Kitchen Exhaust System Cleaning
Cleaning the kitchen exhaust system is much more than removing surface layers of dust from the exhaust itself. If your kitchen exhaust system is not thoroughly cleaned and often, it can lead to build up which reduces the number of bacteria and unwanted particles that are actually filtered from the air during cooking. When odors and particles are not filtered through the exhaust system, your kitchen could contain a cloud of smoke or smells during cooking which could linger longer than anticipated. To avoid this, using an exhaust system while cooking is highly recommended.
Cleaning your kitchen exhaust system is an integral part of maintaining your kitchen's overall safety and health, along with the quality of food you provide. Cleaning is needed in any kitchen that uses a formal kitchen to prepare and serve food and houses an exhaust system that filters and removes grease from the kitchen while cooking. Cleaning your exhaust system should be left to the professionals to get the best results for detailed cleaning.
While there's no definite number of times your system may cleaning, the amount recommended meeting health code standards is usually dependent on how often your system is used and the amount of grease and particles it filters through each use. For a busy restaurant that serves several hundreds of clients a week, you're looking at kitchen exhaust system cleaning at least monthly to satisfy health and fire code standards.
The first step to cleaning an kitchen exhaust system is to scrape the obvious food and grease build up in the exhaust system. Once these heavy particles have been scraped away at the surface, it is then time power wash the inside of the exhaust system using a heavy duty water system that has the power to blast away any remaining dirt and dissolve any grease on the surface. When cleaning exhaust systems, we follow the instructions laid out in the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) handbook that guides cleaning pros, like ourselves, on the safest methods to clean kitchen exhaust systems and prevent fire hazards.
