Tips and Tricks to Keep your Commercial Kitchen Clean and Safe

Being responsible for keeping your restaurant running smoothly can be a stressful task, but using kitchen cleanliness is of utmost importance.

Challenges in keeping the restaurant clean

Cleaning a restaurant can be stressful and frustrating, especially when it’s a hectic day or part of the day. Tasks such as washing dishes and cleaning the floor require different methods, but both need to be done to keep your business clean. Take the time to properly train employees on what they need to clean, how often, and explain or show them how to do the task. You’ll save yourself frustration and money by preventing mistakes.

Cleaning checklist

Some tasks need to be done daily, others weekly, and a few only once a month.

Daily tasks:

• Clean the cooking space such as the stove, fryer, and griddle.
• Disinfect surfaces, prep areas, sinks, and trash cans
• Wipe down equipment that you regularly use, such as the slicer or toaster
• Sweep and clean the floors
• Wipe down splatters on the wall

Weekly tasks:

• Clean the inside of the oven
• Deep clean cleans and faucets
• Sanitize the walk-in freezer and/or refrigerator
• Fully clean the deep fryer

Monthly tasks

• Clean behind the water lines
• Clean coffee machines with chemicals
• Clean refrigerator coils
• Deep clean the ice machine
• Empty grease traps
• Do a complete wash of the walls, ceilings, and vent hoods

Proper floor cleaning
A traditional broom and mop won’t clean your floors fully due to the grease buildup. You need to use a product designed to dissolve grease and oil. Once it’s had time to sit, loosen residue with a brush. Newer technologies can get rid of the grease-spreading mop and bucket to keep the floor clean and the restaurant safe.
