Grease and other debris can build up in the ducts and vents of a kitchen exhaust system, creating a fire hazard. A clean exhaust system is less likely to catch fire, ensuring the kitchens and their occupants' safety.
A dirty exhaust system can circulate contaminated air, posing a risk to the health of kitchen staff and customers.
A dirty exhaust system can become clogged, reducing its effectiveness and causing it to work harder to ventilate the kitchen. This can lead to increased energy costs and a shorter lifespan of the system.
In some areas, it is required by law to regularly clean commercial kitchen exhaust systems and to comply with Food Act 1983. Failing to do so can result in legal liabilities and fines.
By conducting regular kitchen exhaust system cleaning, you can REDUCE these risks and ENSURE THAT THE KITCHEN IS SAFE, EFFICIENT, AND COMPLIANT WITH RELEVANT REGULATIONS.
Grease accumulates in a kitchen exhaust system as a result of the cooking process. When food is cooked, it releases grease, steam, smoke, and other by-products into the air. These by-products can accumulate in the internal ducting surfaces and the rest of the exhaust system, where they can build up over time. The grease and other substances can accumulate in the filters, hood, and ducting to the exhaust fan.
