With the summer months fast approaching, a leading Knowsley-based cleaning company is encouraging hospitality businesses to undergo a commercial spring clean.
Director of KitchCleanse, Mike Brougham, believes that now is the ideal time for restaurants, bars and hotels to certify their hygiene standards, in preparation for the busy season ahead.
To ensure that hospitality businesses are meeting and excelling lawful hygiene regulations, Mike and his specialist team are offering their exert tips and advice during the popular ‘big spring clean-up’.
He said: “Spring is the perfect time of year for businesses in the hospitality and F&B trade to make a fresh start on their cleaning regime. In order to be fully prepared before the summer months, it is highly advisable that companies dealing with food preparation to maintain a solid cleanliness routine before custom starts to liven up dramatically.
“With that in mind, my first piece of advice is to organise a cleaning rota for kitchen staff. By displaying the rota clearly, team members will be given a constant reminder of the constructive set routine, which will illustrate what needs to be maintained and endure regular cleaning.
“In addition to the staff being fully clued on the hygiene up-keep, it is vital that they understand what chemicals are used for each specific maintenance job. Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulation training, posters, and labelling will help to ensure that staff members are using chemicals correctly, otherwise the use of incorrect chemicals can not only damage equipment and furniture, but can also be harmful to staff and customers.
“My final piece of advice is to confirm that all cleaning activity is meeting the current legal requirements. If you are unsure about this, seek advice from professional bodies, as they will be more than happy to help.”
To ensure that all lawful hygiene guidelines are being continuously enforced by clients – KitchCleanse offers a range of services across the UK including full kitchen extraction and duct work along with oven and hob deep cleaning.
Mike added: “Kitchen cleaning and hygiene maintenance may seem like daunting and time consuming processes to some, however when effective cleaning strategies are put into place this can be done at ease.
“By safeguarding the cleanliness of your business, it also helps to protect your reputation in the hopes of boosting both prominence and custom.”
