Using a cleaning checklist for your commercial kitchen keeps your facility in top shape and helps employees follow a consistent cleaning schedule. Without this, important tasks are easily missed, which could cost you when your business is visited by a local health inspector.
We’ve put together a comprehensive checklist below, but staff should take care of routine tasks throughout the day, including: wiping down prep areas between tasks; always wiping down the grill between cooking different types of meats; switching cutting boards in between tasks; changing sanitizing water and rags frequently; and emptying trash bins when they’re full.
Here are some other commercial kitchen cleaning tasks to add to your daily, weekly, and monthly checklists.
