Commercial kitchens typically need a little more upkeep than your average residential kitchen. There is a lot more involved in keeping your commercial kitchen properly maintained than simply prepping and cooking — cleaning is a huge component of any successful commercial kitchen. From equipment upkeep to proper cleaning methods, being aware of the to-do’s to keep your commercial kitchen adequately maintained becomes essential. Ultimately, keeping an appropriate checklist for your commercial kitchen maintenance needs can significantly help keep you on track. Here is a helpful guide to make sure you are effectively and efficiently maintaining your commercial kitchen.
The Daily Tasks
It’s important to make sure all the equipment is clean — so it can be used freely. Wiping down and cleaning fryers, griddles, ovens, ranges, and steamers are all key to ensuring your commercial kitchen is as clean as possible. The reality is that beyond cleaning these appliances, there are refrigeration cleaning tasks that will need to be accomplished as well. These include things like removing any debris from the shelves and wiping them down with warm water and detergent. Ultimately, all the equipment in the commercial kitchen — including food prep equipment needs to be cleaned after use daily.
The Weekly Tasks
There is no denying that there are certain tasks that might not necessarily need to be done every day but that one should do at least once a week. Doing a deep cleaning on your fryers should be conducted on a weekly basis versus daily — particularly if you conduct all the daily maintenance tasks effectively and efficiently. The reality is that doing a weekly inspection of your refrigerator can do wonders towards enhancing the cleanliness and proper upkeep of your entire commercial kitchen. Ultimately, thoroughly cleaning all components of your commercial equipment — including all the food prep equipment as well as coffee machines and more is a great weekly task to aim for to ensure you have a sanitary and healthy commercial kitchen overall.
