The Benefits of Commercial Sanitation

How clean is clean? This question frequently vexes those who need to maintain clean, sanitary spaces for food prep, presentation, and overall health. Companies may use regular staff to complete basic cleaning tasks, but it is absolutely possible for a space to look clean while harmful bacteria and microbes are still present.

For many restaurant owners and other commercial businesses, hiring a professional commercial sanitation team is key to maintaining cleanliness in their surroundings.

Why Is Sanitation a Concern?

Sanitation is crucial in restaurants and kitchens as clean surfaces are essential for preparing food that is safe to eat and prevents contamination. Sanitary surfaces also ensure that food remains safe once it has been served to customers. Maintaining proper sanitation also helps to protect the health of staff who handle food on a regular basis.

However, sanitation is not limited to food-related businesses. Commercial sanitation services can also be beneficial for other types of facilities such as office buildings that may need specific areas sanitized after a disaster or if contaminants are found in the HVAC system. Similarly, production facilities can benefit from regular sanitation services to ensure that their products are clean and healthy for the end user and to keep the employees safe and healthy.

How Does Safe Kitchens Complete Sanitation?

Microorganisms such as listeria, salmonella, and others can be highly resilient, and traditional cleaning methods such as using bleach or heat may not be sufficient in eliminating them. Cross-contamination, through practices such as using the same sponge in multiple areas or transferring microorganisms via hands or utensils, can also increase exposure. Safe Kitchens employs multiple methods to create a sanitized environment and tests to ensure that all bacteria and microbes have been effectively removed.

Dry Vapor Cleaning

Dry vapor cleaning is a highly effective method for sanitizing food preparation surfaces and other key areas in your facility. The process uses superheated water to generate vapor, which leaves behind minimal to no water residue on surfaces. This method is widely considered the gold standard in cleaning technology as it’s very effective in destroying most microbes and bacteria, cleans quickly, and does not use any chemicals. This makes it particularly suitable for organic-focused restaurants and production facilities.

Cleaning on a regular basis can help prevent cross-contamination by identifying issues that may arise on specific dates or batches. Properly sanitizing food preparation surfaces can greatly reduce the risk of food poisoning or microbe contamination of food. The methods used by Safe Kitchens ensure that your facility is kept clean and hygienic for the safety of your customers and staff.

ATP Testing

Safe Kitchens uses ATP testing to confirm the effectiveness of the sanitation process. ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) is a chemical produced by living organisms, and measuring it allows us to determine the number of living bacteria and microbes remaining in an area after cleaning. The test is done on-site and involves taking a swab from the surface, then measuring the ATP count to ensure that it falls within safe limits.

ATP testing units can be purchased for public use, but it requires special training to use them effectively and not all units are equally accurate. Safe Kitchens only uses the highest-rated units to ensure the safety and health of our clients.
