Improved Fire Safety in Your Commercial Kitchen Extraction System

In the UK, approximately 80% of kitchen extract systems have never been cleaned. These systems then pose a considerably dangerous fire hazard.

Whenever cooking takes place in the kitchen, the grease laden air passes through the hoods and the ductwork system above the fryers, grills, and ovens. If left uncleaned, some of the grease hangs and sticks to the extract canopy and develops into a significant fire risk.

This grease buildup on the walls of the kitchen extract ventilation system is flammable enough that even a fire or a spark from a cooker or a pan can ignite a fire and wreak havoc in the area. The heat and the flames can easily spread throughout the building as a result.

This is the main reason regular kitchen extract cleaning is an essential for commercial kitchens.
