Dry Ice Cleaning in the Food and Beverage Industry
Maintaining a clean and properly sanitized restaurant, bar, or coffee lounge is so important. It’s crucial not only to keep customers and employees safe from infection or poisoning due to bacteria but also does wonders in improving the image of your business. Unfortunately, due to the many edible items food and drink service establishments interact with on a daily basis, completely cleaning everything is almost impossible. Even with a complete sanitization wipedown after close every night, there are bound to be some errors. Reusing a dirty washrag, not spraying a contaminated area, or using an expired cleaning product are all risks associated with cleaning by normal means. But what if there was another solution? Fortunately, there is one more option your foodservice business can take when it comes to sanitation– dry ice cleaning. Here’s how dry ice cleaning works and how it can benefit your food and/or drink service establishment.
Safety Benefits of Dry Ice Cleaning
When using harsh chemicals for cleaning, your restaurant or bar may run into some problems. For instance, these chemicals can eventually wear down surfaces due to their acidic nature. In addition, many of these chemicals can produce toxic fumes, such as bleach, which can make employees feel sick or even cause permanent damage from over-exposure. With dry ice cleaning, there is no need to worry. Dry ice is odorless, non-toxic
, and waterless, so there is no worry about compromising employee health. Additionally, dry ice cleaning is non-abrasive, so your delicate cooking tools or other essentials won’t be at much risk of breakage.
It Can Be Used Anywhere
Dry ice cleaning is a smart solution for disinfection because it can clean even the smallest of surfaces. This means that there is no disassembly required to use it. We all know that kitchens contain lots of intricate equipment that would be a serious pain to have to completely disassemble to clean. But since dry ice cleaning is usually done via aerosol, there is no need to take anything apart, even the most sensitive of surfaces. In addition, no wiping down afterward. There is no liquid form of dry ice, so it will not leave behind anything that will need to be wiped down with rags or other cleaning supplies later. This also limits the risks of potential injuries of cleaning staff and employees.
Dry ice cleaning can be used in almost any sector of the food and beverage industry: from restaurants to food production and manufacturing. Learn more about it today!
