Kitchen Exhaust System Cleaning

Kitchen Exhaust System Cleaning

Many kitchen fires have been happening due to dirty exhaust ducts causing serious damage not only in the kitchen but also in the main building resulting in injury or loss of life. The spread of fire can be minimized by the regular cleaning. Our hygiene services are carried out in accordance with Dubai Municipality Order No. 61/1991 and NFPA # 96 (National Fire Prevention Authority of USA) which clearly states that the “entire system shall be cleaned to bare metal”. Inspection and or cleaning should be carried out at least every six (6) months or earlier depending on the type and amount of cooking.

NFPA 96 states that all hood filters must be treated the same as the rest of the exhaust system. They should be de-greased and well maintained periodically.

Most restaurant owners do not understand that clean-looking filters are a by-product of proper filter maintenance and not the end goal. All parts of the exhaust system (Hood, Baffle Filters, Horizontal Duct, Vertical Duct, Electrostatic Precipitator and its Filters, Ecology Unit and its Filters and finally the Kitchen Exhaust Fan) must be properly cleaned and maintained prior to becoming heavily contaminated with grease thus causing a potential fire hazard.
Making sure that a kitchen exhaust system is cleaned regularly is the first step to preventing an unexpected grease fire. Many restaurant owners wonder how often they should be assessing their exhaust systems. The National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) has the following set of guidelines:

If your exhaust system is not properly maintained, then you are exposing your business to a potential fire hazard. In fact, most kitchen grease fires spread rapidly because the flames will flare up from a kitchen appliance into a grimy, neglected exhaust system full of built-up grease.
