Handy Outdoor Dining Checklist

Handy Outdoor Dining Checklist - Cleanse Tec

1. Start from the Ground Up

As ordinary people pass by your restaurant, they are transformed into potential patrons. The first experience of your storefront in the busy urban cityscape is where their feet land, the smells they experience, and the visual effects of your standard of cleanliness.

As you can see in our City Sidewalk Cleaner Videos, sanitation workers often drag refuse and greasy bags across the public sidewalk to be loaded into garbage trucks.

2. Appealing Dining Surfaces

There’s not much else to say about sanitation. It’s simply not optional! Clean and sanitize in one spray. Our Rinse Quat is an EPA certified sanitizing solution.City sidewalk dining tables chairs  - Cleanse-Tec

3. Pleasant Smells

This is more than simply a pleasantry. Our brains are hard-wired to track and identify safe food sources. Our nose knows. When fruit flies find grease, soils, and organic refuse, they thrive. A bio-active product like Fly Away, attacks the debris that attracts pests of all sizes. A daily a spray in your bins, buckets, and garbage pails guarantees fresh odors and a pleasant experience for customers.

Keep Pests Out of Your Kitchen!

kitchen pestsSpring is Here– And So Are the Pests!

Ahhh.. spring.  The snow has melted, the sun is shining, the flowers blooming…and rats, mice and racoons have come out to play.  Not all critters are welcome guests, especially when you are trying to keep a clean and sanitary kitchen.  Pests can really put a damper on your reputation as well as your budget.  If they get into your kitchen, they can ruin your food, leave droppings and other messes and can scare customers away faster than you can say “rat poison”.  Here are some tips for keeping your establishment pest free.  And, of course, your Cleanse Tec representative is always available for tips and advice on ways to keep your kitchen spotless!

  • Pests are not invited to this party: Be sure to make that clear by cleaning up food scraps and other sources of food, repairing water leaks, and increasing ventilation.
  • Not getting past this velvet rope:  Make areas less accessible to pests by repairing holes and installing barriers.
  • Trap those buggers: If despite your best efforts, those pests still find their way into your business, use traps to catch and release them for a more humane way to treat the problem.
  • Exterminate when necessary:  Especially in old buildings like many in NYC, pest problems may have been going on for years and the problem is bigger than a few traps and precautions can handle.  As a last resort, bringing in the heavy artillery (exterminators) may be your best solution.  It is certainly better than trying to run a food business with a pest infestation!
  • In this case, trash is trash: Although we are typically an Earth friendly company, any products contaminated with pesticides should be sent directly to the landfill and not for recycling or reusing.

Keeping pests at bay is an ongoing and seasonal issue that affects almost every commercial kitchen.  Make it part of your business to ensure you follow the tips above and keep your space sparkling clean with products from Cleanse Tec
