kitchen exhaust cleaning

A typical day in the life of a Clean Air Filtration employee involves getting your hands dirty – often very dirty.

Recently, after arriving at a Melbourne restaurant and inspecting the kitchen exhaust, ducts, and kitchen canopy, we could see it was one of those occasions:

It obviously hadn’t been cleaned for a number of years. There was nothing left to do except roll up our sleeves and get stuck in.

This situation is quite typical says Clean Air Filtration CEO Darren Broderick:

I’m not concerned for our guys. This experience was just another ‘day in the life’ for our employees who do a fabulous job cleaning some very dirty kitchen exhaust systems. Our guys are certainly willing and able to clean anything that they come across.

However, it’s the risk of fire that really worries me. By not cleaning the grease laden kitchen exhausts and ducts, the restaurant is opening themselves up to huge fire risks.

Several Melbourne restaurants have been consumed by kitchen fires in the last few years. These fires originated in kitchen flues and canopies.

To prevent fire hazards like these maintenance is required on a regular basis. It is important to be aware if the exhaust system has not been professionally cleaned in a twelve month period, as per A.S 1851 rev 2005, your building is non-compliant resulting in restaurant shutdowns or even no insurance for the fire.

Your first line of defence should be to have your kitchen exhaust cleaned regularly. Clean Air Filtration’s extensive range of duct cleaning services include:

Air Duct Cleaning & Sick Building Syndrome

 

The United States Environment Protection Authority (EPA) released a publication on "Sick Building Syndrome" in 1991.

A primary listed cause of sick building syndrome was inadequate ventilation, which can occur if heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems do not effectively distribute air to people in the building.

This can occur if HVAC systems are not regularly cleaned.

Mould or mildew from damp conditions also create air quality problems which can also result in Sick Building Syndrome.

Put simply, Sick Building Syndrome can be caused by poor indoor air quality, which in turn is caused by irregular air duct cleaning of air conditioners and heating (HVAC) systems.

In fact, as a solution to sick building building syndrome, the United States EPA recommends the routine maintenance of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems.

The symptoms of Sick building Syndrome include cold like symptoms, headaches, sinus infections, sore throats and fatigue.

    These days, people are much more conscious of the air they breathe.

    Building owners and employers not only have to comply with tough occupational health and safety laws, but also want to create safe environments for those who live and work in their buildings. It’s really just a matter of prudent risk management and good business practice.

    The simple fact is that built-up dirt and dust is bad for people (especially those who suffer from asthma or similar conditions), as well as for sensitive equipment such as computers.

    It also poses a significant fire risk and can cost you money if it means your system is not running efficiently. BOOK YOUR SITE VISIT Preview modal-
