Tips for maintaining a clean and hygienic commercial vent hood
If you ask any responsible kitchen owner about the most important aspects of running their business, cleanliness is probably up there in the top five. Maintaining hygiene standards of a restaurant not only derives from the need to follow food safety regulations, but is also for the security of employees and guests, and obviously necessary to stay in business.
Some areas of the kitchen prove to be more troublesome than others, such as the vent hoods. It is not only mandatory to keep the exhaust hoods clean and hygienic at all times by the authorities, but it’s a trademark of good restaurant management and practices.
Here are some tips to help you maintain your commercial vent hood in perfect condition:
Conduct a thorough cleaning of your kitchen’s exhaust system regularly
How often depends on the type of cooking and the volume your restaurant produces. For example, a fast food restaurant with long operational hours are the ones that require the most frequent cleaning.
Use the right hygienic techniques and products
Exhaust system components must be sprayed and rinsed several times to ensure that they are thoroughly clean. Industrial cleaning agents should be sprayed on the blades of the exhaust fans so that the excess grease dissolves. These are then rinsed in hot water. The process is repeated with the ducts and other parts to ensure thorough cleaning.
Be careful if you do it yourself
All gas valves and pilot lights must be shut off before we start any work. The hoods must be wrapped in plastic and a funnel must be created to allow the flow of greasy fluids to a waste disposal. Plastic sheets should be wrapped on all equipment to prevent any grease splatter during the cleaning process.
