Why commercial kitchen ventilation maintenance is so important
The purpose of kitchen ventilation is to safely remove harmful gases, heat, vapours, and smells. It also reduces the risk of potential fires whilst creating a cooler and more comfortable space for your colleagues and customers. Regular cleaning will avoid the build-up of dust and dirt within your appliances too, enabling them to perform to their peak for longer.
More importantly, you need to ensure you’re following health and safety regulations. For some commercial kitchens, without a fully functioning ventilation system, you may not get the planning permission you need from your local authority. To find out more take a look at the HSE’s Ventilation in Catering Kitchens regulations.
