Keep Food Clean with Commercial Kitchen Pest Control

Posted on Jul 29, 2013

Commercial kitchens need to be kept extremely clean in order to maintain health codes and protect the safety of customers.  However, one of the challenges of any kitchen is that warm temperatures and an abundance of food attract a variety of pests.  Creatures such as roaches, ants, and rats will tend to congregate where food and water are available.   However, the presence of such pests can pose a significant risk of contaminating food and damaging the reputation of a commercial kitchen.  Steps need to be taken to ensure that commercial kitchens stay clean and pest-free.


If your commercial kitchen does not suffer from a pest problem, you can take steps to prevent future problems by managing food and drainage.  Make sure to clean up crumbs on counters and floors, and keep all food, including food waste, sealed.  Keep all your appliances clean in order to avoid attracting pests.  In addition, make sure that you do not leave standing water in the kitchen, since this can be an ideal breeding ground for pests.  Take care to make sure that your sinks are draining properly, and that you aren’t leaving buckets or other containers full for more than a day.
