A cleaning apparatus for cleaning of food-processing conveyor belts, particularly of metal conveyor belts used to convey bakery goods through baking ovens, includes an equipment carrier including pumping and vacuum equipment; mounts for mounting frame members carrying cleaning heads including cleaning and rinsing solution applicators, a brush, a splash shield, and vacuum heads; and, interconnections for connecting carrier-supported equipment to cleaning heads. In operation, cleaning heads are mounted to the mounts and are connected to the carrier-supported equipment; and, the conveyor belt is sprayed and soaked with a cleaning solution and left for a time before having the solution together with debris and residual and carbonized matter rinsed off and vacuumed up. Brushes brush the conveyor during cleaning and rinsing.
