Cafe furniture cleaning & maintenance tips

Excellent customer service and delicious food are topped up by a great environment. It’s not just the food and hospitality that attracts a customer to a hotel or restaurant space. Moreover, the customer is drawn more to the environment, ambiance, decor, and overall cleanliness and hygiene the restaurant space offers. Maintaining and cleaning restaurant furniture goes a long way in enhancing the reputation of your establishment.

Here are a few tips that will help you through this.

Cleaning of the Dining Room

Strict cleanliness and hygiene protocols must be followed in the dining area. Visitors may decide to turn around and leave if the dining room appears to be unhygienic. Proper sanitizing of the surface areas which diners come into contact with such as table tops, restaurant bar stools, or chairs must be done so that the customers feel safe. Surface areas can be cleaned with a clean/unused towel. It is also important to disinfect menus and condiment bottles regularly.

Maintain your restaurant furniture

It is very crucial to keep a check on all furniture and replace or fix it if any of the furniture is damaged. Visitors pay close attention to minor details like the look and feel of the furniture, and how comfortable the furniture is, therefore it is wise to keep a check on all these things. While disinfecting and daily cleaning are fundamental, it’s also important to address deeper issues pertaining to the state of repair of furniture. 

Indoor restaurant furniture

Indoor is more inclined to damages that are caused by customers and staff. As compared to outdoor furniture, indoor furniture is much easier to clean and maintain and also requires less maintenance. 

Daily dusting and cleaning surfaces with a damp cloth with the use of a cleanser are enough. Use warm water and mild detergent to make a cleaning solution. Clean the tops before and after use. This solution can be used to clean many indoor parts like laminated table tops, granite table tops, resin table tops, and much more. 

Outdoor Furniture

Outdoor furniture is exposed to a lot of harsh elements like dust, pathogens, molds, heat, and so on and hence requires a rigorous cleaning process to ensure the safety of the customers dining on them. It is essential that these surfaces are checked, cleaned, and maintained regularly. The use of all-purpose cleaners to maintain these surfaces for cleanliness and hygiene is a must. 

Dust the umbrella shades regularly to avoid accumulation that may reduce their aesthetic appeal. Use a dry cloth regularly to remove dust and debris from the iron surface. Power wash your outdoor area once in a while to remove dirt and dust. 

Preventing Unwanted Visitors

Employing pest control is essential. Restaurants are susceptible to infestation because of the abundance of readily obtainable food they use thus attracting a certain group of unwelcome guests. 

Keeping both the kitchen and dining space tidy, storing food accordingly, and recognizing the signs of infestation as soon as possible are preventative measures to keep these pests at bay. A reliable and competent exterminator can resolve this disgusting inconvenience.


Basic cleaning and maintenance will improve the longevity of your restaurant or café furniture. They also help in cutting replacement and repair costs in the long run.
