Sanitise, clean, descale, your kitchen

This blog post will cover best practice for sanitising kitchen equipment.


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.

Sanitising kitchen equipment

Apply kitchen sanitiser onto a cloth according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Clean the equipment surface.

You should rinse the surface thoroughly with water after having applied the sanitiser to remove any traces of chemical residue.

Dry the surface with a disposable cloth or paper wiper.

Cleaning kitchen floor drains

Test the efficiency of the kitchen floor drain by pouring a large jug of water down it. It should drain quickly and freely.

If it drains slowly, make sure all food debris is removed and then select an appropriate drain cleaning product and use according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Once the drain has been cleaned flush through with hot clean water.

Water descaling

Limescale can build up in any place or inside any appliance or equipment that uses water.

You should inspect appliances on a regular cycle to identify any build up of limescale so that an appropriate limescale descaling product can be used. Such action will help to increase the life of the appliance and contribute to more energy efficient usage.

Always check the manufacturer of the appliance’s instructions and follow them when using a descaling product.
