Keeping workplace fridges clean and tidy is an ongoing issue for many businesses. Not only is it unhygienic, but the fridge can quickly create an unpleasant sight and smell when it’s not cleaned properly. Because they deal with cleaning communal kitchens, we’ve asked commercial cleaning experts in Adelaide, for the best tips on how to clean your company or business fridge.
When it comes to Commercial Cleaning a Refrigerator in Adelaide, you first need to complete empty the fridge. Turn off the fridge at the wall and unplug it. Put anything that needs to stay cold or frozen into a chilled esky, or ask all your employees to take home anything of importance before you tackle cleaning the staff room fridge. Any containers that are taken out and need to be put back in the fridge, ensure they are cleaned and wiped down with a cloth and soapy water. Discard any items that are out of date or that are starting to go bad. When doing a full clean out of the fridge, make sure you empty out all the trays and compartments, these can be washed in the dishwasher, or soak in baking soda and water in the sink before you wash them.
It’s all about the clean
Commercial cleaning of your Adelaide fridge doesn’t necessary mean using harsh chemicals. White vinegar is a great natural alternative to bleach and will kill majority of mould. However, if you don’t like the smell, lemon juice, salt, and water will work well and smell nice also. For areas where the grime is thick, create a thicker paste of baking soda and water, and leave to soak those spots for a small amount of time before using a blunt knife or scourer to scrape away. A vacuum cleaner can be used to clean any hard to reach crumby areas inside or around the outside of your fridge, also be sure to use it to clean the dust from the back of the fridge. Use dish washing liquid and water to clean the outside of your fridge, and use surface spray and a microfibre cloth to wipe away any fingerprints.
Enjoying your clean fridge
Once your fridge is all clean, commercial cleaning companies in Adelaide have a little trick to help keep nasty fridge smells at bay. Simply combine coffee grounds and baking soda in a bowl, and leave in the fridge. This will act as deodoriser and help your fridge to smell better for longer. Put your food items back in the fridge, ensure that they are all wrapped up tightly, or are in clean containers. This could be the ideal time to remind staff members to label their food items clearly with their name, and with the date that they popped the food in the fridge. With these tips you will be able to keep your business fridge nice and clean.
