Reduce Kitchen Fire Risk With Regular Deep Cleaning
The cleanliness of a venue directly impacts fire safety and none more so than in high-risk spaces, such as food preparation areas and kitchens.
Cleaning these areas is paramount to running a healthy and safe restaurant or any other company that serves customers. Reducing risks that come with running an entertainment venue is essential. However, our first thought when considering those risks is often cross-contamination, food poisoning, and other similar hazards.
Still, while dangerous, few have such widespread destructive capabilities that those that come in the event of a fire. A single fire can destroy an entire building and cause extensive loss of life.
A kitchen is a flashpoint for such a catastrophe. For one, it is a confined space with high heat, cooking oil and grease that can ignite quickly. All of these are safety issues that can be prevented through regular maintenance. Therefore, keeping the space immaculate and fire safe with a regular Kitchen deep clean is imperative.
There are two often overlooked areas in the kitchen that, if left, pose the greatest fire hazards – the extractor hood and ventilation system outlets.
They both need regular upkeep as any grease and grime in these areas can dramatically increase fire hazard risks, putting the safety of customers and employees on the line. In addition, they both are vital by removing fumes, smells, and steam from cooking while ensuring the air is breathable and clean.
If an extractor vent gets clogged, for example, and they don’t function properly, it can cause issues with smoke or steam billowing in the space rather than being taken out, which also causes a build-up of heat and possible fire. Likewise, if vents get clogged with grease, which is highly flammable, it also creates a severe fire hazard.
To avoid either of these possibilities, your extractor and the ductwork will need regular professional cleaning, which needs to be completed regularly. On the other hand, a clean ventilation system can bring various benefits. These include better airflow through the entire building and higher equipment performance and output while reducing energy costs.
Deep kitchen cleaning is essential to maintain all of these systems, ensuring they function well and bring those additional business benefits while also being hygienic and safe. To ensure that the kitchen at your venue is safe for all, we suggest having a professional deep clean, including the extractor and ventilation system, every three months instead of the mandated 6-monthly clean to keep your venue to a high standard.
