How Often Should A Commercial Kitchen Be Deep Cleaned?

It’s likely that your kitchen will receive a basic clean on a regular basis – how frequently may depend on how often it is used. A school kitchen, for example, may only require a clean daily, whereas a commercial restaurant that serves lunch and dinner will require regular cleaning throughout the day.

A deep clean, however, is a more thorough, professional clean that must be carried out in addition to basic cleans. Commercial kitchens must fulfil certain requirements under health and safety law:

  • Commercial kitchens must be deep cleaned as often as required – the more usage, the more often a deep clean is required. In particular establishments that prepare multiple meals throughout the day and use equipment such as fryers may need more regular deep cleaning.
  • A detailed cleaning protocol must be in place to ensure that commercial kitchen cleanliness is consistently of the highest standard.

However, a deep clean can be carried out more often if necessary, if only to offer peace of mind that the facilities are in the best condition possible. One-off deep cleans should be completed in the following circumstances:

  • If new owners are taking over a commercial kitchen.
  • After a period of inactivity (for example, in a school kitchen at the end of a holiday, or a restaurant kitchen following lockdown).
  • If intensive use has been made of a kitchen.
  • If a commercial kitchen has been subjected to excessive dirt, such as construction dust or debris.
