Running a restaurant is no piece of cake. There are multiple jobs that you have to juggle at any given time from planning a menu to managing a staff to cultivating a loyal fan base. Of course, one of the most essential things to maintain in a restaurant is high standards of cleanliness and hygiene. Nothing will sink a restaurant faster than an untidy front of the house or a dirty kitchen.
Our professionals at Service Master Elite Cleaning Service have quite a bit of experience in cleaning restaurants and these 3 tips will help you maintain cleanliness.
Clean throughout the day
Don’t designate only a specific time of day to clean your restaurant and kitchen. Restaurants can be a high traffic place and there’s so much that can get dirty fast, like the front of the house, the restrooms, the kitchen. A clear cleaning schedule is a great resource to ensure that different areas are being cleaned and tended to all throughout the day. This will also help make sure that no area of the restaurant goes ignored.
We can’t stress how important it is to have designated towels for cleaning different areas of the restaurant. This is especially important to avoid any cross-contamination. It is important to separate your cleaning products and equipment. Don’t use the same towels to clean the front of the house and the restrooms. It would not be a good idea to use the same towels to disinfect your kitchen counters and wipe the tables that your patrons are going to be using.
Disinfect your condiments
One of the most neglected things in a restaurant when it comes to cleaning has to be the condiments. Which is surprising, since so many people use their hands to touch the salt or pepper shaker or the ketchup bottles. Just like your cutlery is cleaned and washed after every patron uses it, your condiments should also be regularly disinfected to ensure the health and wellbeing of your employees and patrons.
As we’ve said before running a restaurant is a lot of work and you don’t need to be doing it all. Contact Service Master Elite Cleaning Service and let us help you maintain a clean and hygienic business so that you can focus on other aspects of your restaurant.
