DON’T LET THIS BE YOU! ABOVE IS A RECENT RESTAURANT FIRE IN TAMWORTH WHICH STARTED IN THE KITCHEN AND QUICKLY SPREAD THROUGH THE EXHAUST DUCTING.

HOW WOULD YOUR BUSINESS COPE WITH A KITCHEN FIRE?

Why pay insurance for the event of fire? The money you receive will never compensate for the stress and worry if it happens.
Why not prevent the risk from being so great….!

DID YOU KNOW? NOT ALL FILTERS NEED CLEANING EVERY TIME…

Cleaning kitchen grease filters either yourself or with filter exchange can mean excessive costs.
Sometimes not frequent enough, sometimes too much.
Not all filters need cleaning the same frequency, so why are they?

ARE YOU SURE YOUR HOODS, CANOPY AND DUCTS ARE BEING CLEANED PROPERLY?

Waiting for grease to accumulate inside the kitchen exhaust is not a proactive way. Isn’t preventing the grease entering the exhaust better? How often and frequently do you really need to get the hood, canopy and ducts clean to be safe? How can you really know the job has been done properly??? Do you check their work after duct cleaners have been to be sure… Insurance says it’s your responsibility! Access can be restricted.

IS YOUR HOOD/ DUCT CANOPY CLEANED AND COMPLIANT FOR INSURANCE? 

Insurance and Australian standards all specify the necessary minimum to keep risk of fire down. * NOTE – This is minimum and AS1851 says it can be more frequent.
The problem is, most are barely doing the minimum.
What is worse is that in Shepherd Filters experience there are some real problems within the industry. Cleans are being done daily by duct cleaning operators with no real experience, training or certification. Either this or they short cut their way through the job and do the minimum or what they know the customer will see.

24 hour post clean dirty hood

These two pictures are from inside a hood/ canopy literally 24 hours after a clean was done. The customer thought he got what he paid for, but this is a fire risk and the contractor only cleaned what was necessary to satisfy what the customer could access and view.

ARE YOU SURE YOUR SYSTEM IS AS CLEAN AS YOU THINK?

The cleaning of a hood/ canopy is different to cleaning costs for a full system clean.

Laws and standards talk about cleaning of filters and hoods and canopies monthly but the complete system from hood to fan on roof must be done every 6 months to annually.
Many pay for hood canopy cleans for a couple of hundred dollars but that’s not what is required for insurance.

Frankly the cost to get the complete system cleaned can be thousands $$$$$
It can also be impossible as there aren’t many access panels. To put access panels in will cost so much money and no one wants to do that therefore systems can go uncleaned for years, unaware the duct cleaner hasn’t don’t what they thought they needed.
Certificates are issued for just hood and canopy which is a monthly task by AS1851.

Neglect of duct can void insurance and there are court cases where duct cleaners were sued for negligence or the restaurant owner held liable for not ensuring they got the appropriate clean.

Grease accumulation also on the fan can reduce the lift and performance of the fan. Example here: greasy fan
