Keep Your Business Fully Compliant While Protecting Patrons and Staff

Providing a Clean, Healthy Kitchen Environment
A commercial kitchen that “looks” clean doesn’t mean it is clean. SOLID will work to assess your kitchen’s needs and provide a customized surface care plan on a planned, periodic schedule that works best for the facility and eliminates downtime. We can help with:
Disinfection Services for Surface Confidence
As restaurants and bars continue to fight Covid and the influenza season around the US, they will need to ensure their spaces are clean and disinfected. Going beyond the standard spray and wipe approach that can cause cross-contamination, our trained technicians can effectively and efficiently clean the hardest-to-reach surfaces with electrostatic sprayers. The electrically charged disinfectant clings to and envelopes every side of vertical and horizontal surfaces, dramatically increasing the effectiveness of killing harmful viruses.
Resourced & Ready
SOLID is resourced and ready to help. We will work with you to develop a customized, scheduled program to maintain your clean, healthy, and industry-compliant kitchen. SOLID is a national team of self-performing surface care experts. We currently have 35+ office locations with a team of 500+ surface care experts caring for over 700 million square feet of commercial flooring annually across all 50 states and Puerto Rico – and growing!
Kitchen floors become dirty quickly from high foot traffic, fallen food, and equipment grease. Although floors aren’t considered a food contact surface, improper cleaning leads to bacteria growth and food buildup, which can cause food-borne illness. Our deep cleaning and maintenance methods leave floors not only clean but also dry and safe, preventing slips, trips, and falls.
Save Time and Money with Proper Cooking Oil Protocols
Did you know that, when correctly performed, cooking oil filtration cuts a commercial kitchen’s oil cost by 50%? SOLID’s trained and certified professionals remove cooking oil safely. Using one service contractor to deep clean your facility, perform certified hood vent cleaning, and waste removal of oil waste will save staff time and lower maintenance costs.
Increased Patron Satisfaction
Patrons and employees are reassured, and satisfaction increases when their surroundings look and are clean and healthy. In addition, we can work with your facility to provide antimicrobial coatings to reduce nosocomial infections.
Keeping Regulators Happy
Our specialized surface care solutions ensure your facility meets the highest levels of cleanliness to pass required inspections. We perform exhaust hood system inspection and deep cleaning per NFPA Code 96 requirements, oil filtration and oil waste removal, and commercial Kitchen deep cleaning, repair, and restoration services. SOLID provides certificates, reports, and other paperwork to show services were performed to NFPA code.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can your team meet NFPA 96, Table 11.4 cleaning frequencies?
Yes, we can clean to meet the NFPA schedule of inspection for grease buildup, which is:
- Monthly: Systems serving solid fuel cooking operations and high-volume cooking operations, such as 24-hour cooking, charbroiling, or wok cooking.
- Quarterly: systems serving low-volume cooking operations.
- Semi-Annually: systems serving low-volume cooking operations, such as churches, day camps, seasonal businesses, or senior centers
Do we have to close our restaurant when you come to clean?
No. SOLID provides service when you need it: our team can work after business hours or during times when your business is closed.
How often do you provide services? What services do you recommend?
In addition to performing specialty services like oil filtration, we recommend cleaning, washing, and scrubbing exhaust hoods once a month, which is crucial to keep the air quality healthy. Our professional technicians are trained to use safety equipment to avoid chemical burns and damage to the eyes. We also recommend monthly spray-and-vac of steam/hot boxes to prevent bacteria growth which can cause food-borne illness.
Can SOLID assist with tile and grout restoration?
Yes, if you’re considering deep cleaning, polishing and restoration, stain removal, applying a topical and impregnating sealer, or a high-performance coating, SOLID can help. We can also assist with grout cleaning and coating, repairing chipped or cracked grout, and adding sealants and colorizations to restore and protect grout lines.
Can you repair or restore metal kitchen counters and equipment?
Yes, we can assist with routine maintenance or total restoration of stainless steel appliances and counters in the typical commercial kitchen. A few services we offer include scratch removal, re-graining and highlighting, field oxidation, finish changes, oiling or lacquering, restoration, and protective coatings and coverings.
How do you care for resilient flooring like LVT?
Additional care is needed to extend the vinyl life, preserve aesthetics, and protect your investment. Planned, periodic maintenance can include deep cleaning, applying wax and specialized sacrificial wear layers, and high-performance coatings. The frequency of this maintenance is based on usage and foot traffic in the area.
What kind of high-performance coatings do you offer?
SOLID’s expert craftsman can apply innovative, semi-permanent high-performance coatings to resilient flooring. The coatings keep floors cleaner and healthier, retain their appearance longer, and reduce maintenance operating costs.
What type of fabrics or textiles do you care for?
Restaurant seating is often treated like napkins. It’s not pleasant to think about, but that is the reality of eating and drinking. A restorative clean with proven methods and chemistries will improve the appearance of textiles and give employees and guests confidence that they are in a clean and healthy space.
