Expert guidance from P&G Professional on how fish and chip shops can reassure customers with cleanliness concerns

While we’re still in the heart of the winter, cold and flu season is once again in full swing – and as the spread of Omicron continues, there is no room for complacency when it comes to stemming the current tide of the pandemic.

Hospitality staff are often short on time, and as such, they need products that are easy to use yet highly effective, and cleaning regimes that are simple to follow but deliver stellar results.

To ensure your chippy is in tip-top condition this winter, P&G Professional recommends following three guiding principles: prepare, establish, and enforce:

PREPARE: Being ready for everyday infection control can help when an outbreak occursESTABLISH: Consistent and frequent cleaning policies and procedures are criticalENFORCE: Enforcing the ‘good behaviour’ of cleaning and disinfection can help ensure it’s done right
Have a written and posted plan for infection control   Ensure a stock of cleaning products, tools and supplies   Train employees on PPE and keep it availableProper cleaning and disinfecting procedures should be part of every employee’s training plan   Managers are the role models – exhibit the behaviour you want to see   Post your policies and make them easily accessibleCatch your employees cleaning and reward the actions   Have frequent spot checks   Train by doing – when you notice improper procedure, correct it by showing the right way

In addition to an effective and enforced cleaning regime, it’s important to choose high quality products to provide a thorough clean and reassure customers. P&G Professional offers a range of trusted household name brands to help business owners keep their chippies pristine.

Two products in the Flash Professional portfolio –  Flash Professional Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner and Flash Professional Disinfecting Power Degreaser – provide cleaning professionals with effective formulas that both clean and disinfect hard surfaces.

When used according to label directions, both products are proven to kill 99.99% of bacteria and viruses, including flu viruses and SARS-CoV-2,[1] the virus that causes COVID-19, providing reassurance to customers that your establishment is not just clean, but hygienically clean.

Flash Professional Multi-Surface cleaner[2] offers disinfection and fast contact time to kill 99.99% of bacteria and viruses in as little as 15 seconds[3], and can be used on a variety of surfaces, such as tables, counters, chairs, door knobs, drawer or cupboard handles, and windows.

Meanwhile, Flash Professional Disinfecting Power Degreaser[4] leverages its degreasing power with the additional benefit of disinfection. What’s more Flash Professional Disinfecting Power can be used on all kitchen surfaces, is food contact safe and kills 99.99% of bacteria and viruses[5].
