Why do you need Commercial Kitchen Exhaust Hood and Ducting Cleaning?

The exhaust system of a commercial kitchen collects large amounts of grease and grime over periods of time. This time period depends on what and how often it is cooked. For example a fast food outlet will require a more regular cleaning schedule in place than that of a salad bar.

As grease and grime build up within the exhaust and ducting systems the efficiency of the whole unit will decrease , not only meaning a less effective exhaust system but one that increase the cost of energy bills. 1st Commercial technicians have come across exhaust hoods and ducting systems that have stopped working due to the large amount of grease and grime build up.

With kitchen exhaust hood and ducting cleaning you will minimize the risk of the fat and grease being ignited by cooking flames.  The National Fire Protection Association have reported that 1 in 5 commercial kitchen fires are ignited due to lack of cleaning.

The lack of cleaning of a kitchen exhaust and ducting system can also result in the system playing host to pests and unfriendly bacteria. This will most definitely have a negative effect on your hygiene standards. Not meeting the code’s requirements can result in the closure of your business.
