Deep kitchen cleaning involves cleaning of all areas of a commercial kitchen, including the ceiling, floors, equipment, preparation tables and walls. The specific focus of this type of kitchen cleaning is to reach out to areas that are out of reach during regular maintenance drills. Dirt and grease accumulate in areas around the refrigerators and under the cooking ranges. The deep cleaning procedure starts with the high level walls and ceiling, but all the difficult to reach areas are reached gradually.
A comprehensive commercial exhaust cleaning company which follows the specifications of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) can be entrusted to complete this task. The deep cleaning of these kitchens involves a detailed approach. All the equipment in the kitchen is stripped down, including grills and fryers. The next step is cleaning them to bare metal. When the floor is cleaned, all the equipment is replaced to the original position.
The kitchen deep cleaning process
Kitchen deep cleaning services involve standard techniques for cleaning the exhaust system. This involves cleaning of the exhaust hood, horizontal or vertical ductwork and exhaust fans. This type of cleaning is compliant with fire code requirements and guarantees protection from the threat of exhaust system fires. Before the cleaning of the exhaust system, all kitchen sections are draped with new plastic. After this, a plastic funnel is placed below the hood in order to drain away the dirt, grease and other kind of unwanted particle accumulation.
In the comprehensive method mentioned above, the grease buildup in the system is prevented from going to the kitchen drains. In a detailed cleaning process, a combination of scrubbing, chemical degreasing and power washing is used to get rid of the grease and accumulated dirt. After the cleaning is complete, your exhaust hood is polished and filters are reinstalled. The last step in the detailed cleaning process is the removal of plastic draping, followed then by the wiping and mopping of kitchen floors.
Deep cleaning is important for kitchen hygiene
Maintaining kitchen hygiene is important not only from the point of view of your employees’ health, but also for preventing fires. Moreover, your kitchen needs to be compliant with the health and safety standards set by various regulatory agencies, such as the NFPA. You do not want to receive a notice from a regulatory body, do you? Moreover, failing to maintain hygiene invites pests.
Only deep cleaning of the kitchen can limit the risks associated with a lack of hygiene to a minimum. Even in the most regularly maintained kitchens, areas such as under the oven and behind fridges can get ignored. That is why most commercial kitchen owners are required by law to subject commercial kitchens to deep cleaning.
