A Healthy Environment Starts with a Clean Cafeteria

A Healthy Environment Starts with a Clean Cafeteria

If you want to get the best out of your team members, it is necessary that they eat healthy. Several businesses provide a catering service to their employees. Similarly, schools serve up daily breakfasts and lunches to students so they can concentrate without being distracted by hunger.

However, with the prevalence of food-borne illnesses and the lost work hours they can lead to, it is in the interest of employers to provide a spic and span environment where employees can enjoy their meals.

Three areas to focus on when cleaning a cafeteria

Kitchen, dining room and floors cleaning can go a long way in preventing the spread of germs and sickness.

  1. The kitchen

    All food preparation surfaces, equipment, dishes, and utensils should be correctly cleaned after each use.
  2. The dining room

    Tables and chairs should be wiped down as needed during service, and then cleaned thoroughly after service.
  3. The floors

    Spills during service should be cleaned immediately, and employees must be kept away from the wet area until it dries. Just as the dining room, after service, a thorough cleaning is necessary.

Distinguish sanitizing and disinfecting

Make your cafeteria a healthy place by disinfecting AND sanitizing.

  1. Disinfecting

    The purpose of disinfecting is simply to reduce the number of germs by using a disinfectant.
  2. Sanitizing

    ​On the other hand, sanitizing means making an environment healthy by removing the unhealthiness causes with the goal of eliminating almost completely, 99,999%, of all germs.
