Extract hood cleaning isn’t just for hygiene – it is required as part of your compliance schedule.
If you run a commercial building with mechanical ventilation systems like extraction hoods and systems, then cleaning them isn’t just a matter of keeping the place tidy. Not having your extraction system regularly cleaned and inspected could mean your building fails its warrant of fitness for not meeting your compliance schedule.
Failure to keep your system properly clean could also cause problems with your insurer. Many companies will require evidence of regular cleaning and may not pay out if a fire starts due to poor maintenance. This is particularly important in high-use cooking areas where dirt, particularly flammable dirt like grease, can build up quickly and there may be naked flames.
Get your extract hood and cleaning system cleaned professionally for best results
Cleaning your extraction system is about more than just giving it the once over on the outside with a damp cloth. The system needs cleaning inside and out including getting rid of the dirt you can’t see. Doing it yourself just isn’t going to be up to the right standard.

A professional cleaning company will be able to carry out a more thorough clean, making sure all elements of the extraction system are sanitised. This includes filters and fans including the roof-top or outdoor fan component.
