Commercial Kitchen Extraction Cleaning
The kitchen is definitely one place where you cannot afford to let your standards slip – not only for Hygiene, Health & Safety and Legal reasons but more importantly for the safety of your own staff.
The accumulation of grease deposits in extraction systems present a significant fire hazard . Apart from the fire risk, the accumulation of grease in the extraction system reduces ventilation efficiency resulting in overheating , excessive humidity and a continuing source of unwanted odours.
Why Is Commercial Kitchen Extraction Cleaning Essential?
The filters and ductwork that comprise a kitchen extraction system are predominantly hidden from view, with dust, grease, and other contaminants seeming to disappear as if by magic. Consequently, it’s easy to overlook the cleaning of extraction systems, as any accumulations are likely to be out of sight and, therefore, out of mind.
However, cleaning must not be overlooked as:
- Without professional extraction cleaning, the system will perform inadequately as the trapped dust and grease will reduce its capacity.
- Your insurance will require you to maintain a clean extraction system, proof of which should be supplied if requested.
- Your business has a duty to meet TR19 standards for ductwork cleaning, so professional maintenance will help you to fulfill your legal obligations in the workplace.
