Coastal Kitchen Cleans is based in the South East of England. We service all of Sussex, Kent and London and are happy to travel further if required. We have acquired a wealth of knowledge and experience within the kitchen extract industry over the last 20 years and trust in the knowledge and expertise of our trained staff.
We specialise in the cleaning of kitchen extract systems; from hood to exhaust, including fan and grease filters. Additionally, we offer services such as air conditioning ductwork cleaning, deep cleaning for commercial kitchens, and commercial oven cleaning.
Hygiene is of paramount importance in any organisation but nowhere is it more critical than in the kitchen and associated areas of the kitchen. All cleaning should be done to the standard as set out in the guidelines of the Food Hygiene Act 1994.
Fire hazards in kitchen extract systems are common – 70% of fires in commercial kitchens originate in faulty ventilation, due to fat and grease build-up. Fire can have a devastating effect on business, as insurance companies may not pay out without a recent Certificate of Cleanliness as provided by Coastal Kitchen Cleans.
It is the legal requirement of your establishment to prevent such fire from occurring as set out in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Part of the regulation stipulates that grease extract systems must be assessed for fire hazards and extractor fan cleaning as a legal requirement. The workplace should carry out a risk assessment of extraction cleaning once every three/six/twelve months, depending on the amount of use of your system.
It is recommended that your extraction system is professionally cleaned on a regular basis.
Kitchen extract cleaning is probably the most difficult and demanding of all the ventilation hygiene disciplines because ductwork can often be in confined or inaccessible places. It must be stressed that to properly clean a kitchen extract system, access panels need to be cut into the ductwork every three metres, if necessary, then the interior ductwork surfaces are thoroughly cleaned using bio-chemicals which are applied to the grease and scraped off manually.
