No matter how efficient your canopy filters are at trapping grease particles it's inevitable that over time deposits will start building up. If kitchen extractor and canopy cleaning is not undertaken on a regular basis, over time the grease will become baked on and is then extremely difficult to remove. Kitchen canopies and filters which are not cleaned regularly will not only reduce the effectiveness of the extraction system but will also shorten the canopy fan's life. Filters alone cannot eliminate the vaporised grease that commercial cooking causes, and it's not unusual for grease extract ductwork to run throughout an entire building which could pose a serious fire hazard.
By not maintaining and cleaning your kitchen canopies, filters, ducting and fans it could mean that your insurance policy will not cover you. Insurance companies now state as part of a building's insurance terms canopies, filers and ducts need to be cleaned regularly. The frequency of when your commercial kitchen cleaning takes place is also particularly important.
B&ES Recommended Extraction Cleaning Service Intervals:
Light Use 2-6 Hours A Day 12 Monthly
Moderate Use 6-12 Hours A Day 6 Monthly
Heavy Use 12-16 Hours A Day 3 Monthly
