Whether you own a restaurant, hotel or factory canteen, a deep cleaning company can help you offer a better service to customers and staff in a huge array of different ways. Take a look at the following article to find out what you should know about deep cleaning services for your commercial kitchen.
Deep clean at least once every twelve months
Hygiene within commercial kitchens is governed by the guidelines of the Food Safety Act. In a busy environment it’s easy for cleaning jobs to get missed and for dirt to build in hard to reach places, but missed dirt and inadequate hygiene practices could violate the food safety act.
It’s essential to hire deep cleaning services for your commercial kitchen at least once a year to ensure food standards are met and that any cleaning jobs that can’t be carried out by regular staff are completed. For example health and safety law does not permit kitchen staff to use certain professional cleaning techniques, for example where the use of dangerous chemicals is involved.
The basics of commercial kitchen deep cleaning
When carrying out a deep clean on your kitchen, a professional company will:
- Visit your site to complete a survey, recommend actions and offer a quote.
- Agree on what cleaning is to be carried out, including any equipment.
On the cleaning day, the company will carry out the following tasks:
- Degrease – manual and chemical cleaning is used to remove grease deposits from surfaces and machinery.
- Decarbonise – cooker surrounds and interiors and heated surfaces are cleaned of burnt debris.
- Sludge Removal – Semi-liquid sediment such as used oil is collected and removed.
- Manual Cleaning – Steam, chemicals and cleaning products are used to remove any remaining dirt or food deposits.
- Cleaning Equipment – all utensils, pots, pans and other cooling equipment are degreased, descaled and decarbonised.
Once the job is complete the team leader will walk the client through what they have done and sign off on the job when the client is satisfied.
Why choose kitchen deep cleaning?
Commercial kitchens are generally busy places and it can be hard to find the time to take stock and keep track of big cleaning jobs. When you hire professional deep cleaners, as well as ensuring that the dirt you can’t see as well as the dirt you can is removed, you can also rest assured that any cleaning will be carried out in accordance with all the relevant Health and Safety, insurance and fire regulations.
Regular deep cleaning will let Environmental Health Officers know that you take your hygiene management provision seriously and is often a good way to tackle an unsatisfactory environmental health report. In addition deep kitchen cleaning will quickly stop the spread of pests or bacteria, play an important role in your hygiene management process and ensure that your staff and customers are working and eating within a healthy environment that adheres to all current food hygiene regulations.
