Every area in the kitchen needs to be cleaned regularly because they get contaminated very easily and quickly. The space above the burners is one of the most quickly contaminated areas in commercial as well as domestic kitchens. It is through this area that the fumes and air pass outside. Although the ventilation of the fumes and air is supported by extract canopies with oil capturing and grease filtering capabilities, the area can become greasy over time unless it is cleaned regularly. In large commercial kitchens, the area above the burners has fans to quickly remove the contaminated air from the cooking place.
Commercial kitchen cleaning tips
If you are someone in-charge of a commercial kitchen, you may have several questions about the maintenance of your kitchen. Apparently, the first question you may have will be about the frequency to execute the kitchen cleaning. If you are hiring commercial kitchen cleaning services for the job, you wouldn’t want them to show up very often because of the fee they charge you. However, you can’t avoid this for obvious reasons.
The truth is that there is no specific time frame for cleaning the commercial kitchen. Being the facility manager, it is up to you to monitor the kitchen from time to time and decide when to have the cleaning done. A simple advice I have for you is to look at the kitchen surfaces or the various components placed there. Do any of them appear dirty or greasy? Call in reliable commercial kitchen cleaning services immediately. If you are doing the cleaning yourself, make all the necessary arrangements to perform the cleaning. When you do the cleaning, make sure that you cover all areas and kitchen components. A partial cleaning won’t do. If you don’t have the resources to execute the kitchen cleaning all by yourself, consider hiring any of the reputed commercial kitchen cleaning services.
Things to keep in mind while doing the kitchen cleaning yourself
If you have decided not to hire any commercial kitchen cleaning services to clean your kitchen, well, you have made a better choice. However, it is recommended that you undergo some basic training about cleaning. The training will help you be careful while cleaning kitchen components or odour removal systems such as carbon cells, ESP, or UV.
Kitchen cleaning might look like a tedious job. However, it is a necessary job that has to be done on a regular basis. It will not only make the kitchen and the components durable but also ensure the hygiene of the food prepared.
