When it comes to your commercial kitchen’s exhaust system, it is easy to forget about it getting dirty. That you do not see something does not mean that it doesn’t exist. In fact, the lack of care can even become dangerous. This is why regular cleaning and maintenance of this part of your commercial kitchen is a legal requirement.

Fortunately, our experienced team is skilled at cleaning exhaust systems, where accessible, from top to bottom, including the nooks and crannies you may not even be aware of.

Our professional staff is well versed in the Australian standards surrounding the cleaning of commercial kitchens and will carry out all cleaning and maintenance thoroughly. We honour our commitment to you and value your time performing our duties within the advertised time.

The Importance of Cleaning Exhaust Fans

When having your duct and exhaust systems professionally cleaned, it is important to ensure that your chosen cleaning company pays particular attention to your exhaust fans.

Why is it important to do the cleaning? Unmaintained exhaust fans can quickly become clogged with grease and fat build-ups. Left for long enough, these build-ups can cause fans to overheat. Should fans become damaged, expensive repairs, or even a complete replacement may be required.

Below you can find a suggested schedule of maintenance to avoid all the above issues:
