San Diego Restaurant Cleaners is a full service restaurant and food industry janitorial company.  Keeping restaurant floors clean is crucial for hygiene, safety, and overall aesthetic appeal. Here’s a step-by-step guide, which we can implement to ensure your San Diego restaurant floors are thoroughly deep cleaned:


  1. Plan and Schedule:
    • Choose a time when the restaurant is closed or least busy, typically after hours.
    • Notify staff about the cleaning schedule.
  2. Gather Supplies:
    • Cleaning agents: degreasers, disinfectants, floor cleaners specific to the type of flooring.
    • Tools: brooms, dustpans, mops, buckets, scrub brushes, floor scrubber machines, wet/dry vacuums.
    • Protective gear: gloves, masks, non-slip shoes.
  3. Clear the Area:
    • Remove furniture, mats, and any movable items from the floor area.
    • Sweep or vacuum the floor to remove loose dirt and debris.

Cleaning Process

  1. Identify the Floor Type:
    • Different floor types (tile, concrete, hardwood, laminate, etc.) require different cleaning methods and products. Ensure you use appropriate cleaners for the specific floor type.
  2. Spot Cleaning:
    • Inspect the floor for any spots or stains. Use a targeted cleaner to treat these areas first. For grease stains, use a degreaser.
  3. General Cleaning:
    • Tile and Grout:
      • Mix a cleaning solution appropriate for tile floors.
      • Scrub the grout lines with a brush.
      • Mop the tiles thoroughly, ensuring to remove all cleaning residues.
    • Concrete Floors:
      • Use a pH-neutral cleaner for sealed concrete floors.
      • For unsealed concrete, use a stronger cleaner but ensure it’s safe for concrete.
      • Scrub with a brush or use a floor scrubber machine.
    • Hardwood Floors:
      • Use a wood-safe cleaner.
      • Avoid excessive water; use a damp mop or microfiber mop.
    • Laminate Floors:
      • Use a cleaner specifically designed for laminate.
      • Avoid using too much water to prevent damage to the laminate.
  4. Deep Cleaning:
    • Use a floor scrubber machine for large areas. Ensure the machine is set to the correct settings for the floor type.
    • For heavily soiled areas, allow the cleaning solution to sit for a few minutes before scrubbing.
  5. Rinse:
    • After scrubbing, rinse the floor with clean water to remove any cleaning solution residue.
    • Use a wet/dry vacuum to remove excess water from the floor.
  6. Drying:
    • Ensure the floor is completely dry before replacing furniture and mats. Use fans or air movers to speed up the drying process.

Final Touches

  1. Inspection:
    • Check the entire floor to ensure no spots were missed and that the floor is clean and dry.
  2. Replace Furniture and Mats:
    • Carefully move furniture and mats back to their original positions.
  3. Sanitizing:
    • Use a floor sanitizer to ensure the floor is not only clean but also germ-free, especially in kitchen and dining areas.

Maintenance Tips

  • Daily Cleaning:
  • Weekly Cleaning:
    • Perform a more thorough mopping and scrubbing of the entire floor.
  • Monthly Deep Cleaning:
    • Conduct a deep clean monthly to maintain floor integrity and appearance.
  • Employee Training:
    • Train staff on proper floor cleaning techniques and the importance of immediate spill cleanup.
  • Use Floor Mats:
    • Place mats at entryways and in high-traffic areas to reduce the amount of dirt and moisture tracked onto the floors.
