Cleaning brooms, dust pans, squeegees and brushes


Best Answer Charles.C, 30 August 2017 - 07:51 PM

I just wanted to know the most effective way for food safety

 

Hi yogiv,

 

Ok.

 

JFI, there are some previous discussions here on this topic but no problem to add some more.

IIRC it's usually a chapter in textbooks on sanitation with requirements mainly involving (a) how to clean, (b) how to sanitise in respect to chemicals / SOPs / time.

 

It sort of relates to what you are using the brooms to do, ie contact. I have never seen a SOP for dustpans.

 

Personally (not dressings) for brooms I am familiar with soaking overnight in a bucket / solution of a few thousand ppm chlorine. IIRC some people prefer to elevate the items so as to dry which is generically a usually preferred approach.

 

What procedure are you using at the moment ?

 

No doubt you can expect a variety of preferred methods.

Hello all,

 

I am an intern at a dressing manufacturing company. I am writing work instructions for sanitation and I need your expertise on cleaning of brooms , dust pans, squeegees and brushes effectively.

Hi yogiv,

 

Apologies for ignorance but what is a "dressing manufacturing company" ?


Kind Regards,

Pretty much the same thing. I havent seen anything for the dust pans and the squeegees.
