No matter how efficient your canopy filters are at trapping grease particles it is inevitable that deposits will start building up within the kitchen extraction and canopy. If you do not undertake cleaning on a regular basis the grease over time will become baked on and extremely difficult to remove. Reducing the effectiveness of the extraction system, shortening the fan’s life and creating a serious fire hazard’s in the kitchen. In addition bacteria amd fungi develops in the fatty moist deposits, this becomes hazardous to health and a food source for cockroaches. Regular kitchen extraction cleaning is imperative to ensure the safety of the building and occupants are not at risk from fire.The Regulatory Reform Order 2005 stipulates that by law a fire risk assessment should be undertaken. This requires the building’s owner or workplace manger to delegate a responsible person to identifying all possible sources of fire and eliminate or at least minimise the risk to the buildings occupants. Regular kitchen extract cleaning will remove the most common cause of fire within the kitchen.
