Commercial kitchens and the cooking equipments in them are faster to gather dirt and grease because they are more frequently and heavily used than domestic kitchens. Moreover, not cleaning the kitchen equipments in a commercial kitchen from time to time could negatively impact their lifespan and overall performance. There are companies that do commercial kitchen cleaning services. But if you think that you can’t afford commercial kitchen cleaning services, you can do it on your own.
Commercial kitchen cleaning services involve multiple steps. They include dismantling the kitchen appliances, isolating the electrical equipments, dipping the kitchen equipments in de-greasing solution, cleaning the equipments, cleaning inside area of the kitchen, sanitizing the cooking area and reordering everything.
In order to clean each kitchen appliance thoroughly, you need to dismantle them. After dismantling the components of all your kitchen equipments, immerse them in a diptank. You can prepare a makeshift diptank instantly. Get a large container and fill it with slightly warm de-greasing solution. Your diptank is ready. Components of kitchen equipments such as grease filters, oven trays, grill trays, fan units, fryer pans, range rings and range tops need to be immersed in the diptank and left there for a recommended period of time. Make sure that you refer the user manual of each appliance to learn the recommended timeframe of immersion of each component.
Isolate the electrical equipments
Before you start cleaning the inside area of your kitchen, make sure that you isolate all electrical equipments inside the kitchen. This is to avoid incidents of short-circuit and electric shock because the inside areas of your kitchen are exposed to water during the time of cleaning.
Cleaning the appliances and their components
Once you have kept the soiled components of your kitchen appliances in the diptank over a recommended period of time, clean them thoroughly. Use recommended cleaning materials such as de-greasing solution, scrubber or the likes.
Cleaning the kitchen
Make sure that you shift all items in the kitchen temporarily to the nearest room or outside while cleaning the kitchen. The cooking areas in the kitchen should be sanitised. It is better to use wet vacuum equipment and a steam cleaner to clean the floors thoroughly.
Once you have cleaned the cooking area, kitchen floor, kitchen appliances, the components, and the kitchen exhaust system, you can start reordering the kitchen. If you hire a company to do your commercial kitchen cleaning services, make sure that you inspect everything thoroughly at the end of the cleaning to make sure that your requirements have been met properly.
