Regular Commercial Kitchen Extractor Duct Cleaning

Why is Commercial Kitchen Duct Cleaning Important?

Duct cleaning and maintenance in commercial kitchens in London is extremely important. However, a busy kitchen has to work efficiently for the benefit of both kitchen staff, your business and your customers.  There are however, those who take great risks where they choose to delay, ignore or are genuinely unaware of the need to keep the ducting clean. Commercial ducts should be free of unwanted waste, health hazards and bacteria build up.

So what should happen? Any unwanted impurities in the air are pulled in through the extraction system and out through ducting. If you don’t keep the ducting clean it can often lead to an expensive repair or even the need to replace your old ducting for new.

If you notice grease within the duct, this can build up quite quickly over a relatively short period of time and excessive build up can be a major fire risk. It’s important to note that it’s your responsibility to keep everything clean, so you meet local health and safety guidelines. If you would like Fan Services to clean the ducting in your commercial kitchen let us know.

Duct Cleaning – Stay Compliant with Local Regulations

You may be wondering why duct cleaning is so important? Compliance with local regulations is essential and a Council official can pop up at your door any time.

Stay one step ahead and look after your kitchen; it involves getting your hands dirty but it will all be worth the time and energy you put in. Besides mopping floors, wiping surfaces and keeping filters clean, grease build up should be removed from ducts. A fire hazard, any build up of grease should be scraped away. Cleaning can be done with a safe blend of chemically treated hot water. Grease should always be removed safely.

As a result, chemical treatments should always be a last resort. For instance:

  • biocides can be applied to remove microbiological contamination
  • a chemical treatment can be used to cover the inside surface of the ducting
