The following checklist below may vary depending on the restaurant’s requirements and traffic, but we recommend to always include these 11 must-do jobs:
1. Overhead Dusting
Dust the tops of cabinets and door jams. Most areas can be accessed with long-handled dusters, but a ladder is the safest way to reach ceiling fans, fire sprinklers, and smoke detectors. Dust light diffusers, light fixtures, bulbs, air vent grates, and the top of entertainment hutches.
2. Exhaust System - Ducts, Hoods, Fans and Vents
Removing excess oil and steam cleaning of kitchen exhaust hood and vents.

4. Walk-in Chiller, Freezer and Food Storage
Walk-in chiller, freezer, and food storage holds the most vulnerable portion of the restaurant’s inventory, so it is crucial to keep the contents fresh, organized, and clean to prevent the spread of foodborne illness.
5. Floor Drain
Floor drains are also essential in cleaning the kitchen restaurant. Cleaning and removal of food residue and sticky oil and grease from the floor drain as well as unclogging of pipes to avoid flooding during the operation.

7. Comfort Room
Thorough cleaning of the comfort room. Helping maintain as healthy an environment as possible, a clean and sanitized comfort room serves as a reminder to guests that your business values their patronage. This is why in particular hard-to-reach areas and deep-seated dirt need professional treatment regularly including wiping and sanitization of the toilet, fixtures, handles, washbasin, and countertop.
8. Windows, Sills and Frames
Vacuum window tracks to remove dust and debris. Polish interior glass, clean sills, and wipe down frames and hardware. Remove any stickers or residue of acrylic and silicone that is left during the construction.
9. Carpets, Rugs and Upholstery

Deep cleaning, stripping, waxing, polishing, and crystallization of natural stone floorings, ceramic tiles, concrete, wooden, and elastic floorings (e.g. PVC, Linoleum, and Rubber).
Cleaning the exterior is also important to overcome the power of nature to destroy. Once nature takes over, the structure will start to deteriorate. Mildew and mold, once it gets hold, can damage your paint, materials, and surfaces. Proper cleaning of entrance area, walkway, parking, and terrace can prolong and preserve the property structure. Likewise, reducing the weathering process and eliminate insects, debris, and undesirable natural stain. Improved overall curb appeal further increases customers’ enjoyment and satisfaction of the premises.
