What happens if you don’t have your kitchen exhausts cleaned?

In order to reduce the risk of a fire hazard, it is the owner’s responsibility to keep their kitchen exhaust system clean of any grease, dirt or particulate build-up. If left unmaintained, your kitchen exhaust system will accumulate a build-up of dirt, grease, oil and fat residue, that if touched with a spark or flame from your grill, fryer or range can ignite an extremely deadly grease fire.

Australian Standards, OH&S regulations and FIRESAFE all demand that your kitchen canopy and ductwork get regular cleaning and maintenance in order to prevent such a hazard. Your insurance will most often demand that this be done by a professional cleaning service that specialises in commercial kitchen canopy and exhaust cleaning.

Why You Should Hire Grease Busters

Your exhaust fan is the heart and soul of the kitchen, and it most likely is not getting the cleaning and maintenance that it needs in order to run at peak efficiency. Grease and grime residue can clog up the exhausts fan blades, slowing the air flow in the kitchen and make it unbearable for your staff.

If your kitchen has hot, smoke-filled air and trapped odours that are apparent, then these are just some of the signs telling you that your exhaust fan needs cleaning. If you are not servicing your system regularly they can start seizing or even stop working altogether.
