How to Clean an Industrial Kitchen Floor More Efficiently

Cleaning a commercial kitchen usually occurs at the end of an event or the end of the night when staff members’ energy levels and motivation are at their lowest. The floor is one area of your kitchen that should never, ever come into contact with any food or food handling equipment but unclean floors can be home to an untold numbers of germs. What then happens is when items are dropped on the floor these germs are released into the air as small droplets and infect the food which has been prepared.

So, here are a few tips to maximise efficiency when it comes to the arduous but so-very-important job of cleaning an industrial kitchen floor.

  1. Firstly make sure that all the drains in the kitchen are completely unobstructed to allow for maximum water flow. This will make the whole cleaning process more efficient and much easier. Try this drain cleaner.
  2. Be sure to clean all kitchen floors before you get to any food-handling and processing equipment. This will ensure that debris from the floor is kept well away from equipment that has been cleaned.
  3. Change all mops and buckets daily. These can collect germs and bacteria so quickly and it is vital they are either thoroughly cleaned or changed daily to prevent them having the opposite effect of cleaning and disinfecting.
  4. Use a squeegee to help you guide moisture into drains so that the floors are drained of moisture and dry quicker. (Can we link to something Admiral do here?)
  5. On heavy grease areas it is vital you use a proper cleaner. A deep clean with a cleaner will emulsify the layer of grease, stripping it off the tile. This product by Admiral is great for getting through grease it’s also bactericidal, effective against food poisoning bacteria and MRSA.
