Now more than ever, it is important that customers have confidence in a business’s commitment to health and safety. For the restaurant industry, this means ensuring that guests feel you are doing everything possible to maintain a clean and sanitary environment. To achieve this level of consumer confidence, your restaurant needs to go beyond the routine cleaning done by staff. Current and future customers will be expecting a level of cleanliness that can only come from consistently adding “deep clean” into your cleaning schedule.

Deep Cleaning the Restaurant

Restaurants typically make general cleaning duties a part of front of house side work. Tasks such as wiping off tables, sweeping or mopping floors, and maintaining bathroom cleanliness fall under this category.

  • Reduction of existing bacteria through the use of a sanitizing product.

Deep Clean – Front of House

A deep cleaning of the front of the restaurant requires a thorough cleaning of all surface areas before using a disinfectant and sanitizer. This includes:

  • Booths, chairs and chair legs, bar, tabletops, and legs

Deep Clean – Back of House

Deep cleaning the kitchen area of a restaurant is an arduous task. It requires the thorough cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing of all surface areas, such as:

  • Cutting boards, tabletops, steam tables, sinks, faucets
  • Grills, stoves, cook tops, fryers, ovens
  • Soda guns, coffee machines, meat, and cheese slicers
  • Walk-in refrigerators, reach-in coolers, freezers
  • Walls and ceilings
  • Floors and floor mats

Grease build-up in kitchen areas is not only a sanitary concern, but it can also become a fire hazard. Foot traffic from the kitchen through the front of the restaurant can result in grease lanes on floors in high traffic areas. This can result in a safety issue for employees and guests.

As part of the deep kitchen cleaning, it is important to clean grease build-up from walls, hoods, and ceiling areas. Grease traps and floor drains should also be cleaned and flushed.

To do a thorough and effective deep clean of your restaurant, you will need the proper tools and the best products available. By hiring a professional to do the work, you can be confident that you have done all you can to maintain a clean and safe environment for your customers and staff.
