Spring Cleaning – Why Not?

Seven Tips for a Cleaner Restaurant

Since we have been talking about spring time and the weather changing, we thought this would be the perfect time to mention the dreaded task of “spring cleaning”. Yes, your home probably needs a touch-up, or maybe even your car, but have you thought about your restaurant?

Mary-Claire highlighted seven great tips in her blog on www.kng.com. She points out that for starters, try to get some natural light shining in to your restaurant, so that you can see every little corner. Assess your base boards, and walls. Do they need a good scrubbing, maybe even a coat of paint? Here is a quick list of other areas that you need to focus on as well:

1. Restrooms – It is time for a face-lift. Check every little detail including the grout. Use a pressure washing system to remove any build-up and grime.

2. Carpets – This would be a good time to bring in a company and have them deep-cleaned. The winter and early spring has a lot of rain and snow that has probably been tracked in and smashed into your carpet.

3. Mats – Inspect the mats that you have currently, if they are in good shape,

then maybe just pressure-wash them. Since, spring can still be a rainy time, make sure that you have enough mats at each entryway.

4. Air Conditioning Units – As we are rapidly approaching warm summer months, you will need to turn on your AC. Look them over to make sure they are in good condition, or have them professionally cleaned so that they don’t blow dust and dirt around your freshly cleaned restaurant.

5. Hoods – You should already be cleaning your hood vents on a regular basis, but you should also have them professionally deep cleaned once a year.

6. Ice Machines – Ice machines are a huge source of food-borne illness, so you should be cleaning them out on a regular basis. Empty, defrost and sanitize your ice machine.

7. Walls and Ceilings – These areas tend to get ignored. You would be surprised by how much dust and grime can build up over time. Take a sponge and some soapy water to your walls and ceilings for a fresh look and feel.

This list might seem like one big daunting task, but break it down into smaller manageable parts. Try to schedule one or two areas to clean a day, and then in one week’s time, you will have a spick-and-span restaurant.
