Kitchen Exhaust

The exhaust system in commercial kitchens consists of a canopy fitted with grease filters directly over the cooking appliances. This is connected by ductwork to an exhaust fan which normally discharges outside the building. The ductwork can vary depending on the size of the building and at which point it can be exhausted outside. If these systems are not cleaned from point of entry to exit they will constitute a severe fire hazard and raise health issues over a period of time. This can vary according to usage. Simple cleaning of filters and canopies in not sufficient to address these issues and therefore duct cleaning is a necessary part of the overall maintenance
