor.
- Kitchen appliances and equipment (including surfaces behind and underneath them).
- Sinks, countertops and other work surfaces.
- Refrigerators and other storage areas (internal and external surfaces).
Once a week. This keeps your establishment and kitchen environment clean but more importantly your staff and diners safe.
Like any other cleaning routines, deep cleaning can be done quickly, efficiently and safely. It is important to make sure that in spaces where food is prepped, cooked or stored, you and your team know what cleaning products and their ingredients are being used.
