Cleaning Food Service Areas

Maintaining a clean environment is important for the health of those who enter your facility. It’s even more important in kitchens and food service areas, where germs are likely to populate. A kitchen sink can be one the of the dirtiest places in any facility. That’s why Buckeye’s food service products promote a sanitary and contaminate-free environment.

Buckeye’s food service products include Dysh Concentrated Liquid Detergent, FoodMaster Concentrate Heavy-Duty Cleaner Degreaser, and Liberate® Heavy-Duty Foaming Cleaner. Each product is designed to remove grease and stains from surfaces in food processing areas. From dish cleaning to stovetop cleaning, Buckeye offers food service cleaning products for kitchen appliances, dishes, food service areas, and more.

Properly disinfecting and sanitizing food contact surfaces is vital to the health of those visiting your facility. Kitchen and food-contact areas accumulate germs quicker than most areas in your facility. Because you prepare food in these areas, it is especially important to keep surfaces disinfected. To keep both food contact and non-food contact surfaces sanitary in any facility, use Sani-Q2, a one-step disinfectant/sanitizer/fungicide/virucide/deodorizer.

Making sure food service areas are properly cleaned and disinfected is equally as important as using the right products. For schools and universities looking to improve their maintenance program and create a healthy environment for students, Buckeye offers the Honors® Custodial Maintenance Program. The Honors program covers all aspects of cleaning, making maintenance procedures easy and rewarding. From food service cleaning to summer cleaning procedures, Honors presents easy-to-follow procedures that are researched and proven to increase efficiency.

Honors is an online program, available 24/7. It uses videos and other educational tools like PowerPoints and product literature to train staff in proper cleaning and maintenance procedures. Honors provides tests on each training video to ensure staff members are able to carry out the procedures outlined in each video. Supervisors can also view test scores for each staff member.

Buckeye’s various training programs cover proper cleaning and maintenance procedures for any facility type. Learn more about cleaning in food service areas and other areas in your facility by contacting your local Buckeye representative.

What Can Buckeye Floor Finishes Do for Your Floor?

Floors in any facility can accumulate dirt fast. Foot traffic drags in mud, bacteria, and all kinds of debris. Keeping dirt from getting embedded in your floors can make a huge difference in your facility’s appearance.

At Buckeye, our floor finishes are designed to provide maximum clarity, durability and cleanliness so your facility can look its best. We combine the innovation of Renaissance® Performance Polymers and Microban® technology to keep your floors clean and beautiful.

Renaissance Performance Polymers

Traditionally, floor finish manufacturers purchase polymers from companies who don’t specialize in making floor finishes. In order to maximize the durability and clarity of a floor finish, Buckeye uses Renaissance Performance Polymers. Renaissance designs polymers specifically for Buckeye floor finishes, replicating exact specifications to create consistent results and provide the best value for our customers.

Clarion® 25 with Microban Technology

The latest addition to our Hard Floor Care Program is Clarion 25 with Microban technology. Microban provides continuous antimicrobial product protection for the useful lifetime of the product. When microbes come in contact with the product surface, Microban protection penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism and disrupts the cell, making the microorganism unable to grow and reproduce. In Clarion 25, Microban helps keep floors cleaner, longer at no additional cost.

Clarity and Durability

Many floor finishes powder and yellow over time, giving your floors a dirty appearance no matter how often you clean them. Renaissance Performance Polymers make it possible for Buckeye to provide a floor finish with unmatched clarity and durability. One school Maintenance Director spoke about Clarion 25 floor finish, saying, “You could tell the difference in clarity right away. The floors look much better. We no longer have that yellow buildup everywhere. We have received several compliments on how much better the floors look.”

Buckeye floor finishes dry clear and stay clear to promote a true top scrub and recoat program. Their durability helps extend strip cycles. These features help reduce both product and labor costs. Buckeye’s complete Hard Floor Care Program is designed to provide savings to any facility.
