Benefits of a clean kitchen canopy.
1. Fire Compliance and Safety
Whether its the local council or your insurance company’s requirement you must maintain a regular cleaning schedule to minimize any fire risk. If you are not familiar with the Australian standard for fire safety AS 1651-2012 , get in touch with us so we can assist you.
2. Odor Removal
If your restaurant uses a fryer, you can sometimes smell grease coming from the kitchen or the exhaust system. This can be unappetizing to your patrons and guests. This could also have an impact on the quality of the food coming out. A routine canopy cleaning will help clear the whole kitchen exhaust system of grease and heavy smells.
3. Air Quality
Commercial canopies do more than just capture smoke and steam from cooking. They also help capture air pollutants. When using an electric appliance or a gas appliance, pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide are released. If your kitchen canopy isn’t cleaned regularly, it won’t capture these pollutants as efficiently and they could end up in the air or even in the food.
4. Energy Savings
A lot of kitchen appliances are found in the kitchen such as grills, ovens, and fryers. If your kitchen exhaust system is not working properly due to grease build-up or other materials, it can cause pressure or break down of ventilation fans and other machinery. Our team will ensure that every passageway is clear so that every part of the system is working efficiently. This will help you save money on your utility bills.
5. A Safe Kitchen
Grease build-up is a fire hazard. Our team will ensure that the exhaust system, as well as all parts, are thoroughly cleaned to provide your employees, patrons and yourself with a safe environment. Your restaurant is an investment, so it needs to be protected.
