Although most professionally run kitchens will be cleaned down following a service shift, this is not the same as the sort of deep clean you get when professional cleaning contractors are involved. After all, in-house catering staff will usually be tired after the end of a hot, busy shift and be more likely to think about when they can leave rather than whether or not every surface is properly disinfected. That’s not to say that clean downs at the end of shifts are inadequate. They often provide a good level of hygiene and cleanliness. However, it is only when you augment your current cleaning arrangements with a professional cleaning service that you can take your kitchen to the next level.
In many cases, wiping down food preparation areas and other surfaces is enough to keep on top of kitchen grime, microbes and dirt. However, in busy working kitchens there is not always the time and space to clean more thoroughly the harder to reach places, such as the insides of ovens and the storage compartments you may have in your fridges. For this to be conducted properly, you need a professional approach that only an expert service provider like Clean & Tidy can offer.
We have been professionally cleaning restaurants, kitchens in pubs, educational establishments and office canteens for decades. As such, there is little we don’t know about ensuring the hygiene levels of catering firms are maintained at the highest levels possible. What’s more, we also know how to arrange our service provision such that it does not interfere with your usual business hours. We’ll appoint a dedicated account manager to any restaurant or catering business that books us to perform a deep clean in their kitchen and make sure they’re available 24/7. This is because we know that the hospitality industry has special requirements that other sectors simply don’t.
Of course, it is not just about the sort of expanded cleaning schedule you need that goes beyond the daily routine. Although it is important to clean fridges, sinks and ovens on top of your usual surface cleaning and floor washing, there are other aspects of professional kitchens which sometimes get overlooked. Ventilation systems, bins and dishwashers can all suffer from too little attention, something that will no longer be the case when you turn to Clean & Tidy, of course. The sorts of places that tend to get neglected most are, of course, the sort of locations where local authority health inspectors like to look. Maybe your hygiene rating will drop because a high shelf hasn’t been cleaned recently? Alternatively, it could be your freezer seal that causes an issue if fragments of food are found trapped in it?
Whatever it might be, ensuring your customers continue to have confidence in the cleanliness of your kitchens should be paramount. Good reputations are so easily lost, after all. That’s why we’d love to hear from you if you run a professional kitchen. We cater to the needs of one-off food outlets as well as multi-site restaurant chains.
