FILTER EXCHANGE SERVICE

Aims & limitations of this method

Filter Exchange is a traditional method of filter cleaning for commercial kitchens. We discuss the purpose, aim and costs of this service in this video.

We also look into some important factors and alternatives that commercial businesses should consider in order to make the right decision that best suits their business needs (and budget).

WHY CLEANING KITCHEN GREASE FILTERS
IN-HOUSE CAN BE A PROBLEM

Kitchen hood cleaning for staff can be risky with injuries that occur while cleaning kitchen exhaust filters and equipment can be damaged when used to stand on to reach the grease filter hoods.

Filter exchange services can be expensive, especially for smaller commercial kitchens, so the option of cleaning kitchen grease filters in-house can seem like an attractive alternative. Should you install kitchen grease filters incorrectly however, it can lead to duct-work contamination. This can result in a higher risk of fire and/or repair & maintenance issues. Kitchen exhaust cleaning with hot water and chemicals can also create an unsafe work environment for your staff and used without correct procedures, can even result in injury and damage to equipment. If the staff are not trained with the correct procedures, you risk the potential for your insurance claims to be denied.

Kitchen grease filters from Shepherd Filters will therefore be your best defence against a restaurant exhaust inspection infringements or fines. Insurance claims are commonly rejected if grease hood filters, canopies or the exhaust system have not been properly cleaned and maintained. Avoid this by installing disposable kitchen grease filters or contact us directly for more information.
