kitchen Extraction & Grease Extraction Cleaning

Grease extract and canopy cleaning

Do You Need Kitchen Extract Cleaning?

Cleaning of the kitchen extract ductwork is a crucial procedure because kitchen extract systems pose a higher risk in terms of fire, odours, and hygiene when compared to general air ventilation systems.

This elevated risk is attributed to the accumulation of grease, cooking oil, and other residues over time, which can potentially serve as an ignition source.

Maintaining cleanliness and ensuring fire safety are integral aspects of effective kitchen management. One significant risk factor lies in your kitchen extract system, which becomes a receptacle for grease, cooking oil, and other residues.

Failure to keep the kitchen extract ductwork clean can result in a significant fire hazard.

To emphasize the importance of adhering to best practices, a thorough cleaning of your kitchen ventilation system is essential.

This ensures compliance with safety standards and addresses the concerns that typically drive responsible individuals to take action. Neglecting ventilation maintenance can exacerbate fire risks as grease accumulates.

Grease extract ductwork often stretches through the entire length of a building to reach a roof-level exhaust, so uncleaned ductwork can put not only the kitchen occupants at risk from fire, but also the whole premises.
