Restaurant Equipment Cleaning

Every piece of equipment in a restaurant that uses gas, electricity, or water will perform better and safer if regularly cleaned. The thing with many restaurant operators is they don’t put a premium on cleanliness, so long as they can still prepare and serve food to patrons.

But this is a mistake. Cleaning your equipment regularly can help it run more efficiently, reduce the risk of contamination, and save you money in repairs or replacements later on.

Safety guidelines must be followed when cleaning restaurant equipment, and this is the very reason why you’re better off hiring a professional cleaning service. But if you do choose to clean the equipment yourself, make sure that you understand how to do it safely and correctly. Here are some tips for cleaning restaurant equipment:

  • Always unplug electrical equipment before starting the cleaning process.

  • Wear gloves and masks while cleaning, as this will help protect you from bacteria, chemicals, and other airborne particles.

  • Use a mild detergent and warm water to clean the surface of the equipment.

  • Use a brush or steel wool to scrub off any grease and grime.

  • Rinse the equipment thoroughly with hot water after cleaning.

  • Make sure to dry all surfaces completely

Those are just some of the basic tips for cleaning restaurant equipment. But if you want to be relieved of the tasks of cleaning and sanitizing, there’s always the option of working with Windsor Hood Cleaning.

Certain “unwritten” rules ought to be followed when cleaning restaurant equipment. For instance, cleaning ought to be done in a systematic process. This includes cleaning the exteriors, followed by surfaces that come into contact with food, and then appliances and vents.

Another rule is to consistently deep clean and sanitize. We recommend deep cleaning the equipment at least once a month – this is done best with high-powered steam cleaning machines.

Moreover, make sure to use approved detergents and disinfectants when sanitizing. You can’t just use any type of cleaning agent as some might damage surfaces. On the other hand, you can’t also settle for soft detergents meant for household cleaning; they won’t do the job of removing grease.
