Because commercial kitchens are in use for long periods of time, it is important to keep everything clean and well-maintained. A lack of proper care and cleaning can quickly shorten many kitchen appliance’s lifespans and effectiveness.
A buildup of oil and grease residue on stove grates can impair the stove’s ability to evenly heat something and can pose a fire hazard. Failing to properly clean a sink can easily result in a buildup of lime and other minerals or even rust in the faucet head.
Neglecting any area of a kitchen when cleaning invites opportunities for cross-contamination, bacteria growth, and fire hazards, and with the busy schedule that most restaurants maintain, minor details can often go unnoticed.
What is vapor steam cleaning?
Vapor steam cleaning is a chemical-free, versatile, and highly effective steam cleaning method used in commercial kitchens. It works by highly pressurizing and heating water and expelling it as a fine vapor, which can easily penetrate porous surfaces to destroy harmful bacteria, mold, and other contaminants.
The high pressure dislodges dirt, while the high temperatures kill bacteria and germs while loosening grease and oil stains. Vapor steam cleaning can be used on a wide variety of surfaces and machines.
Additionally, vapor steam cleaning is a very eco-friendly method as it uses only water and is an ideal green cleaning method for use in commercial kitchens where food is present.
Why should you hire a commercial cleaning service for your business?
Maintaining a clean commercial kitchen is necessary for a variety of reasons, including to keep up to date on health code and food standards and to ensure your customers are getting the best possible dining and food experience.
Kitchen staffs are responsible for daily routine cleaning, including cleaning and disinfecting countertops, prep stations, cooktops, and appliances, as well as sweeping and mopping the floors. We’ve put together a handy checklist for commercial kitchen cleaning to help your staff stay on track.
However, the tougher jobs like cleaning grease traps, fryers, getting built-up grease and gunk off of appliances, and doing deep cleaning and disinfecting behind appliances, in walk-in freezers, and other areas should be performed by a professional commercial cleaning company.
