Back of House:

Back of house cleaning is critical to help prevent cross contamination! Here are some helpful tips to keep your customers’ kitchens safe and healthy:

  • Pay special attention to areas where grease can build-up, including ovens and range-hoods. Choose a cleaner that is formulated to tackle these soils.
  • Clean and sanitize cutlery thoroughly to prevent the spread of bacteria.
  • Use colour-coded cleaning cloths for different surfaces to prevent the risk of cross contamination.
  • Consider using a multi-purpose cleaner to tackle countertops to minimize the number of products used by staff.
  • Floors can spread bacteria too! Ensure floors are cleaned regularly to keep them looking their best.

Front of House and Bathrooms:

  • Disinfect high-touch areas like sinks, toilets and tables regularly. Always use disinfectants as directed.
  • Ensure bathrooms are serviced regularly to ensure product levels are optimal.
