If you are a commercial kitchen owner or manager there are several advantages to keeping your kitchen exhaust system clean outside of passing regular fire code inspections. Maintaining a clean commercial kitchen shows your employees and your customers that you care about the food service you provide as well as their safety and health. We know you care about your facility, so here are four great reasons to partner with Bare Metal Standard to keep your kitchen exhaust system clean and up to code:
1. Fire Prevention
The first and foremost important benefit of doing routine cleaning for your kitchen exhaust system is fire prevention. By properly degreasing your system, you’re eliminating extremely flammable grease and other potentially flammable residues from within your system. This protects your equipment and the people that use it, ensuring the safety of your property and your community.
2. Energy Efficiency
A clean kitchen exhaust and ventilation system results in better airflow. More effective ventilation increases the efficiency and performance of your equipment. More efficient equipment means higher production rates for a lower cost. You’ll be saving money on energy bills and maintenance fees in the long run.
3. Environmental Safety
The way that grease enters your upper exhaust system is by being vaporized from stovetop to rooftop. This means there are a large amount of grease particulates in the air within any commercial kitchen and this creates an environmental safety hazard. By scheduling regular cleanings, you’ll be decreasing contaminated air in the working and dining environment of your facility. On top of that, Bare Metal Standard uses environmentally friendly techniques and cleaning products that won’t harm the local environment.
4. Health Protection
Improving the living and working atmosphere of your commercial kitchen results in higher morale of both staff and customers. When you protect your employees from airborne contaminants, you’ll see increased productivity and decreased absence due to sick leave.
Cleaning is routine maintenance for all equipment that you have in the kitchen, so why should the inner workings of your kitchen exhaust ductwork be any different? In fact, due to the increasing complexity of ventilation systems, it’s more crucial than ever to ensure a professional clean that covers all corners of your system. Bare Metal Standard is the industry leader when it comes to professionally servicing your system and providing the highest standard of clean available.
