As the pictures depict Nothings too Awkward for this Sunshine Coast Commercial Duct Cleaning Job at Coolum Beach. Over the last ten years as a professional kitchen duct cleaner, I have acquired a large number of clients up on the Sunshine Coast and we now travel to their on a weekly basis.
In this instance the owner of this Sunshine Coast restaurant had run me, indicating that he has been getting his commercial kitchen canopy cleaned on a regular basis but was concerned that his ducting and commercial exhaust fan had never been touched. A quick drive by to Coolum confirmed this was the case . Although not a particularly dirty section of kitchen exhaust, it was clear that a level of neglect was starting to develop and over the next few years of neglect , the kitchen ducting would no longer be firesafe.
So with the aid of a long ladder a bit of support one of the staff removed the ducting cover, where he cleaned the immediate area of duct that would allow him to slip his body into the first area. Then merely in systematic way he just begins to clean along the ducting until he is able to reach directly above the kitchen canopy. Most of the time this area is clogged with a substantial about of residual grease which make the area a fire hazard. A splash back of flames in the kitchen often ignites this layer of grease. Rendering this area not fire safe.
Although this process appears very simple to me . Its the simple case of out of sight out of mind. Sadly this Sunshine Coast contractor that was doing the job at the Cafe but simply took a short cut as the expense of the owner. And talking about expense. I must say I am still charging $200 less but doing three times the work.
Many commercial kitchen canopies have layers of ducting high above eye level. To the untrained you would never know it was there. I regularly find many void areas that are just left uncleaned. Not because they cant be reach, more so the contractors just can be bothered.
We simply work our way up cleaning as we go. Or Start on the left side and work across. Generally most holes can be breached, fortunately many of my staff are of slight build so can get into many tight areas.
Many owners and in fact many contractors place Duct Cleaning low on their priority list. Sadly this leads to unnecessary costs down the track and down time in the kitchen

Many new restaurant customers tell me that they are currently happy with the present work that they are receiving until I take a look inside and show them the areas that they don’t see. Sadly many contractors only clean the areas that you can see and leave the rest. what they leave is great amount of residual grease that once accumulated amounts to a fire hazard.
