WHY IS DEEPCLEANING IMPORTANT?


In both commercial and domestic environments, kitchens are incredibly important however for commercial kitchens this space is key for productivity and activity as it is used every day and is a vital part for certain businesses.

 With the kitchen being so important in commercial settings, maintenance is key. This is to ensure hygiene, aesthetics and health and safety standards are maintained,

Here are some important reasons why extraction cleaning is vital.

 Air quality issues:

The way that an extractor works in a kitchen is to suck the contaminated air out and ensure the environment stays free from pollutants such as smoke. When the duct is not cleaned regularly, the air quality in the kitchen is compromised because air pollutants are not escaping as they should be. Using a variety of heat sources to cook food, including gas, wood and electricity, each of these sources can create indoor air pollution.

 Vermin Infestations:

his issue often occurs in the plumbing grease trap of a commercial kitchen, but it can happen anywhere that grease is openly accessible to animals and insects, which is why a greasy extractor fan is a risk for this kind of problem. Vermin’s like to follow scent of food and grease causing risk of disease.

 Allergens and Smells:

A blocked duct can cause the smell of food and smoke and make the kitchen smell very fatty.

It can cause allergens to become trapped inside, instead, allowing them to circulate and irritate the airways of employees and even customers.

 What do I do if I have access issues for my ducts?

Many of our clients have areas of their ducts that have never been cleaned as they cannot gain access to that part of the duct. However, at ACSUK we are able to fit hatches to gain access to the ducts so we can provide a deep clean safely and effectively without missing any part of the duct.

 Sometimes it can be revealed that some parts of the duct have never been cleaned in some cases as there has been no hatch access since the duct was fitted. This can be a big fire hazard as there can be years’ worth of grease that has been built up.


IS YOUR KITCHEN REALLY CLEAN ENOUGH EVEN AT HIGH LEVEL?


To make sure your kitchen extraction system is really up to the TR19 standards it would be a recommendation of getting an expertise in for what you are looking at having cleaned, doing this can mean you are able to maintain a high level of cleanliness because it is VITAL for kitchens and your workspace to be up to date keeping your staff and customers overall happy.

CANOPY AREAS THAT NEED TO BE CLEANED

Clearing your drains in the kitchen is something that wont take long and it will be worth the time it takes to clear out as it could save you more money than you think in the future, if the drain ever gets blocked up it wont be able to hold all the water and drip and grease coming from your ovens and maybe canopies resulting in it overflowing onto the floor causing a slippery surface and an unsafe workspace

Keeping your canopy looking new and shiny will give your kitchen a newer look as it is a main part of the kitchen and stands out if it looks dirty and greasy you will definitely notice your canopy should be cleaned every 4-6 months. The uPVC when the canopy is first installed usually has a gloss like finish, the more it gets used the duller it goes causing the gloss to wear away making it looked stained, this is called photo-oxidation where dust particles and dirt gets attached to the uPVC spoiling its appearance. Washing the canopy will keep it looking fresh and clean.

 TR19 STANDARDS

The TR19 standards was defined by BESA, as a way to standardise the duct and kitchen extract cleaning systems. It has become the standard to which most insurers and building engineering service sectors as the standard to match when performing ductwork cleaning operations.

Duct cleaning is important for any closed environment however in places like hotels and restaurants it is very important as people are spending a lot of time there.
