Which Products to Choose for Cleaning The Ventilation?

Kitchen ventilation ducts require regular cleaning to ensure they work effectively. While other readily accessible areas of a commercial hood can be cleaned every day or once a week, ventilation ducts require much more time and effort. This means that you should schedule a more elaborate cleaning session once in a while. At Antiflamme Purafiltre, we understand your time restraints and recommend using the right products to keep the ventilation ducts clean. When it comes to cleaning the filters, aluminum and galvanized steel are prone to corrosion and discoloration from chemicals. So you should check the manufacturer’s recommendations before using a method and product.

When it comes to kitchen exhaust and duct cleaning, the code requires that the hood should be checked for grease buildup on a monthly basis. The fan and duct must be checked once every 6 months. Your insurance policy also affects this frequency. We at Antiflamme Purafiltre recommend that you follow this schedule and take all the steps necessary to keep the hood and ventilation clean and clear.
