Let’s face it – a restaurant is going to get dirty and it’s going to get dirty on a daily basis. With lots of food being cooked, eaten, and carried around, plus a lot of foot traffic coming and going, the restaurant is going to need a good daily cleaning. From the restrooms to the kitchen to the dining room, we are going to review some of the specific areas you will want to focus on daily to keep your restaurant looking its best and smelling fresh. Here are our recommendations for daily restaurant cleaning tasks.
Daily Restaurant Kitchen Cleaning Tasks
The kitchen will see a lot of spilled food, soiled floors, and food debris strewn about. Wiping counters is often at the top of the daily kitchen cleaning list. But also consider wiping down walls, legs of wash areas, and under and behind flat surfaces. Refrigerators, cooktops, microwaves, and warming drawers should see daily cleaning as well. It’s important to use hot water and soap, bleach, or a disinfecting spray to maintain a sanitary environment in your restaurant kitchen and prevent food-borne illness.
Daily Restaurant Restroom Cleaning Tasks
Cleaning restrooms in your restaurant every day is especially important. Your restaurant restrooms should be checked on throughout the day as well, to ensure a consistently-clean and orderly space. Continue to use your bleach and disinfecting spray to provide the most hygienic environment possible in your restaurant restrooms. Daily cleaning of toilets, sinks, countertops, mirrors, and door handles are essential to your restroom cleaning routine.
Daily Restaurant Window and Glass Door Cleaning Tasks
Continual traffic, fingerprints, and the weather outside are going to make glass windows and door areas smudged and dirty. Touching up these areas regularly is going to go a long way to make your restaurant shine! It’s small details like cleaning and shining the areas around your glass doors where people push or grab the door handle, that call out to your customers that you are a fine establishment that cares about their appearance and looks great!
Restaurant Tile Floors and Carpet Cleaning
Finally, make sure to vacuum or sweep your floor surfaces, and mop them with bleach or a sanitizing solution. People will be walking in these areas tracking food, dirt, and moisture around your business. It’s crucial to keep your restaurant floors picked up and to clean them on a daily basis. You will also want to review the floors of the restaurant throughout the day to address any drink or food spills that might pose a slipping concern. Keeping a cleaning station set up with sanitizing solutions, paper towels, and a mop can encourage staff to help keep your floors looking great throughout the day as well.
At the end of the day, make sure the carpets get a thorough vacuuming everywhere including under tables and chairs, and that the hard floor surfaces are mopped throughout the entire restaurant including the eating areas, restrooms, front entryways, and kitchens.
A clean restaurant will continue to keep your customers happy and returning to your food establishment again and again.
