Owning or managing a restaurant is a complex enterprise that can be very fun and rewarding, but also very stressful and even dangerous if it’s not properly managed.
One of the main hazards that restaurants can suffer come from dirty or unmaintained kitchen exhausts systems. If you have experienced any of the following symptoms/consequences, you need to keep an eye on your kitchen exhausts and schedule a vent cleaning before it’s too late.
Here are 4 awful consequences of unmaintained exhaust systems:
There is one thing that all restaurant managers need to keep in mind. Kitchens are the most important part of your business. Yes, decoration matters, creating a nice and comfortable atmosphere for your diners matter, as well as offering great customer service and serving good food, but all of these aspects should not be as important as having a clean kitchen.
Restaurant kitchens need to be kept clean all the time to avoid spreading out diseases that come from handling food and cooking it.
A great way to keep your kitchen air clean is by cleaning your kitchen exhausts systems. This will remove grease and bacteria particles in the air, and will prevent problems such as bad smells, fire hazards, and bacteria propagation.
Keeping your restaurant’s kitchen exhaust dirty can be one of the most harmful and dangerous things.
All restaurant exhausts accumulate grease, and when its levels surpass the safety zone, the extractor will likely fail due to the excess of grease accumulation, reducing your kitchen’s air flow dramatically and making it prone to fires.
The lack of maintenance of your kitchen exhaust systems could cause it to overwork and fail in no time, leaving your business exposed to many complications such as work absence, fire hazards, disgusting smells, unhappy customers, penalties for neglecting the safety regulations and more.
A good habit is to perform a vent cleaning to keep you kitchen exhaust system well maintained, running properly, and creating a safe and clean cooking environment.
