Kitchen Duct Cleaning
(Often referred to as hood cleaning) is very necessary to remove the grease that has accumulated inside the ducts, hoods, fans and vents of exhaust systems of commercial kitchens. Left uncleansed, kitchen exhaust systems eventually accumulate enough grease to become extreme fire hazards. Exhaust systems must be inspected regularly, at intervals consistent with usage, to determine whether cleaning is needed before a dangerous amount of grease has accumulated.

GREASE DUCT CLEANING
All kitchen grease extraction systems require a regular deepclean of the whole system to ensure the business owner iscompliant with health and safety, fire risk and insuranceregulations. Deep cleaning of the extraction system should alsobe maintained to ensure a safe and effective ventilation of smokeand unpleasant odors from the kitchen area.Often after only a couple of months the accumulation of greaseparticles within the ductwork can lead to a reduction in efficiencyof the whole extract system.This can lead to an unpleasant, hot and humid working environment due to the lack of ventilation and air circulation.Eventually the buildup of grease within the ducting will increaseto the point that the extractor fan is struggling to turn understress from the grease build up, causing the whole extractionsystem to shut down. Many kitchens have ‘gas-interlock’systems installed monitoring air and gas flow levels within theducting and canopy. If your extraction system does shut downthen your gas supply will be isolated until your canopy, extractorfan and ductwork is cleaned; allowing a correct level of air topass through the extraction system again.

Local Exhaust Ventilation or LEV for short is the term given for the equipment used to extract and filter hazardous substances from the local environment within the workplace. The Health and Safety Executive has set out regulations for the control of hazardous substances within the workplace, these measures are commonly known as ‘COSHH’ regulations. These regulations require that, where certain chemicals and other substances are used in industrial and commercial processes, they should either be contained or safely dispersed within a Local Exhaust Ventilation system. A requirement of these regulations is that LEV systems should be regularly tested, maintained, and cleaned to ensure that they are operating efficiently. The H.S.E. states that a LEV system that is poorly installed, ineffective or loses its effectiveness through lack of maintenance – leads directly to industrial disease.
FIXERON can help to test, clean, and maintain your LEV system. We provide Certification, inspection reports, pre and post clean images of the system and an evidential logbook, to support your compliance of the law.

How Often Does My Kitchen Need A Hood Cleaning?
NFPA 96 dictates that most commercial hoods should be cleaned on a quarterly basis. There are exceptions for special cases, however. For example, wood burning stoves need to be cleaned every month, while some facilities whose kitchens do not build up as much grease, churches, schools, etc., can be cleaned less frequently, even as seldom as once a year.
What Does A Hood Cleaning Include?
The standard kitchen exhaust hood cleaning service is “cook top to roof top.” The basic process goes something like this: starting in the kitchen, the cooking equipment and other surfaces not being cleaned are covered with plastic. The filters are put in a cleaning solution to soak and the plenum (the area behind the filter bank) is scraped. Then FIXERON team will start to work from the top down, first the exhaust fan roof or cover will be removed, then the duct shaft manually scraped. Chemical will be applied to the exhaust fan blades and duct shaft, everything will be rinsed, then the exhaust fan reinstalled. FIXERON team will then return to the kitchen, apply chemical to the plenum, canopy, and backsplash, rinse everything, reinstall the filters, and polish the canopy and backsplash. Once finished, they will remove the plastic, tidy any mess created on the floor, check to make sure the exhaust fan turns on, and place a new inspection sticker on the kitchen hood’s canopy.
Do You All Need To Get On The Roof And Do You Clean It?
Yes, FIXERON team need access to your roof to properly clean the exhaust fan and duct work. The only instance where roof access is not necessary is if your kitchen exhaust fan is located on the side of the building or elsewhere. But most kitchens are designed with the duct work leading up through the roof. Though we will clean all aspects of the duct work that are on the roof, cleaning the roof itself is not part of the standard hood cleaning service. It can be quoted and completed as a separate service upon request.
How Long Will The Service Take?
A standard hood cleaning takes 3-4 hours. However, there are a variety of factors that determine how long it takes. The length of time between cleanings, the size of the kitchen, and the number of hoods/fans all factor into how long it will take for the job to be completed.
