DEEP CLEANING OF KITCHEN EXTRACT SYSTEMS
A kitchen extract system is in essence a localised capture system for removal of greases, oils, steam and cooking food vapours and smells which become airborne during the cooking process.
The object of the extract is to capture these contaminants and draw them away from the source of generation, and exhaust them to outside the building, using extract and grease extract ductwork.
The maintenance issues which revolve around kitchen extract systems are centred on keeping them free of significant grease and oil build-ups because of the flammable nature of such contaminants, which prove fuel in the event of a fire inside the ductwork.
Given that such ductwork often runs hidden inside buildings before it reaches the outside discharge, and that cooking by it’s very nature often involves naked flames, there is a clear fire safety issue to be addressed.
Hygeia have many years proven track record in tackling kitchen extract systems, cleaning and removing grease and providing feedback to the client with photographic reports showing conditions encountered within the extract ductwork before and after cleaning.
