How To Keep Your Restaurant’s Carpet Clean
As the owner of a restaurant, you have many requirements when it comes to cleaning. Each cleaning checklist has to be completed fully and correctly so that your business is always in tip-top shape, ready for the next business day. Every item has to be thoroughly washed and sanitized each and every day, including the kitchen flooring, stovetops, ovens, utensils, pots and coffee makers, to name a few. There is also the front and the bar area - bathrooms, host stand, and all those wine glasses, as well. You have a great team, though, and everyone knows how to handle all of it.
Flooring in a busy restaurant can be a separate issue, however. Many eateries these days opt for hardwood floors, which have to be treated regularly to avoid damage from high heels, spills, and scratches from table and chair movement.
If your establishment has carpeting, instead, vacuuming nightly, along with spot cleaning, will go a long way in preventing potential mold growth and other potentially unpleasant circumstances. The carpets will still need a regular deep cleaning due to all of the foot traffic. Spills on carpeting don’t come up quite as easily or as completely as those on a hardwood floor. We also know you put a lot of thought and money into choosing just the right carpeting for your place of business, and a carpet in need of deep cleaning can look dull and worn, which will reflect negatively on your guest’s experience. So make sure a regular deep cleaning for your carpeting is on your cleaning checklist.
You may opt to have your carpet treated with a product that will repel spills and stains, and this can be really helpful. Shop around and make sure that the treatment you choose has been cleared for areas with high foot traffic to avoid slips, trips, and falls.
