Extraction System Cleaning
Neglected kitchen grease extraction systems accumulate fats, oily deposits and fibrous particles that quickly become the major cause of fire in catering establishments. This warm, greasy environment is also an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. Failure to ensure regular cleaning of your grease extraction systems can also invalidate your buildings insurance cover.
The Loss Prevention Council recommends that canopies and ductwork be cleaned at least annually. Some insurance companies now require cleaning to be carried out more regularly, particularly where kitchens may be in continuous use such as hospitals, hotels, restaurants and fast food outlets.
