Tips for a Cleaner Commercial Kitchen

Tips for a Cleaner Commercial Kitchen

It’s crucial that you make sure your kitchen is as clean as possible. This helps to protect your customers and staff from harmful germs and helps the dishes look their best. Whether it’s by approaching your linen washing differently, by establishing procedures, or by preparing and organising more effectively, here are some of the best ways to keep your commercial kitchen clean!

Establish Procedures

The first thing you’re going to want to do if you’re looking for a cleaner kitchen is to establish some procedures. For example, do you have a recognised list of tasks and jobs that need to be completed before, during, and after service? If you have complicated tasks then have you provided instructions in accessible locations? These are the types of questions you need to ask yourself.


One of the surest ways to have a cleaner kitchen is to establish a cleaning rota or to have pre- and post-service duties. These will include loading the dishwasher, polishing cutlery, dealing with food waste, and resealing ingredients.


Preparation and Organisation

As all chefs know, the preparation and organisation that goes into cooking good-quality food is absolutely crucial as it can make or break a dish. The last thing you want over Christmas and the New Year is poor organisation and a lack of preparation which will bring your services down.


Starting food preparation early, demarcating sections of the kitchen, creating a natural food-to-customer path, and using storage space wisely are some quick fixes that will help your service run a lot more smoothly. If your chefs and cooks know where everything is and what processes to follow then there will be a lot less mess to clean up in the first place.



A big part of staying clean in the kitchen involves staying on top of linen washing. Lots of kitchen towels will be required and probably in different colours depending on your uniform. Then uniforms will need to be washed so the chefs and cooks look the part and avoid spreading any germs. On top of this, table linen will need to be washed each night to prepare for guests the next day.


This can be a lot to stay on top of, especially for hotels where bed linen and towels will need to be accounted for as well. You could take the time to devise a washing system to make sure it all gets done on time or you could rely on specialist linen suppliers to do this for you. Here at Stalbridge Linen, we succeed in making our clients’ business operations run a lot smoother, leading to excellent customer satisfaction ratings.
