Don’t underestimate the importance of keeping your office fridge clean. Kitchener Clean takes extra care to ensure your office kitchens and bathrooms are as clean or cleaner than what you would want in your own home - contact us today to sign up for total office care!
A weekly office fridge clean out is recommended to help keep your kitchen space clean and employee morale up. It’s unhygienic and dangerous to work in an environment where this isn’t taken care of regularly. If everyone in the office knows that this task will be completed on Friday afternoon, for example, it can be made easier by having items removed beforehand.
Here are the basic steps for a regular cleaning:
A consistent schedule will go a long way towards keeping your office fridge clean.
A memo is a great way to get everyone in the office on the same page.
We recommend this excellent memo from eatright.org. It reminds everyone to do their part to keep the office fridge clean and safe.
This memo includes the temperature your fridge should stay at, how to remove odours, and how to practice safe cleaning.
You can find more office cleaning memos here.
Print off this memo and post it on your office fridge or email it to all staff.
You want your business to run as efficiently as possible, and the break room is no exception.
Here are some helpful tips from Quill.com:
Labelling your items is extremely helpful.
On top of the weekly office fridge clean outs mentioned above, it’s good practice to really get in there for a deep clean every few months.
Here are some extra steps you can add to regular cleaning for that extra sparkle, again with help from Quill.com.

A deep office fridge clean out is recommended.
Along the same lines as fridge organization, it’s important to store food in proper containers to avoid foul odours and even leakage.
For example, don’t put cardboard leftover boxes in the fridge. You can either use lockable glass containers, Tupperware, or transfer the food to airtight, spill-proof bags in order to save space, minimize smell, and keep food fresher for longer!
It may take a couple extra minutes, but it will save everyone in the office a lot of potential grief later that week!
You can also sign up for an office compost program to help cut down on unnecessary food waste.
