Cleaning out the air extract system for your oven and cooker – is one of the most important maintenance tasks in a commercial kitchen. But because the areas involved are not easily visible or accessible to kitchen staff, Extract Cleaning is easily overlooked and usually requires external assistance to carry out properly.
The Importance of Kitchen Extract Cleaning
It’s an established fact that there is what is sometimes called a “holy trinity” in order for there to be a fire. You need fuel – something for the fire to burn. You need air – a fire needs oxygen or it will go out. And you need a spark – a source of ignition to set it off.
In your kitchen extract system and ducting you have all three. You have a build-up of oil and grease from the canopy all the way through the duct. Then you have the air from the fan. Finally, you have flames from the cookers down in the kitchen.
