The hood system is an integral portion of your kitchen and its cleanliness can make a huge difference in your cooking and health, and also that of your customers.
Here are the top five reasons to keep your kitchen hood clean
It’s A Fire Hazard
With all that gunky build-up that collects in a kitchen hood, you run the risk of just some of it combusting. Suddenly, you’ve got yourself a fire hazard that you didn’t even realize existed. Even if you can’t view it doesn’t mean it exists. Don’t just stress over the parts you can see, ensure a commercial kitchen hood cleaning company like A Cambie enters into the unit to ensure that you’re not violating codes and putting your staff or customers in danger.
It’s The Law
According to what the local restaurant or industrial kitchen laws are in your area, maintaining a clean, working kitchen hood is one aspect of passing muster and staying above board. If an inspector shows up and finds a spotless kitchen but spotty kitchen hood, you could still have trouble. Depending upon what you cook and what amount, you might want to have your kitchen hood cleaned as often as monthly.
Clear Any Blockage
It’s not just smoke that’s wafting up into the kitchen hood. It’s also grease and dirt that rises there and gets lodged in the exhaust. That can turn your kitchen hood into a bacteria breeding ground. Mold, mildew and other unwanted byproducts are bound to occur. It’s so easy to fix this problem before it starts, just call a commercial kitchen hood cleaning company like A Cambie.
So don’t wait until it’s far too late and your kitchen is a fire hazard, overrun with bacteria or in breach of the provincial law. Get A Cambie to go in with their full-licensed kitchen hood cleaners and give you a fair estimate about what it will require to get your kitchen hood spotless.
It’s not just dirt and bacteria you must think about. If enough grime accumulates, you could wind up attracting bugs and critters to live on the sludge. Then, it’s only a matter of time before they start crawling out right over your stoves and ovens! Don’t let it reach that point and don’t let your customers or an inspector discover before you do.
Prevent Closing Down & Losing Business
The more you service your kitchen hood and the more regularly you do this, the less chance you’ll need a commercial kitchen hood cleaning company to go in and do extensive work that requires your kitchen to close. You don’t intend to lose business and money because you skimped on the kitchen hood cleaning.
