The hectic pace and demanding traffic that occurs during rush hour in an industrial kitchen cause residues, splashes, and culinary accidents to reach the floors and adhere, increasing the complexity of a deep cleaning since as the days go by, dirt begins to accumulate and grow in the hidden places of the floor.
For this reason, it is of great importance to create a deep cleaning routine that, in addition to preparing the necessary elements such as utensils, kitchen plates and stoves, pots, plates, and countertops; guarantees to move all the elements of the kitchen, allowing to pay attention to the hidden places with the accumulation of residues, eliminate all the grease and splashed waste, to recover a clean and odorless environment and thus enjoy a culinary space completely away from infections, shiny, fresh and disinfected counters that invite you to make culinary creations and demonstrate the gastronomic professionalism that exists within your business.
For both safety and hygiene, industrial kitchen floors must be kept in excellent hygienic conditions to protect customers' health and comply with health codes and regulations. Here are some tips:
Before cleaning the floor, check that the drains are not clogged and that they work correctly.
Commercial kitchen floors, which are typically ceramic, should have a non-slip surface to encourage proper sanitation and reduce the chance of a slip and/or fall accident.
If industrial scrubbing buckets are used, they should be cleaned every day. Dirty buckets and rags can spread contaminants on the ground, increasing contamination problems.
A rubber broom should be used to remove moisture from floor drains for faster drying.
Industrial machinery should be used at least once a week to thoroughly clean kitchen floors. This will serve to loosen any dirt, grease, and oils that may have stuck to the floor.
Buckets, drainers, chemicals, and all floor care equipment must be stored raised, off the ground, on shelves, or racks. This helps keep equipment clean and deters pests.
HOW CAN WE REMOVE STAINS CORRECTLY?
Stains on this type of flooring can always be solved depending on their origin:
Moisture stains: In general, with water, it is common for damp or mold stains to appear; these can be cleaned with warm water and neutral soap.
Food stains: If the floor has an organic stain, it can be removed with a little ammonia on the stain and let it work overnight. The next day, in the morning, the surface can be cleaned with soap and warm water.
Grease stains: Immediately clean the grease with a cloth or napkin and add a little degreaser to the damage. Next, wash the surface with water and neutral soap.
Shoe stains or dirt: Mixing water and hydrogen peroxide to clean dirt is recommended. Subsequently, use crockery soap to remove the last stains and leave the floor impeccably.
Oxidation stains: To remove rust marks, it is necessary to use special products for this purpose; look for those that are specifically for your type of floor. It is advisable to test these products in areas of poor visibility.
Kitchen floor care is achieved by constant maintenance programs; daily, weekly, and other longer cleaning programs must be carried out depending on the type of floor and the amount of dirt that accumulates in the space.
In addition to the care of a deep cleaning, preventive maintenance done by professionals such as MB Floor Solutions should be considered, which will bring your floors and spaces back to life with the deep cleaning service.

The importance of washing floors with some frequency, as well as polishing, disinfecting, and polishing all surfaces so that they last much longer, should not be forgotten.
