Kitchen Deep Cleaning is one of the simplest ways to create a clean, safe kitchen environment, and to meet your legal obligations towards your customers and staff. As well as dealing with invisible hygiene problems, regular Deep Kitchen Cleaning helps to create a positive atmosphere amongst kitchen staff and lets them know that you expect high standards. But what does Deep Kitchen Clean actually involve? How often does it need to happen? And is one-off Kitchen Deep Cleaning enough?
What is Kitchen Deep Cleaning?
The best way to explain Kitchen Deep Cleaning is to consider the difference between Deep Kitchen Cleaning and everyday cleaning.
Day to day, you or your kitchen staff keep on top of the cleaning. But what about all of the areas that remain out of sight? This includes:
- Underneath and behind cookers and fridges
- Around the feet of prep surfaces
- Seals of fridges
- High shelves
- Between walls and prep surfaces
- Between units and equipment
- Inaccessible parts of ranges, grills, fryers and other equipment.
All this means that, even if you have the best cleaning regime possible, there will still be some part of your kitchen and equipment which simply don’t get cleaned. And yet the build up of dirt and grease in these inaccessible areas can still pose a significant health risk. Only Kitchen Deep Cleaning can deal effectively with this type of problem.
Quite apart from the regulatory requirements, it is every catering outlet’s worst nightmare to have customers fall ill or to acquire a reputation for bad hygiene. However, regular Kitchen Deep Cleaning minimises this risk, protecting your customer’s health and avoiding damage to your business’s reputation.
Deep Kitchen Cleaning and everyday cleaning should complement each other. It is far easier and quicker for your staff to maintain a clean kitchen if they are starting from a very clean baseline. And kitchen employees who start out with a thoroughly clean kitchen will feel far more motivated to keep it clean. In addition, seeing Kitchen Deep Cleaning taking place sends a powerful message to all your staff that you take hygiene seriously and expect them to do the same.
Deep Kitchen Cleaning – What’s Included?
Deep Kitchen Cleaning begins with the ceiling and high level walls to the point at which it meets the work surfaces. We then clean all of the preparation tables, removing them where needed in order to clean surfaces which normally can’t be accessed. Finally we go to work on the equipment: the ovens, the fryers, the grills. This just leaves the floor which we clean and wet vac working towards the door – and that’s it – job done.
