Filter cleaning

regular cleaning is important!

Grease filters are important in your kitchen extraction system to trap grease and oil before the evacuation of odours, smoke and heat. However, as grease builds up on the filters airflow reduces. This can increase the risk of fire, cause the fan to overwork (and fail), and cause the kitchen to heat up. It is important to clean the grease filters regularly to ensure optimal performance and to ensure the safety of your kitchen staff and customers.

We provide programmed cleaning of grease filters – weekly, fortnightly, monthly or to suit. Filters are exchanged, clean ones for dirty ones or we provide a same day pick up and return service. All filters are removed from the site and returned to our premises for cleaning in a purpose built wash-bay and filtration tanks. FFCS staff never clean filters on-site – to do so would be contrary to council bylaws. We operate purpose built equipment to thoroughly clean your filters. No caustic agents are used as they adversely react with aluminium filters. We can repair damaged filters or supply new filters. Our service is flexible and is tailored to individual client requirements – see our dedicated territories and technicians below. We can replace carbon cells, fibreglass coalescers, and clean grease scrubber units.

Territories – tailored to your needs

We have designed the territories to ensure a dedicated technician in each area to ensure high quality and personalised service. It also means we can attend to any urgent requests faster and more efficiently. If the designated day doesn’t suit your business then we’ll manage accordingly to ensure the job gets done.
