Holiday Season Increases the Need to Inspect Kitchen Exhaust

We are at the end of October, and friends and family, as well as co-workers, are planning their holiday parties and gatherings all over Arizona. As a business owner, the last thing that you want to ignore is the Kitchen Exhaust Inspection and required cleaning ensuring your customers are safe at your restaurant or venue. Holiday Season increases the need to examine kitchen exhaust units ensuring that they are void of debris and grease, which is one of the greatest common reasons for fires during the holidays.

At K M Facility Services of Arizona, we are trained in proper inspections and cleaning of your kitchen exhaust system.

Kitchen Fires Endanger Your Customers and Your Neighbors Businesses

This week Tasos Resturant in Vancouver, B.C. experienced a terrible fire that started in the kitchen and spread throughout the commercial building. According to the Vancouver Sun News, crews kept the flames contained to the kitchen, but eight neighboring businesses suffered severe water damage, and it’s not clear if the building is safe, according to West Vancouver assistant fire chief Martin Ernst.

Checkpoints for Kitchen Exhaust Inspection and Cleaning

After we schedule your kitchen exhaust cleaning, we then proceed to clean all of your duct work, filters, fan, and hood elements by degreasing them completely. We ensure that the catch pans are cleaned out and that the ladder and roof hatch are wiped down, as well. We also remove any dirty water, grease or any other mess that might arise during the process, which includes the roof and parking lot. Afterwards, we polish the inside and outside of the stainless steel hoods and the backsplash.

After all the cleaning is done, we recheck that all the fans and kitchen equipment are working properly and place a service sticker on the hood, so our customers know when it is time for us to clean their unit again.
