Extraction filters may be efficient in removing grease and dirt traces, however, they cannot do their job 100% if they are not cleaned or maintained over time, Ventilation ducts, canopies, and extractor fans may get more contaminated with residues, what are the results?
Not only does this cause an environmental health hazard by providing a breeding ground for bacteria and foul odors, it also reduces the efficiency of your extraction system and is a major fire risk.
Fire risks have found to increasingly flame buildings within minutes and it is something we do not want.
It is therefore essential to carry out regular cleaning of your kitchen extraction and ventilation systems as determined by an appropriate risk assessment and precautionary measures.
Failure to do so could lead to a breach of the Environmental Health Regulations and could invalidate your fire insurance policy. We provide a ventilation degreasing service that covers all aspects of extraction systems cleaning.
Our experienced cleaning teams are fully trained to clean all the elements of your ventilation system to the highest standards required to ensure a safe and healthy environment for your staff and clients.
Fire risk not only can cause the fire but can dissolve certain gases into the air that we breathe. Keeping kitchen ducts clean and tidy is the major rule for commercial kitchens for staying safe and keeping other people in and around the kitchen safe.
Any standard exhaust system is much easier to clean but the food services industry and its ventilation are way more complex and require specific standards for cleaning and maintenance, the air being exhausted with smoke-laden vapors must be removed on time and out of the building in compliance and lawful codes.
Equally the air removed must be replaced by clean air. Get your exhaust cleaned today to avoid:
- The higher the flame that can cause a fire. The flames can ignite with unclean filters.
- The flames can travel through the duct and transport to other areas, the grease can act as fuel and can cause a fire more rapidly than you can imagine
- If sufficient grease residue exists within the ducts, it can act as a source of fuel, carrying the fire further into the exhaust system causing significant damage, and placing the structure and its occupants at risk.
