Maintaining your restaurant’s kitchen exhaust hood system is essential to creating a safe commercial kitchen space. A clean kitchen exhaust system will run efficiently and help keep both your employees and customers happy. Your restaurant kitchen exhaust system’s job is to keep any greasy air coming off of your grille as a result of cooking from getting any further in your kitchen or dining area. A kitchen hood is installed above your cooking appliances so that it can take in the contaminated air being produced by your cooking operations and deposit it outdoors where it won’t impact the cleanliness of your restaurant.
Different types of restaurants require different kitchen exhaust system cleaning frequencies. There are a number of factors to take into consideration when determining how often your restaurant kitchen exhaust system cleaning should take place. The first thing to consider is how often your restaurant kitchen is being used. As your kitchen’s workload gets bigger the kitchen exhaust system works harder and the amount of grease build up increases. There is a direct connection between how often your restaurant is open and how much grease and debris is present in the hood system.
What you’re cooking in your restaurant kitchen also plays a role in how often a kitchen exhaust system cleaning is needed. Cooking with solid fuel such as charcoal will mean you need to have a hood cleaning more frequently. Most restaurants will be in compliance with fire safety codes if they get a exhaust system cleaning quarterly but it is important to make sure you’re meeting local fire safety requirements.
