One of the most critical tasks for maintaining a commercial kitchen and reducing fire risks is kitchen exhaust cleaning. Without regular cleaning, the hood and exhaust systems can become clogged with grease laden vapors, which are combustible materials. This is why it is essential to clean them regularly to minimize the risk of fire and other health hazards. As one of the leading certified kitchen exhaust cleaning providers of bare-metal cleaning services, we constantly emphasize the importance of regular cleaning of the exhaust system, from the hood all the way to the roof fan. But it is equally important to clean the walls, ceilings, and floors of your kitchen. An obvious statement, but it is one that is often forgotten. Having a clean ceiling is often overlooked by most business owners; maybe this is the case because it’s always above you and out of sight. Wall, ceiling, and floor surfaces take a beating every day from grease, fumes, smoke, and other pollutants. Aside from practical concerns, such as slippery floors and surfaces, keeping these areas clean prevents the buildup of dirt and bacteria, reducing many hygiene-related concerns. Just like your exhaust system, when these areas are omitted from cleaning routines, it can impact the health and safety of personnel.
