Frequency of Commercial and Industrial Kitchen Cleaning

Why wait until your oven is smoking and filling your kitchen with harmful odours before you would consider getting the ovens professionally cleaned?

Cleaning a commercial or industrial kitchen might not be at the top of your "favourite" to-do list, but we know it has to be done regularly to avoid hefty fines or even closure due to non-compliance with the Health and Safety Act of South Africa.

There are certain commercial kitchen guidelines when it comes to the frequency of when a commercial and industrial kitchens need to be cleaned, all depends on the cooking volume of the kitchen. It is also important to use food-safe chemicals when you clean your commercial or industrial kitchen. Using unsafe chemicals in the kitchen can contaminate the food and the food preparation area.

Ensuring a safe and clean kitchen in your restaurant will not only protect you from hefty fines, but it will protect your employees and your customers. ECS Deep Clean Industries only uses food-safe chemicals and these products are also available to buy directly from ECS Deep Clean Industries.
