Running a restaurant is a stressful and unpredictable business that is usually based on the whims of the marketplace and consumer trends. However, there are always two things that a restaurant owner can control: the food coming out of the kitchen and a sanitary environment in which to enjoy it. It’s the nature of the restaurant business to focus more on the former and forget about the latter. However, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist, or a restaurant owner to know that either one can make or break a business. With worries about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading this time of year, you can’t take any risks. Here are some of the essential cleaning supplies and tips that you need to keep your restaurant clean.
Your Top Priority is Cleanliness
The Food Safety Modernization Act is aiming to ensure that the United States food supply is safe by moving the focus from responding to contamination and sickness – to preventing it. This means restaurant owners must be proactive about keeping their businesses clean, and not waiting until the health inspector comes by. Therefore, it’s essential to get into a routine of cleaning every single night before you close. This includes both the kitchen and dining areas. Stock up on the necessary cleaning supplies, like hand sanitizer, bleach, toilet paper, disinfectant spray, and paper towels while you can. These cleaning supplies are available in bulk at H.C. Walterhoefer, so do not hesitate to come in now! Once you have the necessary supplies, you can get to cleaning the right way.
The kitchen is one of most essential spots in the restaurant to keep clean. To properly use your cleaning supplies to tidy it up, employees must sanitize kitchen utensils, equipment, and surfaces that encounter food. Kitchen items like cutting boards, blenders, countertops, and grills must be disinfected. Consider H.C. Walterhoefer’s wide selection of cleaning products and janitorial supplies to clean your kitchen correctly.
Looking after your dining room cleanliness is also necessary for safety reasons. The dining room is where hundreds of your customers will spend their time every day. Clean it properly by thoroughly sanitizing the surface areas that the customers come in contact with. This includes bar tops, tables, chairs, and menus. This should be done with clean towels that haven’t been in contact with other surfaces in the restaurant. Don’t forget to sweep and mop the floor. H.C. Walterhoefer has a surplus of mops and brooms for you.
