Kitchen deep cleaning – not your cup of tea, but our bread and butter.

The Gold Standard for
Commercial Kitchen Deep Cleaning

Regular deep cleaning is an essential aspect of commercial kitchen maintenance – working to create a clean, safe environment for the preparation and production of food. Taking steps beyond regular upkeep, Ingot Services’ deep cleaning program helps commercial kitchens across the UK meet a number of legal obligations towards both customers and staff, whilst dealing with commonly overlooked hygiene issues.

Suitable for kitchens with even the most effective daily hygiene routines, our deep cleaning service combines industry expertise with proven techniques – removing even the toughest debris and grease build ups from both commonly used, and inaccessible areas including behind cookers and fridges, high shelves, and between walls.

In addition to contributing towards regulatory compliance, deep cleaning works to ensure the safety of customers, minimising the risk of reputational damage brought about by hygiene issues, whilst establishing a high standard of cleanliness to be maintained by staff and kitchen users.

Fully Tailored Service

As long established industry experts, the Ingot Services team understand that scheduling deep cleaning can prove challenging for bustling commercial kitchens. That’s why we’ve worked to develop a highly flexible deep cleaning format, available on both a one-off, and regular service, available both within, and outside of working hours, causing minimal disruption.

Regular Deep Cleaning

Our regularly scheduled deep cleaning service is highly suited to commercial kitchens subject to frequent use. Covering both heavily used and frequently overlooked areas, this service ensures all spaces and equipment are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, creating a safe environment for food preparation.

Most health and safety regulations heavily advise that commercial kitchens should be subject to deep cleaning at least once per year, however, Ingot Services’ qualified experts are happy to assist in establishing a suitable deep cleaning frequency for your space via consultation call.

One-Off Deep Cleaning

Whilst regular deep cleaning offers a convenient way to stay on top of both cleaning and regulation, one-off cleans can be arranged at any time, and is especially appropriate for those;

  • Taking over a new kitchen
  • At the beginning and/or end of a period of disuse (e.g. start/end of summer season)
  • Experiencing higher usage has than normal

Commercial Kitchen Cleaning

Legislation and Requirements

Maintaining consistently high standards of cleanliness across all spaces and equipment has become increasingly essential to the continued success of commercial kitchens across the hospitality industry, with commercial hygiene laws and regulations – particularly the Food Safety Act 1990 and Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 – subject to regular enforcement.

All UK commercial kitchens – from those serving local cafes to Michelin Star restaurants – must actively adhere to stringent regulation surrounding both general cleanliness, and specific regiments in order to operate safely, and without legal consequence.

Ingot Services’ wide range of specialist cleaning services works to cover all commercial kitchen cleaning requirements. From biennial duct cleaning performed by registered Vent Hygiene Elite technicians, to regularly scheduled deep cleaning, our offerings are built to satisfy legal requirements and obligations. In addition to this, correctly implemented specialist cleaning can bring a number of benefits to commercial kitchens, including;

Frequently Asked Questions

What is kitchen deep cleaning?

Deep cleaning takes kitchen maintenance and cleaning multiple steps further than daily routines conducted by staff. Working to ensure the optimum cleanliness of all elements of a commercial kitchen, Ingot’s deep cleaning service is conducted by highly accredited professionals, and includes the following in addition to all ‘regular’ cleaning undertaken;

- Underneath and behind cookers and fridges

- Around the feet of prep surfaces

- Seals of fridges

- High shelves

- Between walls and prep surfaces

- Between units and equipment

- Inaccessible parts of ranges, grills, fryers and other equipment

Quite apart from the regulatory requirements, it is every catering outlet’s worst nightmare to have customers fall ill or to acquire a reputation for bad hygiene. However, regular Kitchen Deep Cleaning minimises this risk, protecting your customer’s health and avoiding damage to your business’s reputation. In addition, seeing Kitchen Deep Cleaning taking place sends a powerful message to all your staff that you take hygiene seriously and expect them to do the same. Further benefits include improved equipment performance, a minimised risk of infestation, and improved levels of fire safety.

How often should a commercial kitchen be deep cleaned?

The frequency at which a commercial kitchen should be deep cleaned depends on a number of factors - primarily usage. Most legal requirements indicate that deep cleaning should be undertaken on a regularly scheduled basis - every 6 months for most commercial kitchens. However, many spaces undergoing heavy usage may require more frequent cleaning in order to stay in line with all health and safety requirements.

Ingot Services’ deep cleaning experts are pleased to offer a free, no-obligation consultation service, during which we are able to establish a deep cleaning frequency most suited to your kitchen’s condition and usage levels. In addition to this, Ingot offer a one-off deep cleaning service, particularly suited to kitchens reopening after a period of disuse, or subject to particularly heavy use for a shorter period of time.

How much does it cost to deep clean a commercial kitchen?

The cost of commercial kitchen deep cleaning is highly dependent on a number of factors, including the size, and layout of the kitchen requiring cleaning, the appliances and equipment involved, whether your cleaning service is offered on a contractual or one-off basis, and your selected provider. As deep cleaning requirements can vary so significantly, the vast majority of service providers will charge within a set price range according to individual circumstance.

Ingot services are proud to offer our clients a free, no-obligation consultation, during which we’ll evaluate your ductwork cleaning requirements, and establish a price, which can be later sent over email.

How long does it take to clean a commercial kitchen?

The amount of time taken to complete a commercial kitchen deep clean can depend on a number of factors, including the amount of cleaning required to bring the space in line with environmental health regulations, the appliances and equipment requiring cleaning, and the provider selected to perform the service.

Though any amount of time may seem too long for cleaning to disrupt regular work within a commercial kitchen, Ingot Services are proud to offer deep cleaning on a 24-hour basis, meaning cleaning can be undertaken during regular hours of closure.

Can kitchen deep cleaning be done during operating hours?

As deep cleaning is such a significant operation, involving the potential dismantling and reassembly of essential equipment, and the occupation of essential space by multiple technicians for an extended period of time, it typically cannot be completed in an ‘open’ kitchen.

As a result of this, Ingot Services have designed a flexible deep cleaning service, taking into consideration the disruption caused by deep cleaning. Available on a 24-hour basis, our commercial kitchen deep cleaning service may be completed outside of operating hours, minimising disruption.

What are the benefits of commercial kitchen deep cleaning?

Deep cleaning is a highly beneficial service to commercial kitchens of all size and scale. As it is listed as a requirement by many regulatory bodies and insurers alike, deep cleaning’s primary benefit is obvious - it keeps commercial kitchens and businesses in line with legislation and regulation, allowing them to continue operating without prosecution. In addition to this, regular deep cleaning conducted by accredited professionals offers the following benefits:

- Creates a safer working environment for kitchen users

- Encourages staff to maintain a clean, hygienic working environment

- Improves food hygiene levels for customers

- Reduces the risk of contamination and infestation

- Improves equipment and appliance performance and lifespan

How do you deep clean a commercial kitchen?

Deep cleaning a commercial kitchen involves a wide array of tasks, each tailored to the particular requirements of individual kitchen spaces and clients. Typically, Ingot’s deep cleaning service starts with the cleaning of the ceiling surface and walls - before moving on the cleaning of all kitchen surfaces and appliances, covering (but not limited to):

- Underneath and behind cookers and fridges

- Around the feet of prep surfaces

- Seals of fridges

- High shelves

- Between walls and prep surfaces

- Between units and equipment

- Inaccessible parts of ranges, grills, fryers and other equipment

- Floors and flooring

This cleaning is conducted in line with all environmental health and health and safety regulations, using specialist, industry-standard cleaning equipment to ensure an optimum level of cleanliness across all elements of a commercial kitchen.

How do you keep a commercial kitchen clean?

Staying on top of cleaning in a commercial kitchen environment is essential to the safety of both staff and customers. Ingot services believe that though cleaning routines should be tailored to meet the unique requirements of individual kitchens, in order to keep a commercial kitchen clean, regular cleaning and deep cleaning should be used hand-in-hand.

Though establishing and performing a daily cleaning routine is highly beneficial to the general cleanliness of a commercial kitchen, one of the best ways to ensure hard-to-reach places and complex kitchen elements are effectively cleaned is conducting regular deep cleaning.

When performed properly by trained professionals, deep cleaning works to catch all elements missed during regular cleaning, and effectively clean, degrease, and disinfect any space or equipment staff are unable to, including fryers and ovens - which may require disassembly and reassembly in order to ensure an optimum level of cleanliness.

What does a commercial kitchen deep clean include?

Whilst regular, daily cleaning conducted by staff helps commercial kitchens stay on top of cleaning tasks, it is impossible to expect those cleaning without significant allocated time or access to specialist equipment to reach every space requiring cleaning within such a heavily used and complex environment. This is where commercial kitchen deep cleaning can help.

Conducted by accredited specialists, commercial kitchen deep cleaning works to clean and disinfect every aspect of designated kitchen space, from frequently cleaned food prep surfaces to the frequently overlooked or inaccessible space behind counters. Ingot Services’ deep cleaning service works to clean, degrease, working spaces, walls, floors, inaccessible and high level areas, and equipment - disassembling and reassembling where necessary, to achieve optimum levels of cleanliness and safety.

Following the completion of a deep clean service, Ingot will provide documentation and certification to evidence the level of cleaning conducted for legal and insurance purposes.

How often should a commercial oven be deep cleaned?

The frequency at which a commercial oven (or any commercial kitchen equipment) should be cleaned is highly dependent on the amount of use it experiences. Though the majority of commercial ovens should be deep cleaned at least once per month, many may require more or less cleaning according to usage.

Ingot Services’ deep cleaning experts are pleased to offer a free, no-obligation consultation service, during which we are able to establish a deep cleaning schedule most suited to your kitchen’s condition and usage levels. Contact our experts today to further discuss your requirements.
