Why Kitchen Extraction Cleaning is Important

You must make sure that the extraction system in your kitchen is safe and clean. Kitchen extraction cleaning is very important.

Why? You may ask. Because, if you fail to clean your extraction system regularly, it will quickly get clogged up by fats, grease and oil. You can bet on that.

Worst-case scenario, an unclean extraction system could even cause a fire hazard in the kitchen. Here’s how it could happen:

Say, you didn’t clean the extraction fan in your kitchen for several months. We all know what would happen. Over time, dirt, grease and oil would clog up on the surface of the fan filter. Right?

Now imagine what would happen if you exposed that dirty fan filter to a fire hazard.

What would happen if you exposed that fan filter to a fiery spark from a cooking pan, for example, or to billows of hot ash? A fire would, of course, quickly spread.

 

The fire hazards of unclean extraction systems

If that wasn’t bad enough, there is another way that unclean extraction systems could ignite a fire in your kitchen:

Here’s the thing, no fan filter can completely fend off smoke; use any fan filter for long enough, and it will get covered in oily, flammable dust.

If a fiery substance were to make contact with a dust-covered fan filter, a fire would be sure to spread. To make things worse, fires that start this way are hard to detect, let alone stop.

We’ll conclude this article with the same words we began it with:

You must make sure that the extraction system in your kitchen is safe and clean.

You may only need to clean your extraction system as little as once every six months. Or perhaps it may be once every three months or even several times per year. No matter how many times you have to clean your extraction system, the ensured safety you receive will always be worth the effort.

Properly maintaining the extraction system in your kitchen will help you to make your kitchen a safer environment to work and cook in.
