Kitchen Flooring

Posted by Les (Les), 13 February 2004
Hi all,
Just had call from one of our Clients.
Asking if we can have a go at cleaning up there Kitchen flooring which has accumalated a build up of grease.
We don't clean their Kitchen area normally but are happy to provide the service.
Apparently they have been informed that an 'Enzyme' product will do the job, my feeling is that the floor needs a heavy duty clean up 1st befor applying any, (if any) enzyme. The Building and floor is very old and as far as I am aware only gets a daily tidy up from their staff.
Suggestions from you in the best way forward will be appreciated.

As it is grease i would go with the Brillo degreaser (good gear) either neat (careful as will be slippery!) or a strong solution.  

obviously you will need to make sure it is all rinsed off so no one slips and hurts themselves.  

hard for any of us to say for certain without being there but for me...
grease = degreaser

Nuff said

Hi Les,

Check out this company and a product called CATERSAN (Apparently it degreases and sanitises without rinsing) but i ve not tried it myself!.

Hi Les

The Enzyme based products you are looking for do exist.  They are considerably different and a bit more specialised than chemical cleaners/degreasers and use a process called bioremediation.  My company supplies a product called FPT-600 which is precisely what you are looking for, I already have in excess of 12 companies using it for kitchen, duct, and canopy cleaning.  If you would like to find out more please contact me, I even have a video showing the product use if you require.

Hi les Im a new member I work for shropshire county council cleaning D.S.O. I recently was called in for advice on the same problem, the best way is using a steam cleaner most of the time there is no need for chemicals so reducing the risks it works try it hope this helpful to you cheers tom.

Thank you all for the various answers......however due to cutbacks in their cleaning budget  Cry Cry they no longer want to have the job done.
