It’s time to floor it – how changing the way you maintain your floors could improve your efficiency and your reputation.
When you walk through your restaurant, how often do you look down? While you probably sweep and mop regularly, there’s a chance you’re overlooking some crucial floor maintenance details that could be affecting public opinion or the safety of your restaurant. Let’s take a look at what you might be missing and how to keep your floors – and your restaurant's reputation – sparkling.
However, the right tools are only as effective as your staff’s abilities – which means building a strong training and maintenance program. Set a floor maintenance schedule detailing all of the tasks, tools and standards for your restaurant, and make sure your staff is prepared to jump in throughout the day as needed. If staff is well prepared, a big spill during the dinner rush could be a walk in the park.
It’s also vital that your entire staff understands why a clean floor is important. The more they understand why, the less likely they are to cut corners and the more likely they are to self-regulate. Performing both routine and surprise walkthroughs can help catch and correct mistakes as they happen, so there’s less chance of falling out of step.
Of all the cleaning tasks in your restaurant, keeping floors clean and safe may be one of the most challenging. With careful planning, the right tools, training and a little hard work, you can ensure your floors stay clean – and diners keep walking through the door.
