Restaurant Spring Cleaning
Out with the old, in with the new! A great fresh start to any commercial establishment is an annual deep clean of your establishment; it’s like a breath of fresh air! While cleaning may make your staff roll their eyes, it’s important to keep your business in tip top shape. But this deep clean is going to take a lot more than just some sanitizer and a mop. Grab your heavy duty cleaning supplies and let’s dive in!
The area where the magic happens! To ensure that your staff is adhering to health guidelines, make sure you go through your kitchen and degrease the fryers and grills, clean out the fridges and freezers for spills and stains, clean the cooker hood and so on. You should also make sure that your equipment is working the way it should.
A mop and sanitizer bucket can do great things for your floor but during spring cleaning, it’s best to get it professionally steamed or vacuumed with a professional carpet cleaner. A high pressure steamer will eliminate any dirt or bacteria and make your floors sparkle.
This is another area of your establishment that should be kept disinfected at all times. But during your cleaning, check to see if the sinks, soap dispensers, mirrors and tiles need to be fixed or replaced. Look out for leaking toilet and sink pipes too!
Are the chairs and tables in your dining area wobbling? Do the fabrics have stains? Are there tears in the booth seats? Part of giving your customers a great dining experience is providing comfort. Replace or fix any damaged furniture so that your restaurant stays pristine and safe.
It’s likely that the outside of your establishment has some mud, dirt, grime and/or salt build up. This calls for a heavy-duty power wash! If you have an outdoor dining area, be sure to check if the furniture and any equipment are in good condition.
While you and your staff are keeping the premises clean, there’s always a way to make your spaces more clean. Sanitizing the floors, countertops, sinks and cabinets will eliminate any germs that may have come in contact in your office and/or breakroom. If you have carpets, get a heavy-duty vacuum to get rid of any dirt and impurities. Furniture like tables and chairs should also be cleaned.
Your staff does a good job at keeping their uniforms clean. However, if they’re coming across rips, tears or any damages, it can look unprofessional. It’s important to have spare uniform pieces on hand, whether that is shirts, aprons or any other apparel.
While we hope to never have an emergency situation, it’s a possibility that it could happen. Making sure emergency items like a fire extinguisher is up to date is beneficial for your safety, as well as your staff and customer’s safety.
Consider the Following
Changing Up Your Look
This is an optional step, seeing as your establishment may not be in need of a makeover. However, if your decor and atmosphere is a little lacklustre, it may be time to look at a new theme! A new menu is also a nice way to change things up.
Your restaurant needs space for the essentials. Getting rid of any unused products will be a real space saver, from filing papers to reorganizing your pantry.
It’s important for you and your staff to adhere to regular cleaning and maintenance checks; not just for spring cleaning, but all year round!
