A poorly maintained kitchen exhaust duct is one of the causes of a fire outbreak in the kitchen as the accumulated grease, dirt, and oil in the ducting system provides fuel for the spread of flames. It is advisable to have the kitchen exhaust cleaning done as fire prevention besides ensuring the hygiene of the food preparation process.
Regular maintenance of the kitchen exhaust system will ensure a secure environment for cooking. A system that is safely working at peak performance will ultimately lead to a working environment that’s cleaner, cooler, productive, and hazard-free.
We have researched and invested in the best state-of-the-art equipment, tools, and degreasers. From our high-powered hot water pressure washers to our magnetic duct scrapers, to our proprietary eco-friendly degreasers, we ensure top-notch quality of work with proven and systematic techniques.

Why Clean Your Kitchen Exhaust System?
Fire Prevention Requirements
Grease contamination in Kitchen Exhaust Systems can become a potential fire hazard. The majority of restaurant fires originate from the cooking equipment and flare into the Kitchen Exhaust Ducts. Regular cleaning of the entire Kitchen Exhaust Systems is one of the most effective methods to prevent grease contamination and reduce the risk of kitchen fires.
Food Hygiene Requirements
According to the National Environment Agency (NEA) Code of Practice on Environmental Health, Kitchen Exhaust Systems shall be cleaned on a regular basis.
The cleanliness of the Kitchen Exhaust Systems is also one of the assessment criteria in NEA’s food hygiene grading of food outlets. Enforcement action may also be taken by NEA against licensees of food outlets who fail to keep a clean Kitchen Exhaust System.
