CLEANING THE OFFICE KITCHEN

CLEANING THE OFFICE KITCHEN

The office kitchen often goes overlooked when it comes to cleaning and general hygiene. The commonly accepted practice in office kitchens is, ‘If you used it then you wash it’. Keeping the kitchen at your workplace clean goes far beyond coffee cups and used cutlery though. Take a moment and think about the sheer volume of people who use the office kitchen in comparison to your kitchen at home. It should be no surprise that the kitchen at work gets dirtier faster and needs more attention. The best way to deal with this problem is to hire a professional cleaning service to ensure your workplace is always hygienic and up to standard.

  • Floors

Depending on whether you work in an office or the hospitality industry, the floors of the communal kitchen in your workplace will vary in cleanliness. Regardless of where you work though dirt and bacteria will be brought in from the outside on the souls of peoples shoes. This issue will worsen based on how many people work for you and how many people have access to the kitchen. Regardless, the kitchen floors will need attention especially when taking into consideration all the food dropped and drinks spilled. Many of the stains created will not come out with a simple mop and will require pressure washing.

  • The Roof and Walls

The roof and walls are arguably the most overlooked part of any living or working space when it comes to cleaning. Very few businesses or household think to clean the roof and walls. Kitchens tend to attract dust, grease, food particles and oily stains. Over a period of time this will build up and cause an environment that is unhygienic to prepare of consume food in. Additionally, it is always important to clean the roof of your kitchen. You don’t know what kinds of creepy crawlies could have made a home for themselves in the corner of your office kitchen. Inspects and spiders can carry disease and infection and you need to keep on top of this in the work place, especially where food is prepared.

  • Storage Areas and Coolers

Anywhere that food is stored will need to be kept clean and monitored on a regular basis. If food spills or goes off it can lead to someone getting sick, slipping on a spillage or attract disease carrying insects and mice. Additionally, you will need to ensure you are appropriately storing the food so that it retains its nutritional value and is not corrupted or cross contaminated. This is a particular concern for the hospitality industry although all businesses should stay on top of maintaining the storage areas in their office kitchen.
