Using a cleaning checklist for your commercial kitchen keeps your facility in top shape and helps employees follow a consistent cleaning schedule. Without this, important tasks are easily missed, which could cost you when your business is visited by a local health inspector.
We’ve put together a comprehensive checklist below, but staff should take care of routine tasks throughout the day, including: wiping down prep areas between tasks; always wiping down the grill between cooking different types of meats; switching cutting boards in between tasks; changing sanitizing water and rags frequently; and emptying trash bins when they’re full.
Here are some other restaurant kitchen cleaning tasks to add to your daily, weekly, and monthly checklists.
Also consider hiring a professional commercial kitchen cleaning company that uses state-of-the-art cleaning and disinfecting equipment and environmentally-friendly techniques, to help create a cleaner and safer kitchen and work environment. Additionally, the cleaning company should practice hygienic cleaning by using a combination of techniques and tools to remove soils and germs, such as color-coded microfiber cloths for surface cleaning, which are 99 percent more effective than traditional cloth at capturing and removing soil and germs.
Maintaining a clean and healthy facility – starting at the back-of-the-house – will keep your employees safe and your customers coming back.
