What is the reason behind pest infestation in restaurants?

Ironically, pests are fond of the same food that customers eat and your restaurant. With a kitchen having an abundance of water and food, it’s the best place for pests to reside. Kitchens at restaurants are different than your home kitchen. There are frequent spills, and unmanaged trash with food and still water. These are the things that attract pests to your kitchen.

In addition to the above, restaurants have many storage areas and cupboards. Pests tend to live in areas that are dark and damp, and that is why you will frequently find them near storage areas. Furthermore, the personal hygiene of workers in restaurants can also bring in pests. That’s why all staff members should take special care of their hygiene.

Unmaintained equipment and furniture are also the leading cause of pests in your restaurants. There might be some equipment in the kitchen that might not be frequently used, so it’s not cleaned. That is completely wrong and it should be scheduled for cleaning frequently. There are some machines where tiny particles of food get stuck and they also attract pests. So, regular cleaning should be done for all such machines.
