Importance of Kitchen Extraction Cleaning

Inefficient commercial kitchen extractor systems can lead to complaints about air quality within your business. During cooking operations, the heated oils and fats vaporise and are extracted through the cooker hoods and other HVAC ducts. Here, they condense and solidify unseen, where they pose both a health and fire risk. Filters and air handling units are a breeding ground for many micro-organisms, mold, fungi, and bacteria. These unwanted build-ups in your kitchen ducts reduce efficiency and can lead to premature failure of over-stressed kitchen duct cleaning equipment.

Therefore, having your kitchen extraction systems thoroughly cleaned regularly as part of your planned kitchen maintenance routine is essential. This is not a job for your own staff – apart from requiring specialist knowledge and equipment, it is hazardous and dirty too.

Kitchen Extraction Cleaning Regulations

Fire and Health & Safety regulations place a very strict ‘duty of care’ on the manager of the premises. Part of these regulations state that ‘grease extract systems must be assessed for fire hazards, and action MUST be taken to eliminate or minimise potential risks’. Failure to comply could lead to the closure of your commercial kitchen. The rules for extraction cleaning are the same in Wales and England.

Recommended Extraction Cleaning Service Intervals for Kitchen Ducting

The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 stipulates that by law, a fire risk assessment should be undertaken. This requires the building’s owner or workplace manager to delegate a responsible person to identifying all possible sources of fire and eliminate or at least minimize the risk to the buildings occupants. Regular kitchen extraction and canopy cleaning will remove the most common cause of fire within the kitchen.

APT supports our clients and helps protect them from risk, loss, or failure. We don’t just contact you to remind you about your kitchen canopy cleaning program. We help you meet the up-to-date legislation by carrying out a fully comprehensive survey condition report (including before and after photographs). We undertake kitchen extract cleaning and canopy cleaning at times convenient to you and do not charge extra for weekend or night work. Where access to the extraction system is not in place, where it is safe to do so, we install access panels ensuring thorough cleaning.

The recommended extraction cleaning service intervals for kitchen ducting are as follows:

Light Use: 2-6 Hours A Day, Annual

Moderate Use: 6-12 Hours A Day, Bi-Annual

Heavy Use: 12-16 Hours A Day, Quarterly
