The purpose of a kitchen duct extraction system is to remove greasy air from a commercial kitchen. This is an essential device to ensure that the indoor air quality within the kitchen is healthy for the employees that work there. During the cooking process, grease from fats and oils along with any possible fuels (charcoal and wood) are removed from the kitchen through the extract system. Along the way through the extraction system, the hot air begins to cool and attaches itself to the duct, forming a jelly like substance on the side of the duct. This jellied grease has now become the biggest safety and fire risk in your kitchen; hotel and building.
At Envida Technical Services, we pride ourselves at improving indoor air quality and in this instance, also decreasing the risk of restaurant kitchen fires. In kitchen duct cleaning, we fully conform to the processes detailed within two international governing standards; the National Fire Protection Associations Code 96 – Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations and HVCA – TR19 – Internal Cleanliness of Ventilation Systems. We make sure that through our grease removal processes your complete system is clean, safe and ready to use. We also provide cleaning for in-line grease separation devices and electrostatic precipitation (ecological) units.
Depending on the type of cuisine you serve, the cooking fuels you use and how busy your restaurant is, we always recommend that a cleaning schedule should be undertaken every 6 months at a minimum. Upon completion of our service, you will receive a validation sticker detailing the cleaning of the system, a cleaning report along with our comments and a validation certificate.
We understand that a commercial kitchen works all night and days, therefore we always make sure that our service is flexible and suits your schedule. Please get in touch for more information.
