3 Restaurant Sanitation Tips
Learning how to keep your restaurant in the best sanitary condition is not just a health and safety issue, it can also quickly become a financial issue for business owners, and workers at restaurants.Once sanitation falls under optimal standards, it doesn’t take long for pests such as flies, rodents, and roaches to quickly call kitchens, dining rooms, and garbage areas their sanctuary. To prevent pest issues from causing harm to your business. Platinum Pest Solutions in the Chicago & Indianapolis regions are here to help with any and all of your pest related issues and questions! But for now, let’s give you 3 sanitation tips that will help you keep pests in your restaurant at bay!
1 Look Up, Down and All Around: When we think of pests, we often look down to the floor. Truth is, rodents and roaches are just as likely to be above your head traveling along pipe chases, in drop ceilings, and harboring in doorways and behind walls. Don’t just clean the floor, “Clean Up”- as in UP on the ceiling, walls, doorways, and vents. Any food residue or grease splatter up there is another food source for them to feast upon when the lights go out!
2 Don’t Let Your Sanitation Efforts go Down the Drain: Ignoring those dirty drains is providing the perfect breeding ground for roaches and flies. Undisturbed, filled with organic “gunk”, and most likely rich with moisture and food debris creates the “perfect storm” for pest breeding. Don’t let it happen on your watch- regularly clean out those drains and treat them weekly with an active enzyme to eliminate organic build-up and send the flies packing!
3 Out of Sight is Not Out of Mind: Most pests in a restaurant, are not visible during the day. They harbor until things quiet down and come out to play at night. Be sure to monitor those “out of sight” areas in your establishment to be sure there in no activity. Regular cleaning of unseen areas is just as, if not MORE important, to maintaining a pest-free environment.
