Canopy Cleaning is extremely important!
Your kitchen canopy plays a very important role in your kitchen – as its job is to filter out grease, fumes, moisture and much more. It protects your employees and customers from carbon monoxide, dangerous fumes, smoke, bad odours and so much more.
However, if your kitchen canopy hasn’t been cleaned in a while – it could be a hazard rather than a help. It doesn’t take long for the average range hood in a commercial kitchen to become coated with grease. When it is left unmaintained for a while, your kitchen canopy can accumulate enough grease to become an extreme fire hazard.
It goes without saying that a fire in your kitchen would be extremely devastating to your business. Your equipment would be destroyed, you would have to shut down the restaurant and not only would you have to face the cost of repairing the damage – but you would be losing out on revenue for every day that you are closed. Also, a fire poses a significant risk to the lives of your employees and customers.
This is why it is very important for your kitchen canopy to be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis. A dangerous amount of grease can build up faster than you might think. A regular canopy cleaning service is required by the Australian Standards.
