Why would you use a cleaning schedule?
A cleaning schedule in a restaurant kitchen is mandatory piece of documentation. It allows to implement routine processes for cleaning and maintaining your premises in pristine condition.
This is also a great management and monitoring tool.
A cleaning schedule must contain the following :
- What needs to be cleaned
- Who needs to do it
- Cleaning product
- Precaution ( PPE etc..)
- Who checks it
While a cleaning schedule needs to be customised to suit your needs and your operation, there are things that are commun to every business.
This also something very easy to audit during inspections.
The schedule should be built in such a way that it doesn’t become counter-productive.
You should only list the essentials and avoid creating overwhelming lists.
