Safety in Hospital Commercial Kitchens

In hospitals, safety is a top concern. So much research has gone into and continues to go into making sure proper precautions are followed to ensure the most hygienic, safe environment for all patients, visitors, doctors, nurses, and other staff. Making sure patients have ideal outcomes from surgeries and other procedures is absolutely essential. But did you know that you could be unwittingly putting everyone in your hospital at considerable risk? That’s right – many people who operate commercial kitchens in hospitals aren’t aware of the importance of making sure the exhaust system is cleaned perfectly on a regular basis.

Hand scraping and steam cleaning

We recommend signing up for both hand scraping and steam cleaning services. Hand scraping is exactly what it sounds like – simple, effective scraping of all scraping of accessible areas of your exhaust system – including the range hood, drip cups, exhaust ducts, and exhaust fans. This will prevent grease from building up in your exhaust system, which can lead to dangerous, costly flash fires. Steam cleaning involves the use of specialized equipment and involves more set-up, so it is more of an investment, but through the use of hot, pressurized water, it results in a more thorough cleaning. We recommend that hospital commercial kitchen manager sign up for monthly hand scraping services and supplement this with 2-4 steam cleanings per year. That way, you’ll receive the cost effective benefits of hand scraping services while still making sure your exhaust system receives a full polish every so often.

Certificate of Performance

After every cleaning service, we’ll provide a Certificate of Performance sticker for your exhaust system that will not only keep code inspectors satisfied, it may even lower your insurance bills. Talk about a win-win!
