Germiest Kitchen Areas – GlanHealth Cleans & Sanitizes All Food Prep Surfaces

Commercial kitchens and restaurants are designed for production and food safety. The key to preventing foodborne illnesses from food preparation environments is knowing where germs originate and, more so, where germs congregate.

While sanitizing food preparation countertops and equipment is obvious, hidden areas trap grease, dirt, and dust providing an environment for germs to proliferate. Established in 1944, the National Sanitizing Foundation (NSF) is a global, independent organization that facilitates the development of public health standards through tests and audits that certify products and services. According to the NSF, the “six ‘germiest’ kitchen items” in a study include:

  • Refrigerator vegetable compartment
  • Refrigerator meat compartment
  • Blender gasket
  • Can openers (handheld and electric)
  • Rubber spatula
  • Food storage container with rubber seal

Additional hidden areas to be addressed in food preparation environments include:

  • Floors
  • Walls
  • Ceilings
  • Doors
  • Windows
  • Mops and cleaning equipment
  • Ventilation, grates, ceiling fans
  • Cutting boards
  • Countertops
  • Appliances
  • Utensils
  • Dishrags, towels, sponges, and scrubbers
  • Garbage disposals
  • Sinks, drains
  • Hands and body
  • Uniforms
  • Personal protection equipment

Addressing all hidden areas in a food preparation environment requires frequent deep cleaning and sanitizing using the right products and procedures. In the past, addressing all hidden areas where germs congregate would normally require frequent use of highly toxic materials such as bleach, chlorine, or iodine.

Now there is a much simpler, timesaving, and cost-saving non-toxic solution designed for food preparation environments and the culinary professionals that operate these facilities.

Used in the food sanitizing industry for 90-years and classified as organic salts (can also be synthesized), products containing quaternary ammonium compounds top the government’s recommended list of products for restoring industries and reopening businesses.

Ammonium is nonirritating to the skin, as it holds similar properties as detergents. The natural surfactant properties and long-term sanitizing effectiveness of QACs simplify the way that commercial kitchens and restaurants maintain daily operations. QACs are non-corrosive, non-flammable, non-toxic, and eco-friendly. Combining cleaning and the power of sanitizing simplifies food preparation environment maintenance by staff.
