Quiet Season Ideal Time for Essential Kitchen Maintenance and Cleaning

As hotels and restaurants settle down after hustle and bustle of the festive season, certified kitchen cleaning professionals, Ingot Services, highlight the risks of health, safety and even hefty fines increased by busy custom that can easily be taken care of during January downtime.
A build-up of grease in extractor hoods and air ducts can be the cause of fires that devastate buildings and businesses and after a period of high usage the risks will be greater still.
Once the season of celebration is over, some commercial kitchens will experience a quieter start to the New Year making it an ideal time to plan for essential kitchen maintenance and deep cleaning, reducing the very real threat of future fire outbreak.

“A greasy air duct positioned over flames is a fire waiting to happen, and with flues often going up throughout a building the outcome can be devastating but avoidable with regular cleaning,” explains Alan Maynard,Managing Director of Ingot Services. “With extra custom over Christmas and New Year, restaurants will need to make sure that they keep up with the strict fire safetyregulations on clean ductwork, and a quieter time in January is an ideal opportunity to do this.”
Ingot Services specialises in cleaning extract systems, something that is easy to overlook but as too many news stories indicate, doing so can be disastrous. Taking a short cut and doing it yourself is not advisable as supportable proof of cleanliness is a major requirement of most insurancepolicies after the introduction of the Fire Safety Order in 2005.
With many years of experience in the industry, Alan is aware of the proof restaurants need. He says, “We issue a Certificate of Cleanliness that will satisfy insurers that appropriate measures have been taken to protect against the outbreak of a kitchen fire, saving our customers from hefty fines as well as reducing fire risk.”
