3 Tips for Cleaning Your Commercial Kitchen , Ozark, Alabama

With multiple work stations and a lot of food to prepare each day, a commercial kitchen isn’t easy to keep clean. You need to manage a variety of regular cleaning tasks, including sweeping, mopping, and waste disposal. If you’re struggling to make your kitchen sparkle, practice the following tips.

How to Clean Your Commercial Kitchen

1. Clean Countertops Multiple Times a Day

Since they’re exposed to large amounts of food every day, your kitchen countertops attract bacteria. Clean them with a soft cloth and disinfectant spray (or warm, soapy water for hard-to-remove spills and stains) a couple of times each day. Remove any objects from the countertops before you start cleaning them, and don’t put the items back until the countertops have dried. 

2. Wash the Exhaust Hoods

About every three months, wash the hoods and their filters according to your system’s instruction manual. In most cases, you’ll need to use a mixture of warm water and liquid degreaser. 

3. Manage Waste Disposal Areas

Your trash cans are ideal locations for bacteria and pose a serious threat to your kitchen’s cleanliness. At the end of each day, take out the trash and disinfect all cans and other waste disposal areas. Ensure the garbage gets collected regularly, as overflowing dumpsters will attract insects that could make their way into your kitchen.
