As a cleaning company with a multitude of contracts at hotels and restaurants in Central London, a recent article about dining out caught out attention and reconfirmed what we already know, it’s not just about the food and the service, it’s about cleanliness and hygiene too.
We’re a captive audience when out for dinner and waiting for our meal, it give’s us time to observe what’s going on around us and any lapses in hygiene. Once seated at a restaurant table, we can remain in the same spot for hours taking in all of our surroundings and many restaurants now also have viewing windows or open kitchens giving us extra opportunities to see food being prepared and an insight into behind the scenes but what it also does is provide more opportunities to witness any slip up in hygiene standards.
Our attention can be drawn to movement, restaurant decor, ventilation units and lighting to name but a few and a recent study gained that along with poor service and a long wait for food, hygiene standards were also found to be a high concern with us diners, especially in the restrooms. Over 80% of diners said they believed if the restrooms were dirty it reflected the standards of the kitchens and over 75% said they wouldn’t go back.
Add to that sharing pictures on social media which more than half of us do when dining out, any lapses in cleanliness and hygiene are instantly seen by a much wider audience than just those actually eating out meaning that restaurant hygiene has never been more important.
The ongoing cleaning operation should be seamless with cleaning schedules on display for diners and regular deep cleaning taking place.
We as a company can provide you with professional cleaning services incorporating kitchens and restrooms and can provide a free quotation at a time of your convenience along with advice to ensure if you’re a Restaurant Owner or Executive Chef etc. you’re meeting the highest possible hygiene standards.
