Regular cleaning of the Extraction System removes fats, oily deposits and fibrous particles that can accumulate within the system. If a regular cleaning regime is not in place this will reduce air flow efficiency, create a fire hazard and allow the formation of a breeding ground for bacteria.
In addition to this, failure to ensure regular cleaning of kitchen grease extract systems can invalidate buildings insurance cover.
Industry regulations stipulate that kitchen extract systems should be kept clean at all times to reduce fire and other risks. The BESA Association document TR19 provides simple yet specific guidance on methods of measuring cleanliness. Total Extract Management provides Extraction Cleaning that meets and surpasses these requirements.
Whilst it is your responsibility to ensure that kitchen grease extract systems (canopies, filters, ductwork, risers and fans) within your commercial kitchens are regularly and professionally cleaned, Total Extract Management can help establish a systematic cleaning programme with you to remove the worry of checking and arranging the cleaning of your system.
We will carry out a full survey of your Extraction System and provide a bespoke programme of works based upon usage, frequencies and the type of cooking you provide, to ensure you do not have to worry about this element of your business.
