Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital

Commercial kitchen equipment cleaning is crucial to the health and safety of patrons and staff while ensuring compliance with relevant food safety regulations. Regular cleaning of kitchen equipment, ductwork, and hoods not only prevents fires and other safety hazards but also helps to improve working conditions and overall hygiene.

Since 1973, Interior Maintenance Company (IMC) has offered comprehensive commercial cleaning services to customers across the Mid-Atlantic. Our capabilities for the kitchen include kitchen equipment detail cleaning, floor-to-ceiling detail cleaning, and hood cleaning.

One of our long-time customers, Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital, called IMC when they started having problems keeping their kitchen maintained on a daily basis. For over 25 years, we’ve helped this customer keep their facility clean by performing specialty cleaning services such as kitchen hood cleaning, air duct cleaning, and more.

The Challenge

It can be challenging for institutions like Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital with large dining facilities and heavy-volume cooking to keep their kitchens clean. Because of this, the hospital needed additional assistance for their dedicated staff to keep up with daily cleaning tasks. Without regular cleaning, the institution could face several issues, including:

  • Health code violations or near misses
  • Increased fire risk due to grease buildup
  • Reduced food quality and customer satisfaction
  • Decreased equipment lifespan and frequent breakdowns

To keep their cleaning on track and prevent these issues, Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital turned to IMC. Now, we perform cleaning services on a quarterly basis, giving their internal staff more time for daily maintenance.

The Solution

To address Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital’s unique cleaning challenges, IMC developed a customized cleaning plan based on their specific equipment and other hygiene requirements. Their quarterly cleaning service includes the following:

  • Interior and exterior cleaning of kitchen equipment and appliances, including:
    • Ovens
    • Grills and grill burners
    • Stovetops
    • All accessible kitchen equipment surfaces
  • Cleaning of hood backsplash, walls, and doors
  • Cleaning of all conduit, floor piping, PVC piping, and floor drains
  • Detailed cleaning of all chrome surfaces, including:
    • Counters
    • Tables and table legs
    • Sinks
    • Fixed stationary equipment
    • Ledges
  • Cleaning the inside and outside of all trash cans
  • Cleaning of all cold storage and refrigeration units
  • Machine scrubbing and pressure washing the floor

The Result

With deep and specialized cleaning tasks taken off their shoulders, the staff at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital can better focus on smaller daily cleaning operations. By choosing to share cleaning duties with IMC’s highly trained teams, they benefit from increased food safety compliance and stronger inspection scores. We were also able to help them:?

  • Reduce fire risks and related incidents
  • Improve equipment lifespan, saving on costly replacements
  • Enhance production/service speed and operational efficiency
  • Improve food quality and customer satisfaction
