Commercial Kitchen Extraction & Ventilation
Appropriate extraction and ventilation systems, including odour control systems are essential in commercial kitchen environments. Balanced extraction and fresh air systems are required by law, as with all new systems they also need planning permission. But most importantly, when fitted correctly, they significantly minimise the risk of fires and carbon monoxide/dioxide levels that help to ensure the safety of your staff and your customers.
Your extraction system comprises of an extraction canopy, made from 304 grade stainless steel and includes an extract fan, intake fan, heater battery, speed controllers, ducting, baffle filters, silencers, carbon filters and a gas interlock. The baffle filters need to be removed and cleaned regularly to avoid a build up of particles, grease and dirt. We are able to provide a scheduled deep clean of your canopy, ductwork and filters. The minimum deep clean requirement for light use would be every 12 months (check terms and conditions of your insurance cover) or as often as every 3 months dependant on usage and style of cooking.
All commercial kitchen cleaning operations undertaken by AVE Ltd are fully certificated.

Commercial Kitchen Extract Cleaning
The nature of an extraction system is to suck grease, dirt, fats and hot air from your cooking environment. After long and heavy periods of use, this can result in a build-up, which needs unblocking. For this reason, we also carry out cleaning of extraction systems for commercial kitchens.
