Cleaning School Cafeterias to Avoid Lingering Odors

In many school cafeterias, the smell of fried foods mixes with the scent of peanut butter sandwiches and lingers on for hours after the children have gone home. Grease left behind on surfaces and food particles dropped on the floor cause these lunchtime odors to stick around long after the final bell. Thoroughly cleaning school cafeterias is vitally important, but the traditional cleaning methods of mops and rags simply spread grease and bacteria around instead of removing them. The minute a mop or rag gets rinsed in a bucket of cleaning solution, the solution becomes contaminated and will redeposit the dirt onto another surface. Kaivac has two separate systems that avoid this problem. Their systems use cleaning solution to loosen and rinse away dirt and grease, and then vacuum up the soil and moisture to be disposed of safely.

 

Tables and Work Surfaces

 

Cafeteria steam lines and dining tables are in contact with hundreds of children each day, each with his own set of germs to spread. This complex conglomeration of bacteria, plus the actual food crumbs the children drop, combine to form a perfect breeding ground for unpleasant odors that stay around for a long time. The KaiFly surface cleaning method removes more than twice as much dirt and grease as traditional rags and buckets, leaving your tables clean and odor free.

 

Using the KaiFly system is as simple as using traditional surface cleaning methods: Mix the cleaning solution according to the directions on the bottle, wet an applicator pad or the surface directly, and spread the solution on the counter or table surface. Wipe down all the surfaces in the room to allow the solution to penetrate greasy spots and stubborn dirt. Then, use a squeegee to wipe and remove all the moisture from the flat surface. The cleaning solution will take the dirt, grease, and bacteria along with it, eliminating any possible odor sources.

 

Cafeteria Floors

 

Dropped food and grease are an even bigger problem when it comes to cafeteria floors. Cooks and other workers walk on these surfaces dozens of times a day, picking up a variety of contaminants on the bottom of their shoes. They then walk into the clean areas away from the kitchen, which can spread the dirt and grease into clean areas. Problems like a these call for a superior cleaning solution like Kaivac's OmniFlex AutoVac.

 

The AutoVac works on hard floor surfaces, cleaning as well as an autoscrubber but at a fraction of the cost. Simply fill the bucket with solution, attach the AutoVac attachments, and walk behind the machine as it cleans your floors. When you're cleaning school cafeterias, the floor is the most important component, and a study showed that the OmniFlex AutoVac picks up almost twice as much dirt and debris as a traditional microfiber mop. Cleaner floors means fewer bacteria left behind, which can eliminate stale or smelly odors.
