Reduce Your Risk of Fire

Learn how regular cleaning of kitchen extractors is crucial for fire safety and compliance in commercial kitchens.

2 Mins

Commercial kitchens hinge on the efficiency of their extractor systems to manage grease and reduce fire risks. Yet, without diligent cleaning, these systems risk safety and compliance. This article highlights the significance of regular maintenance for kitchen extractors, emphasizing the need for professional services to maintain operational safety and insurance standards.

Despite the efficiency of canopy filters in capturing grease, accumulations are bound to occur over time. Without regular cleaning of kitchen extractors and canopies, grease becomes hard to remove once it solidifies. Neglecting the cleanliness of kitchen canopies and filters compromises not just the extraction system's efficiency but also diminishes the lifespan of the canopy fan. The vaporised grease from commercial cooking, unable to be fully captured by filters, fills the ductwork, which often extends throughout a building, creating a significant fire risk.

The Importance of Regular Maintenance

Failing to maintain and clean kitchen canopies, filters, ducting, and fans might also invalidate your insurance coverage. Insurance terms now require regular cleaning of these components. The cleaning frequency is crucial for maintaining safety standards:

  • Light Use (2-6 hours a day): Clean annually
  • Moderate Use (6-12 hours a day): Clean every 6 months
  • Heavy Use (12-16 hours a day): Clean quarterly
