We are seeing an increasing amount of insurance companies insisting that commercial kitchen operators periodically clean and maintain their ventilation systems. The reason for this is because the canopy and the ducting can become a fire hazard if not maintained. The canopy itself is designed to capture not only the heat from cooking but also the air borne fats. The baffle filters within the canopy trap the fats which are then collated within the removable ‘grease-trays’. Naturally therefor the baffle filters themselves harbour a significant amount of grease as does the fabric of the canopy itself.
We therefore provide a service whereby we undertake the cleaning of the canopy. It typically takes a full day and involves two of our operatives. We use all the necessary safe chemicals recommended to break down grease and cleanse st/steel. Importantly we like to provide before and after photographs as evidence of the works completed.
