A reliable and functional extractor fan is crucial for a thriving catering business.

These fans help to maintain the air quality in a commercial kitchen and eliminate all of the dangerous smoke, odours, and vapours that occur, allowing you to create a safe and comfortable work environment.

Here are some of the top reasons why installing and maintaining a kitchen extractor fan is of the utmost importance for your catering business.

An Extractor Fan Removes Smoke and Gas

Excess smoke and gas can be a real problem in a busy kitchen, and you need to reduce the possible hazards they can cause. Smoke and gas can lower air quality, put you at risk of fires, and lead to unhappy and uncomfortable workers.

An extractor fan will extract and eliminate smoke that is created during your regular cooking routine. A fan will also allow caterers and cooks to breathe fresher air as they do what they love.

Extractor Fans Eliminate Odours and Fumes

Excess odours can lead to problems such as unhappy customers, neighbours or even legal action.

When using a stove in your catering kitchen, a stove hood extractor fan can help remove the resulting odours.

Particularly if mounted directly above the stove, an extractor fan can help to reduce the fumes and odours that can become a problem in your kitchen.

Extractor Fans Help Cooling Down the Work Area

In addition to its other uses, an extractor fan has the added benefit of removing heat from a kitchen and cooling down the work area. Heat can be a real problem in a commercial kitchen, especially in hotter climates.

Since hot air rises, any heat that results from the kitchen will go straight into the fan, allowing cooks and workers to stay cool.

Extractor Fans Prevent Damages

As a result of eliminating smoke, odours, gas and fumes during cooking, an extraction fan can help prevent damage to walls, equipment and the building.

Smoke and grease can lead to build-up over time. A fan can extract much of the build-up before it causes damage and will allow your work environment to remain in better condition over time.

Extractor Fans Control Humidity

A kitchen extractor fan is also critical for controlling humidity. Any commercial kitchen is at risk of mold or mildew buildup if the humidity gets out of hand.

Using an extractor fan will eliminate moisture and keep the room dry, creating a less than ideal environment for mould to grow and thrive.

Mould and mildew can lead to health problems such as asthma, allergies, sinus conditions and more, so it’s best to keep it under control.
