Whether they are located in a restaurant or an office building, commercial kitchens and canteen areas are guaranteed to get very dirty due to the nature of the work that happens in them. You may be thinking that the staff will clean up all the spills and stains, but think again. Here are some reasons why hiring a team of commercial kitchen cleaners is a must.
The only way to really ensure that food preparation areas are 100% hygienic is to bring in professional contract cleaners at least once every six months to give them a thorough deep cleaning. This will see built-up grime and grease removed from hard to reach places like canopy filters, ductwork, fans and lights, which the kitchen staff won’t even think of.
There are official Food Hygiene standards that any commercial kitchen or canteen is obligated to meet. You may think that these kinds of regulations only apply to restaurants or takeaways, but they are applicable to any area where food is prepared. Not bringing in specialist cleaners a couple of times a year could lead to your kitchen – or entire business – being shut down.
Should a member of the public contract a virus like Norovirus, Salmonella or E. coli after eating food prepared in an unclean kitchen or canteen, you could face expensive legal action, as well as very real damage to the reputation of your company. Getting these areas deep cleaned regularly by people who know what they are doing will save you a lot of time, money and worry.
The items used in a commercial kitchen, such as combi ovens and dishwashers, are not cheap and you want them to last as long as possible. While these will be given a basic wiping down at the end of each workday, accumulated dirt and grease can still cause them to break down sooner or later. If you bring in a cleaning service, they will deep clean areas like the oven drip trays. That will get rid of grease and oil that can lead to fires and irreparable damage to the equipment.
