You always keep up with the cleanliness of your kitchen, but when was the last time you have done a deep cleaning? We have put together a short list of tips for restaurant owners who want to get a little deeper on their next clean:
- Exhaust Hoods – While doing a deep clean, you should take a look at your exhaust hoods. Most chefs are using the kitchen all day long, so these hoods can get dirty. You should remove the filters, scrub down the hoods, and spray everything down. If your hood is too dirty, you may need to hire a professional to help clean it properly.
- Refrigerator Shelving – It is important to clean your refrigerator shelving regularly. Whether you have a large refrigerator or a walk-in, you should take the time to pull every shelf off the wall, wipe it down, soak it, and dry it before putting the shelf back in. This process will also encourage you to empty out the refrigerator and throw away old items.
- Pilot Lights – Pilot lights can get stopped up and food may drip on them, so you should take the time to clean them anytime you are doing a deep cleaning.
