Spring Cleaning Tips For Restaurants

It’s that time of the year when all the mops, buckets and brooms have a sweep through the home or workplace. Having a good spring clean will give your living and working environments a new lease of life.
And you may find that your cooking equipment could benefit from a clean too.

Here are five tips on how to clean your free standing deep fat fryer.

1. Clean regularly. The more often you clean your fryer, the easier it will be to remove burnt on grease and foods. Using a long handled brush with soft bristles will gently scrub the large deep pot.
2. Filter and replace the oil frequently. For heavy restaurant use, the oil will need to be replaced once or twice a day. The oil will need to be completely replaced if it grows darker in colour, smokes at a low temperature or gives off a strong smell.
3. Brush the heating coils clean whenever the oil is drained. Before the new, or filtered oil, is added back to the fryer, use a long handled fryer scrubbing brush to remove bits of food from the coils. This will keep the heating element effective and limit burnt food particles released into the oil.
4. Keep up the appearance. Wipe the exterior of the flyer or a dry cloth or blue roll at the end of each day. This will prevent built up of grime and limit spill overs which will make the floor slippery.
5. 'Boil out' clean every three to six months. A 'boil out' will thoroughly clean your commercial fryer which should be filled with warm water  and simmered or boiled. Wearing rubber gloves, use a long handled soft bristle brush to dislodge any trapped foods. Drain the fryer, then scrub and rinse as you would after a frequent clean.

Colour Coding

Colour coding is used throughout a variety of industries and trades where health and safety is paramount, in particular catering and healthcare, as cross contamination will lead to illness. The colour codes – blue, red, green and yellow – designates cleaning equipment to specific areas of use.

Brought to you in a vibrant red, blue and yellow, the Jantex Microfibre cloths effectively trap dust and dirt when wiped across a variety of surfaces around the home or workplace. Suitable for damp or dry cleaning, these cloths can spring your cleaning into action.

The Jantex Bio Fresh Socket Mop is an antibacterial mop head which is highly absorbent and is a fantastic floor cleaning solution that is easy to assemble. You can find this mop head available in the colour codes yellow, blue and red.

Suitable for use with a range of our mop heads and broom heads are the Jantex clipex handles. The handle is supplied with four colour coded clips which are useful for identification purposes. 

The Jantex Mop Buckets are easy to fill and easy to pour. The high mop sieve is a useful feature that can be used when quickly wringing out any excess water from the mop fibres. This will allow the floor to quickly dry too so you can get on with the next cleaning task. These mop buckets are available in all four of the colour codes.

And when cleaning is in progress it is important to notify your customers with a wet floor sign to prevent any accidents.

With the temperatures rising, outdoors and inside, you may also find you are receiving some unwanted pests in the kitchen. So to keep those flies at bay we have the perfect solution - the Eazyzap fly killer. These quality commercial fly killers can cover up to 40 or 100 square metres with two UV tubes. And once those flies have been zapped, there is a removable catchment tray which can be emptied into the bins.

For further assistance with your spring cleaning, we’ve even designed a colour coded cleaning poster which identifies the cleaning equipments area of use.
