Restaurant Back-of-House Cleaning Checklist

As well as front-of-house cleaning, the cleanliness of the back-of-house is just as important. It is important so that cross-contamination and the spread of bacteria doesn’t occur.

The team at Synergy Stocktaking have compiled a useful daily checklist for ensuring the utmost cleanliness of the back-of-house of your restaurant.


  • If there are splashes on the walls, wipe them down
  • Ensure that the grill, griddle, range, flattop, and fryer are cleaned. It is important to get underneath the equipment too
  • Ensure that the foil lining on top of the ranges, grills, and flattops is changed
  • Other equipment, such as coffee makers, microwaves, toasters, and meat slicers should be wiped down
  • Prep area surfaces should be disinfected
  • Clean beverage dispenser heads in the soda fountains, and bars should clean the tips of the soda guns
  • Wash the utensils, smallwares, flatware, and glassware and let them air dry overnight
  • Clean the sinks
  • Wash rags, towels, aprons, and uniforms in the washing machine
  • Refill soap dispensers and replace empty paper towel rolls
  • Sweep walk-in refrigerators and storage areas
  • Take out the trash and recycling
  • Disinfect the waste disposal area and clean the trash cans
  • Sweep and mop the floors


We have also compiled a cleaning checklist for B&Bs.
