Spreading Disease:

The Best Tip:

The Best Tip Perhaps the single best way to keep flies out of your kitchen is to keep it clean. The cleaner your commercial kitchen, the less likely flies are to come in initially. This includes offering everything a solid cleaning after each service. Appliances and counters need to be raised to provide for easy cleaning both under and behind them. Make certain the dining room is just as clean as the kitchen, too.

From the Outside In:

From the Outside In You’ll also want to be careful about bringing flies in. Given that most of your population will likely come in as your customers do, when you bring deliveries through the door, or when employees come in and out. Make certain you have screens to prevent them from coming in, and that they’re in good repair. You may also want to install two sets of doors, offering an added boundary for them to cross. You can also set up specialized fans to help blow them out the door before they ever come in.

Beware the Patio:

Beware the Patio If you have a patio seating area for your guests, you could have added trouble. Make certain your servers clear any used tables immediately, and if you have trash cans on the patio, you’ll want to ensure they have tight fitting lids to keep the flies out .
