Commercial Oven Cleaning Made Easy!

Commercial ovens are the pillars of any restaurant kitchen and must be kept clean and sanitized with an effective maintenance plan. The problem is that they’re used so aggressively and often, that they’re prone to accumulation of grease, grime, food particles, and other debris. This is not only a health risk, but can also lead to smoke and other hazards like fires. The good news is; it’s easy to prevent any of these issues with a maintenance & cleaning program.

Here are 5 easy steps:
  1. Schedule daily oven cleanings for the interior of the oven. Schedule these in the evening so that the oven doors remain open allowing it to air out.
  2. Control grease and food particles that are typically left on the oven surface. Making sure to clean these in a timely manner will prevent crusting and hardening that makes future cleanings more difficult.
  3. Manage spills and boil-overs immediately. This is another issue that is typically neglected and results in difficult cleanings down the road due to hardening and crusting.
  4. Remove racks and wipe down walls and doors with warm water or industrial oven cleaner, like Oven Doctor (KE-108Q).
  5. Schedule monthly deep cleanings using industrial oven cleaner, like Oven Doctor (KE-108Q). These deep cleans should cover the interior and exterior of the ovens.

In conclusion, while commercial oven cleaning may not top anyone’s list of favorite things to do, it’s an important part of running a clean and high-performing industrial kitchen.

Eliminate flu viruses, coughs, and colds from spreading in your facility


Disinfecting kills 100% of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Only an EPA registered disinfectant will actually disinfect (Tip: An EPA number will be visible on the product label). An EPA-registered disinfectant has been tested and registered with the Environmental Protection Agency. As part of the registration process, the EPA evaluates the product efficacy and that the claims on the label are accurate. Sanitizing kills and reduces the number of bacteria on a surface by 99% percent but does little to nothing about viruses and fungi. Sanitizing decreases the population of bacteria to meet acceptable public health standards. The majority of cleaning/sanitizing/disinfectant chemicals purchased in retail stores are actually only cleaners and/or sanitizers. Cleaning removes dirt and bacteria from objects and surfaces. If you are using soap and/or water then you are cleaning. Cleaning lowers the spreading of bacteria but has little effect reducing the number of viruses or fungi. If there are 1 million bacteria, viruses, and fungi on a surface then an EPA registered disinfectant will kill 100% of them. A good sanitizer will reduce the number of bacteria down to 10,000 but does nothing about virus and fungi. Cleaning makes the surface look nice but not much else.

The bottom line:

Sanitizing is better than only Cleaning, but complete elimination of bacteria, virus and fungi is only accomplished when you Disinfect with an EPA registered disinfectant.

Here are some quick tips:

  1. You only need to disinfect surfaces and objects that are touched often. The most common surfaces that the flu virus camps out on are desks, countertops, door handles, keyboards and faucet handles. Use your EPA registered disinfectant on these surfaces daily (the flu virus can infect a person for up to 48 hours after being deposited on a surface).
  2. Use an EPA-registered product that both cleans and disinfects instead of using multiple products that only clean or disinfect.
  3. It’s not necessary to disinfect floors and walls other than in restrooms and locker rooms. It's OK to use a simple cleaning solution for floors/walls in hallways and common areas.
  4. Use EPA registered disinfectant wipes on electronics, phones and computers instead of liquid or aerosol disinfectants.
  5. Be safe and do not mix cleaners and disinfectants unless the labels indicate it is safe to do so. Combining products like chlorine, ammonia, and bleach can result in serious injury or death.
  6. To ensure you are getting an EPA registered disinfectant purchase your disinfectants through a specialty chemical company not retail stores.
  7. Use disinfectant bombs frequently during flu season, here is Kinzua Environmental's disinfectant, deodorizing bomb:

How to eliminate smoke, curry, and other stubborn odors from any room


Sooner or later every apartment building, hotel, and rental property will have a foul, stubborn odor that was caused by smoking, a fire, or cooking with spices and oils, including curry.


Smoke has properties of a gas and of a solid, so some heavy particles drop to the floor while others stay suspended in the air. This is why smoke is particularly hard to eliminate. You can clean every surface, repaint the walls and put down new carpet but there will still be floating particles in the air and HVAC system. Similar to smoke, cooking oil and spices at too high of a heat creates a vapor that suspends in the air and clings to the walls and ceiling.


A popular and easy-to-use solution to this problem is the PUNCH deodorizing bomb. It has a trigger that is pushed down and locks in place. A fine mist/vapor then totally releases for the next 30 minutes. The vapor captures and encapsulates all remaining mal odor molecules. The pleasant fragrance fades away over the next three hours after application, ultimately leaving a neutral, non-smell. PUNCH bombs are odor neutralizers not odor maskers. PUNCH Bombs are available in CITRUS, FRESH LINEN, MINT TEA and LEMON.


PUNCH-Citrus is also an EPA registered disinfectant and mildewcide. It kills MRSA TB, Influenza A, mold, mildew and much more.  

Removing Blood & Red Stains – Complete Quick Guide

Here is your blood and red stain removal quick guide from the KE Chemists: TIPS:
  1. It is easiest to remove blood and other red stains when they are still wet. Dried blood stains are infamously harder to remove.
  2. Also, be sure throughout the process to blot the stain, not rub it, as this will only push the stain further into the carpet fibers. Use the following steps to eliminate blood and other tough red stains.
Treating Stains on Fabric, Upholstery & Carpet: Carpet: Step 1: Apply Peroxi-Power with a trigger-sprayer. Step 2: If the stain has dried, brush it well to remove the surface deposit. Step 3: Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with Peroxi-Power and blot until the liquid is absorbed. Repeat steps two and three until the stain disappears. Upholstery: Step 1: Apply Peroxi-Power with a trigger-sprayer. Step 2: If the stain has dried, brush it well to remove the surface deposit. Step 3: Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with Peroxi-Power. Blot until the liquid is absorbed. Repeat steps two and three until the stain disappears, then sponge the spot with cold water and blot dry. Fabric: Situation 1: If the stain is fresh, spray Peroxi-Power directly to the stain (3 triggers are provided no charge). Situation 2: For dried stains, brush the stain well to remove the surface deposit, then spray and soak in Peroxi-Power for 1 hour or more. Launder it as usual. If the stain remains, rewash using the type of bleach that's safe for the fabric. INSIDER INFORMATION: Why blood stains are so hard to remove? Hemoglobin is in blood and is the protein that carries oxygen throughout your body. Think of the hemoglobin like a paperboy or papergirl; throwing oxygen to all the muscles and organs as they travel throughout your body. Hemoglobin also acts similar to garbageman, grabbing onto and transporting other molecules around the body and just because hemoglobin is out of the body doesn’t mean it stops doing its job. So, the hard-working hemoglobin grab onto and bind with the carpet or any other surface that blood is exposed to. So, as you are trying to get the blood out, this group of stubborn little hemoglobin are holding on for dear life! That’s why Peroxi-Power works so well. The solution is formulated with powerful stain removing peroxide agents and specialty emulsifiers that safely break the bonds that any organic material is forming, like our hemoglobin to the carpet. WANT TO BE PREPARED NEXT TIME? Peroxi Power™ is a specially formulated cleaner that effectively removes grease, ink, coffee, blood, wine, kool aid, and a variety of other stains from carpet and upholstery.
