How to Keep Your Pub Clean During Busy Periods

As the nights seem to continue to get chillier, many of us will be choosing to grab a drink and a bite to eat at our local pub after a long day at work.

It goes without saying that a clean pub is essential both for customer safety and the overall reputation of your business, but how can you keep your pub clean during busy periods when your staff are rushed off their feet? We’ll discuss our top tips.

Focus on high-traffic areas

While we know this may sound somewhat counterproductive because it’ll feel like you’re constantly cleaning and 2 minutes later the area is dirty again, focusing on high-traffic areas in your pub is vital during busy periods.

If these areas aren’t prioritised, dirt and grime can build up super quickly resulting in not only an unsightly pub but a health and safety hazard, too.

Don’t overcomplicate your menu

Think about it, if your cocktail menu features drinks with mounds of fresh fruit, more syrups than you can count, and a list of ingredients even the best bartender would struggle to remember, chances are you’re going to create more mess as you make them.

By keeping your menu simple yet effective, your pub will be able to run much more smoothly, giving both your customers and staff a better overall (and cleaner!) experience.

Operate a clean-as-you-go policy

Many hospitality workers would argue that there’s nothing more overwhelming than finishing a busy shift and seeing all the mess that needs cleaning up; it can feel daunting and never-ending.

By operating a clean-as-you-go policy, you’ll ensure staff clean up any messes, dirt, or spillages as they go. Although this may seem less efficient as it will somewhat slow service down slightly, customers (and staff) would much rather have a cleaner pub!

Of course, your pub will still need a deep clean at the end of the day, but you’ll be dramatically reducing the time spent by encouraging staff to clean as they go.

Hire professional cleaners

If you’re struggling to find the time (or motivation!) to consistently keep your pub clean, it’s almost certainly worth hiring professional cleaners to do the job for you.

Not only will your pub be consistently spotlessly clean, but you’ll have more time to focus on running your business and managing your staff.
