Why do I need to get my kitchen canopy cleaned?
Cameron here from Grease Busters, many clients ring me up and ask, Hey, why do I need to get my kitchen canopy cleaned?
First off there are mandatory Laws to consider, which is of course compliance.
Law indicates that you are required to get your kitchen canopy cleaned on a 12 monthly basis.
But what is happening more and more these days is that a lot of insurers have realized the fire risks that are involved with not getting your kitchen canopy cleaned on a regular basis.
Why do I need to get my kitchen canopy cleaned
You know, of course, the insurers are making it mandatory for their clients to clean their canopy and ducting on a six-monthly basis. And should a fire occur in their premises and they are not compliant. Their insurance is voided.
Now let’s talk about common sense. This venue is pictured here in the video. A Commercial kitchen south of the border, get their kitchen canopy cleaned every six months because the accumulated grease is quite evident after that period of time. And it’s the grease or the residual grease, which is your fire hazard. And believe it or not. I’ve seen a lot of kitchens burned down over the last 15 years.
And what happens is the gutters, all the filters are chockablock full of grease and you get a Splashback of fire from the oil here, and it sets it alight. And it was only last year. I saw a Splashback here, the filter was engorged with grease and the filter caught alight. And it blew up the riser and blew the top of the fan off the roof and actually fractured the frame of the building.
So if you do have a problem with not knowing why you need to get your kitchen canopy cleaned, give me a call. And we’ll come out and inspect your canopy and ducting and we’ll just work it out.
