4 Tips for Keeping Your Restaurant Kitchen Clean

Cleanliness is one of the most important aspects of working at a restaurant. Not only do you have to keep it clean to pass inspection, but keeping your restaurant equipment clean will help extend it's life and help you avoid costly food-service equipment repairs in Missouri. Here are a few tips for keeping your restaurant kitchen clean:

1. Assign Cleaning Tasks to Employees.

Make a list of the cleaning tasks that need to be completed daily, weekly and monthly. Then assign each of those tasks to different employees. Be sure all employees know exactly what is expected of them. Keep a checklist for everyone to follow to make sure each cleaning task has been completed. The quality of your restaurant is dependent on everyone doing their part.

2. Clean Throughout the Day.

Certain cleaning responsibilities should be completed multiple times a day. The grill for example, should be brushed down between orders. Prep areas should be kept tidy and cutting boards should be changed out regularly. Change the sanitizing water and rags, and take out the trash when you have a little down time. Plus, the more you clean throughout the day, the less you have to do at the end of the night before you can go home.  

3. Don't Leave a Dirty Kitchen Overnight.

At the end of the night, it's important to clean all appliances and equipment to extend the life and reduce the need for restaurant equipment repairs in Missouri and Western Illinois. Make sure all surfaces have been thoroughly wiped down and grease traps have been cleaned out. You should never leave a food mess overnight as it becomes harder to clean up after it's set for awhile. When you come into work in the morning, you want your kitchen to be clean and ready for another day of great cooking and food service.

4. Keep Cleaning Consistent.

For those tasks that don't need done everyday, have a set date that the task gets completed. For example, maybe every Wednesday you sanitize the sink and floor drains. Monthly tasks can be completed on the same date each month. The deepest most thorough cleaning will need to be done once a month, and may require extra cleaning. Maybe on the second Monday of every month you could have the staff come in an hour early or stay an hour late to do some major cleaning. Maintaining consistency will help avoid things being missed.

By keeping your entire kitchen including the appliances and equipment clean, you'll reduce the need for costly repairs of restaurant equipment.
