There is strict legislation in place to ensure that regular deep cleaning of canopies takes place and that it is done by a professional company.  Regular canopy cleaning will remove the build-up of grease and dust which can become a breeding ground for mould and bacteria and pose a significant health risk to employees and diners.  It will also minimise the possibility of attracting vermin to your commercial kitchen and reduce the risk of fire.
