Cleaning sinks in a professional environment

This post is going to deal with best practice for cleaning sinks.


Important: Always use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when undertaking any cleaning task and follow the manufacturer’s product use and where relevant dilution guidance.

Select an appropriate non-abrasive kitchen cleaning product and apply to a clean disposable cloth or non-scratching sponge.

Allow the cleaner 3-4 minutes to work.

Use the cloth or sponge to clean the sink or basin, taking care to clean around the taps, overflow and drain outlets.

Rinse the sink thoroughly and dry with a clean disposable cloth or allow to air dry.

Remove stains with an appropriate non-abrasive kitchen stain removing product diluted to manufacturer’s instructions. Always check that the product chosen is compatible with the sink or basin you have in your kitchen.

To remove build-ups of limescale from the sinks or taps choose an appropriate kitchen limescale removing product diluted according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Apply to the sink and use a disposable cloth or non-scratching sponge to remove any limescale. If necessary, agitate and remove scale using a coarse toothbrush.

Rinse the sink thoroughly and dry with a clean disposable cloth or allow to air dry.
