When it comes to commercial kitchen cleaning, canopy cleaning can be a daunting prospect. No matter how vigorous your regular cleaning regime is, periodic and thorough canopy cleaning by a professional cleaning company should be considered a part of your wider commercial kitchen deep cleaning schedule.
Why It Is Necessary
Designed specifically to remove airborne grease, heat, smoke, smells and steam from the air surrounding a cooker, a canopy and the ductwork behind it can quickly accumulate grease and dust. If the build-up becomes excessive it can become a breeding ground for mould and bacteria which can pose a significant health risk to your employees and your diners. And it can also catch fire if exposed to flames from the cooker below – the ductwork can then carry the fire through to other parts of the building.
