Commercial kitchens are often very busy, operating from early hours in the morning to late hours at night. Your staff or a designated team member responsible for tidiness make sure the workstation is clean after a day’s work.
Daily clean-ups are crucial in maintaining the cleanliness of your kitchen. Unfortunately, no matter how well your staff does their job, this is not enough. Each kitchen needs a top to bottom clean every now and then.
The Risks of an Untidy Kitchen
Without a deep clean your kitchen risks accumulating hidden dirt and moisture. Both can result in the growth of mould and bacteria, which can pose a significant health threat.
Fungus is dangerous to the health of your staff and customers. It can cause and contribute to health conditions such as asthma and allergies.
Bacteria that can appear in commercial kitchens include: E Coli, Salmonella and Listeria. All of them can cause serious health issues not limited to the digestive system.
Another risk of the lack of a more thorough professional cleaning are pest issues. It is only during a deeper clean that all potentially hidden nests and larvae are eliminated.
To make sure none of these problems appear in your commercial kitchen and cool rooms, schedule deep cleaning services regularly. The best choice is to hire trained professionals such as us at Lotus Commercial.

Cool Room Deep Clean
A cool room is an important part of any commercial kitchen. That is where all temperature sensitive products such as fruit, vegetables, meat or seafood are stored. The cleanliness of this area because of its function is crucial to food safety.
Unfortunately, many businesses don’t pay enough attention to their cool rooms. This area is an in-and-out zone during the day and employees do not spend much time there. It is easy to see how it may be overlooked during a daily clean.
We are a professional cool room cleaning service provider. We will help you ensure that your cool room adds to the overall compliance protocols in your kitchen.
During our cool room cleaning procedure we will take care of the following:
- All internal ceilings & walls where accessible
- The external surfaces of condensers where accessible/li>
- All doors & lights where accessible/li>
- All walls with a HACCP certified mould inhibitor/li>
Please note that to provide our excellent commercial cleaning services, we need clear access to your cool room.
