Cleaning of Industrial Kitchens. The kitchen is one of the important rooms, not only at home but also in industrial and office areas.
It’s not uncommon for people to spill food or whatever they make in the kitchen, so it’s important and necessary to clean the kitchen regularly.
The kitchen can also reflect the character and personality of a company and the people who work in it. So keeping a clean kitchen is a must. There are many steps, tools, and tips to use when it comes to thoroughly cleaning an industrial kitchen. Here are things to pay attention to when cleaning industrial kitchens.
Sponge and Cloth
Sponges are used to wash cutlery such as spoons, forks, plates, glasses, and others. In addition, sponges can also be used to clean various surfaces in industrial kitchens.
Surfaces in the kitchen can also be cleaned using a rag. Stove surfaces or food or drink spills can also be cleaned using a rag. Use 2 types of rags; wet rag and dry rag to clean dirt thoroughly.
If your industrial kitchen uses cleaning fluids that contain harsh chemicals, rubber gloves will protect your hands from any contamination or possible side effects from the cleaning agents used. You can also use rubber gloves when washing tableware or industrial kitchen equipment.
Multipurpose Cleaning Liquid
As the name suggests, multi-purpose cleaning fluids can be used to clean various pieces of furniture in your industrial kitchen. Such as sinks, countertops, kitchen cabinets, stove surfaces, kitchen walls, and so on. For this reason, it would be better if all-purpose cleaning liquid is always available in your industrial kitchen
Sweep or Vacuum Cleaner and Mop
It’s not just industrial kitchen furniture, appliances, and surfaces that need cleaning. But also industrial kitchen floors. A broom or vacuum cleaner must be present in industrial kitchens to be used to clean industrial kitchen floor areas.
This cleaning tool can keep the floor clean from dust and other impurities. After cleaning the floor area with a broom or vacuum cleaner, proceed to mop the floor to make sure the floor is as clean as possible. In addition, mopping the floor can also make the floor area look shiny. Use a non-abrasive floor cleaner so it doesn’t damage the floor.
