It’s the job that generally gets swept under the carpet, or rather the fryer, range, combi oven, and just about every other available piece of equipment in the kitchen. In fact, it’s the job most of us love to hate – cleaning. But love it or hate it you need to do it, and do it properly. Aside from keeping your kitchen hygienic, it demonstrates good practice, due diligence and a sense of pride in your workplace.
Most caterers make every effort to keep their kitchens as clean as possible but the fact remains that there are some jobs that just cannot be done in-house, and that’s where the services of a professional deep cleaning company come in. A proper deep clean includes disconnecting all kitchen appliances from their services, disassembling them where appropriate and then cleaning all relevant components with specialist chemicals designed specifically for the job. Whilst the equipment is removed, all exposed floor and wall areas should also be cleaned.
When done properly using specialist cleaning materials and carried out by suitably trained operatives, a deep clean will not only keep your kitchen clean but also extend the life of your equipment, thereby protecting your capital expenditure budget.
Buy It! has teamed up with Bright Hygiene, which has an independently measured 98% customer satisfaction rating, to offer readers the chance to win a kitchen deep clean up to the value of £1,000.
