Daily - Weekly - Annual Canopy Cleaning
For the efficient operation of a kitchen extract ventilation system the following minimum maintenance procedures should be implemented.
Visual inspections of a system should be carried out on a weekly basis to ensure there is no accumulation of grease build up.
Filters & collection traps should be removed and cleaned on a regular basis.
Materials used to clean the canopy & duct systems should not be of a caustic or abrasive type and should comply with COSHH regulations.
Frequency of deep cleaning to the extract systems are defined in the TR/19 Guide to Good Practise-Cleanliness of Ventilation Systems.
When a system is installed sufficient access hatches should be incorporated so that full access by a specialist is possible.

Ventilation Canopy Cleaning Policy
When you sign a Canopy Cleaning Contract with us, the scope of the work is as follows:-
A survey of the kitchen extract is undertaken to determine the level of
grease. The filters are removed from the canopy and micron
scrapings taen to determine the level of grease. The inspection of the duct from the canopy requires checking all the joints for
adequate sealing and if the system requires access doors to be installed to aid the
cleaning. Upon the starting of the Deep Clean the Tradesmen take “before” photographs for
the client’s records The cooking equipment and surrounding floor is then protected prior to work commencing.
Access is gained to the canopy via the filter banking and the grease scraped from all sections.
Once the heavy grease deposits are removed the whole canopy is sprayed with industrial de-greaser and cleaning is carried out using Febrol scouring pads & industrial kitchen roll.
When the canopy is free from grease it is then washed down with hot water & dried; stainless steel aerosol shining spray is then applied to the canopy to complete.
After work, the area is cleared and “after” photographs are taken to satisfy the client’s requirements.
Cleaning the ducting is done in exactly the same manner but using the installed
access doors to assist in cleaning purposes. After inspection of the work a certificate is produced for the client confirming the works carried out are in accordance with TR/19 Good Practise in the Cleaning of Kitchen Extract Systems.
