Dining at your restaurants with friends or family is part of our culture. It’s an enjoyable occasion people use to break bread and strengthen their bonds with one another. While meals shared at a restaurant are always enjoyable to your customers, it’s important to understand that there are germs that await your customers while dining out if the proper cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting procedures are not taken. A study from Cleaning & Maintenance Management showed that a restaurant menu can contain 185,000 germs per square centimeter. For reference, a public toilet has about 500-1,000 germs per square centimeter.
Although the table is generally cleaned by a member of the restaurant staff from customer to customer, it typically is not disinfected. Moreover, many surfaces that are touched frequently rarely get cleaned or disinfected at all. A study in the Journal of Medical Virology reported that cold and flu viruses can survive for 18 hours on hard surfaces, like menu’s, chairs, condiment dispensers. Usually the germiest places that harbor bacteria and viruses are menus, high chairs/booster seats, tabletop, eating utensils, condiment dispensers, chairs and lemons.
-‘With heightened awareness of infectious disease due to the COVID-19 pandemic that hit the World in 2020, restaurants have begun to rethink their cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting practices. Still there is a heightened risk. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) considers indoor dining at a restaurant among the highest risk places for COVID-19 exposure, especially if other CDC guidelines and rules are not followed.
