It goes without saying that good daily cleaning of your commercial kitchen is essential, but kitchen staff aren’t trained in deep cleaning and won’t have the experience to properly deep clean heavy equipment. That’s why commercial cooker hood cleaning is essential. Here are five reasons why it’s a good idea.
Increases overall hygiene
Professional deep cleaning is a great way to improve the overall hygiene in your kitchen. The additional time and care taken ensures areas are fully clear of dirt and debris that may have been missed on a regular clean.
Using non-caustic chemicals, a kitchen deep clean should clean and degrease every inch of your kitchen, including:
canopy and grease filters
kitchen extract ductwork
all equipment, such as ovens, fryers, microwaves and counters
food preparation surfaces, sinks and dishwashers
refrigeration units and freezers
Reduces foodborne illnesses
An outbreak of food poisoning can cause irreparable damage to a company’s reputation. In some cases, you may face legal costs or compensation. By making sure your commercial kitchen is regularly deep cleaned, you’re reducing the risk of foodborne illnesses such as Salmonella, E. coli and Norovirus.
Maintains health & safety regulations
As a commercial kitchen, there is strict legislation in place to ensure necessary hygiene standards are met. Local authorities, the food standards agency, trading standards and environmental health officers have a responsibility to ensure that operating kitchens comply with food safety guidelines. If your kitchen isn’t kept clean, you could face fines and the threat of closure until the kitchen is safe.
