Client – Atlantic College
Project – Clean Canteens & Commercial Kitchen Cleaning

What did the client need?

Atlantic College is a renowned educational institution located on the stunning coastline of the United Kingdom. The Vale of Glamorgan college has gained international recognition for its commitment to providing a unique and transformative learning experience for students from around the world.

Atlantic College required a comprehensive kitchen cleaning service to clean canteen and bring the surfaces of their canteen back up to a clean and safe condition. They wanted to ensure that the kitchen met hygiene standards and provided a sanitary environment and clean canteens for their staff and students.

How did we approach it?

To address the client’s needs, our team of two experienced canteen cleaners were dispatched to Atlantic College. We collaborated closely with the client to understand their specific requirements and ensure that all areas of concern were addressed during the clean canteen process. Our commercial kitchen cleaning process is always carried out with relevant legal regulations in mind. Our clean canteen teams are in regular communication with the Food Standards Agency, and keep updated with the Food Safety Act 1990, Food Safety & Hygiene Regulations 2013 and The Food Safety Regulations 1995. 

By engaging in detailed discussions and site inspections, we gained valuable insights into the unique cleaning requirements of the college’s canteen area. The client shared their expectations regarding cleanliness and hygiene, highlighting specific areas of concern such as heavily trafficked zones, food preparation areas, dining spaces, and kitchen equipment.

Through open communication and collaboration, we established a comprehensive cleaning plan tailored to Atlantic College’s needs. We considered the college’s schedule to minimise disruption to their daily activities.

What was the solution?

To meticulously clean canteen and all hard surfaces in the canteen area at Atlantic College, our team utilised a comprehensive range of professional tools and cleaning supplies for a clean canteen.

For optimal results in the kitchen area, we employed the use of our specialised cleaning products, supplied by our sister company APT Commercial Chemicals. All commercial cleaning products are eco-friendly, food safe & made in the UK.

  • UltraClean MB: An all-in-one cleaner specifically formulated for commercial kitchen cleaning. This powerful solution effectively eliminated dirt, grease, and stains from various surfaces, ensuring a deep and thorough clean.

  • Dekon 50: A deodoriser that neutralises odours and leaves a refreshing scent throughout the kitchen area. We used Dekon to prioritise deodorization and create a fresh and pleasant environment.

  • Gladiator: An industrial oven cleaner that is extremely powerful and heavy-duty that easily removes hardened, baked-on grease, grime and carbon deposits. 

  • Handy Clear – A professional glass washing detergent that is antibacterial. Powerful surfactants cut through grease and grime quickly and easily.


By employing these high-quality cleaning supplies, including Ultra Clean MB, Dekon 5ltr, and Gladiator, our team achieved exceptional cleanliness in Atlantic College’s clean canteen kitchen. The surfaces were thoroughly sanitised, free from dirt and grime, and ready for use by the college’s staff and students. We achieved a professional and compliant clean canteen for Atlantic College.

What was the outcome?

Throughout the cleaning process, we encouraged client feedback and input to address any immediate concerns or make adjustments as needed. This ensured complete satisfaction and a strong working relationship based on trust and transparency.

Upon completion of the kitchen cleaning project, Atlantic College expressed high satisfaction with our team’s work. The canteen was successfully restored to a clean and hygienic state, meeting the required standards for safety and sanitation. This allowed the college to reopen the kitchen, providing a safe and sanitary space for their students and staff to prepare and enjoy meals.

Our team’s meticulous approach and attention to detail ensured that all surfaces in the canteen area were thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. By utilising professional tools, cleaning supplies, and specialised products, such as UltraClean MB and Dekon, we effectively eliminated dirt, grime, and odors.
