Safety Measures Hood cleaners should take while cleaning the Hood
We all know that Hood is an important part of our kitchen and we have to maintain it properly and it should be cleaned only by professional hood cleaners who are assigned from kitchen hood cleaning company and also before selecting a company don’t forget to check whether they have the NFPA certificate as this certificate ensures that the company who has this can work as a cleaning company for restaurants and they are given this certificate by the government.
The first time this certificate was introduced in Boston after the famous Boston fire incident in which two fire-fighters were killed and the cause of fire was later revealed to be improper maintenance of the kitchen exhausts and hood.
Now, let’s talk about safety measures Hood cleaners should take while cleaning the mood and kitchen exhausts pipes. The risk of fire hazard isn’t the only one involved with kitchen exhausts cleaners but also there are various dangers and precautions must be taken accordingly. One of the most common yet fatal is the threat of electric shock. Since, it’s a kitchen there will always be various electrical boards so water has to be used preventively so as to not cause electric shock and there’s also electricity entering the same ceiling fan so the cleaner might get to experience fatal shock if precautions aren’t taken. To prevent from electric shock getting you a locking mechanism should be placed over the electric breaker that controls the switches of the hood’s electric board. This will prevent the switch from being accidentally flipped while cleaning and it will also ensure safety of others as only the one who has placed it can be able to unlock it so no other cleaner can unlock it unless they are the one who placed the lock.
Another hazard is falling of the ladder while cleaning the safety of hoods isn’t only the important thing here but also that of the cleaner. A cleaner is much more precious than kitchen hood because it involves life. To prevent ladders from slipping leading the cleaner to fall there are many precaution that can be taken into consideration like using a rope and securing it with ladder or a bungee cord to fix object of the building so that the cleaner will be safe hanging in the air if the ladder tips off. The ladder used should also be cleaned regular or the slippery ladder might cause it to tip off hurting the cleaner in the process. Ladders aren’t the only one that can fall but also the fans which can fall and pull the wires out so a fan hinge kit should be installed by business owner when starting his business. As this not only secures the life of the cleaner but also the kitchen hood. Appliances should also be cleaned and checked properly because sometimes hazardous situations can be present even after cleaning.
The technicians should also take care about when to clean the kitchen hood and make sure to check whether the utensils used are cooled down so as to not fall in hot deep fryer and burning in the process by mistake. Common sense should also be considered when cleaning the hood as well as taking care of the temperature of environment whether it’s sunny, rainy or winter.
