Kitchen Canopy Cleaning Melbourne

Frequently cleaned canopies are the best defense against major fires and safety risk issues. Grease and grime build up during each use of the canopy & filters where they are ultimately trapped in. This reduces fire safety, where the kitchen canopy extract system becomes hazardousness due to the potential of the accumulated grease. Accumulated grease within an extract system forms a hidden combustion load. Under certain circumstances flame of very high temperature within the duct can ignite the grease causing fire to spread rapidly through the duct. Flame and heat within the duct can ignite surrounding materials at various points along the ductwork path and transfer fire in ways that are difficult to predict and control by designers, installers and ultimately fire fighters. To best protect your kitchen and staff, schedule a canopy clean today.
