Hazards of Dirty Kitchen Ventilation Systems
Even the most efficient extraction filters cannot remove all traces of grease and dirt from the air. Over time, a layer of grease and dirt is deposited on the surfaces of ventilation ducts, canopies and extractor fans. Not only does this cause an environmental health hazard by providing a breeding ground for bacteria and foul odours, it also reduces the efficiency of your extraction system and is a major fire risk.
It is therefore essential to carry our regular cleaning of your kitchen extraction and ventilation systems as determined by an appropriate risk assessment. Failure to do so could lead to a breach of the Environmental health regulations and could invalidate your fire insurance policy.
