Regular extract or ‘extractor hood’ cleaning is essential to the safety of commercial kitchens and ovens. Our specialist extract cleaning service works to minimise the risk of fire and bacteria spread through efficient and comprehensive removal of all grease and debris build-up within oven extracts, helping ensure businesses across the UK meet health and safety, TR-19 and EFO regulations, and creating a clean, safe internal environment.
Ingot Services' canopy cleaning service uses highly specialised equipment to effectively remove potentially dangerous build-up within and surrounding canopies, and from attached ducts and ventilation systems – helping minimise otherwise significant fire risk, limit contamination, and prevent infestation in line with both TR-19, and health and safety obligations.
Ingot Services’ commercial deep cleaning service offers businesses required to complete high levels of cleaning on a consistent basis. Throughout this process, floors, walls, ceilings, preparation surfaces, equipment, and commonly overlooked spaces such as fridge seals will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, helping ensure the safety of kitchen users, and that the space meets all health and safety requirements and regulations.
Regular oven cleaning and maintenance is key to the safe functioning of all commercial kitchens. Ingot Services’ highly trained specialists work to deliver an unrivalled level of cleanliness - helping ensure the safety of commercial kitchens. Our commercial oven cleaning service uses a combination of extensive industry knowledge and gold-standard equipment to deliver cleaning in line with all health and safety and insurance obligations.
The Importance of
Commercial Kitchen Cleaning
Maintaining consistently high standards of cleanliness across all equipment and spaces has become increasingly essential to the continued success of commercial kitchens across the hospitality industry, with commercial hygiene laws and regulations – particularly TR-19 standards, the Food Safety Act 1990 and Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 – subject to regular enforcement.
All UK commercial kitchens – from those serving local cafes to Michelin Star restaurants – must actively adhere to stringent regulation surrounding both general cleanliness, and specific regiments in order to operate safely, and without legal consequence.
Ingot Services’ wide range of specialist cleaning services work to cover all commercial kitchen cleaning requirements. From biennial duct cleaning conducted to TR-19 standards, to regularly scheduled deep cleaning, our offerings are built to satisfy legal requirements and obligations. In addition to this, correctly implemented specialist cleaning can bring a number of benefits to commercial kitchens, including;
Reduced risk of enforcement, closure or prosecution
Ingot Services commercial kitchen cleaning options are each designed to help ensure utmost compliance with all relevant health and safety and hygiene requirements. Completed to a national standard by fully qualified experts, and certified upon completion, our cleaning services work to keep commercial kitchens of all size and scope in line with legal obligations.
The vast majority of insurers offering policies covering commercial kitchens put forward stringent conditions surrounding regular cleaning of high-risk areas and appliances – particularly ductwork, and kitchen extracts, with many refusing to insure incorrectly maintained spaces. Our industry-focused services offer all necessary paperwork and documentation upon their completion.
Improved working conditions for kitchen users
Satisfactory and safe working conditions are essential to the successful operation of a commercial kitchen. Our carefully curated list of commercial cleaning services holds working conditions amongst its foremost priorities, assisting in the creation of suitable spaces posing minimal risk to kitchen users.
Decreased risk of infestation
Infestation and contamination can deal devastating blows to the public perception of businesses across any sector – but no more than those in hospitality. For this reason, it makes sense to take every precaution to ensure that all possible sources of contamination are effectively dealt with.
Minimised fire risk
A fire originating in kitchen extracts systems can lead to the total loss of a business – risking serious harm to building users, and surrounding occupants. With buildups of grease and debris within both extract and duct systems cited as a common contributor to significant fires, specialist cleaning of this equipment is recommended on a regular basis.

Commercial Kitchen Cleaning FAQs
Why is commercial kitchen cleaning important?
Whether referring to extract cleaning, canopy cleaning, equipment cleaning, or deep cleaning, commercial kitchen cleaning is not only ‘important’ but a legal requirement - meaning it must be undertaken on a suitable basis (typically according to usage) by all in operation. Besides staying in line with all legal obligations, regular cleaning conducted by professionals to industry standards typically offers commercial kitchens the following benefits;
- Improved safety levels for both staff and customers
- Reduced risk of closure, or prosecution
- Improved equipment performance and lifespan
- Reduced risk of contamination and infestation
- Minimised fire risk
- Insurance compliance
The maintenance of a safe environment is particularly important to spaces in which food is prepared on a regular basis. Should your kitchen require specialist cleaning, get in contact with Ingot Services’ expert team members today for a free consultation.
How often should a commercial kitchen be deep cleaned?
The frequency at which a commercial kitchen should be deep cleaned depends on a number of factors - primarily usage. Most legal requirements indicate that deep cleaning should be undertaken on a regularly scheduled basis - every 6 months for most commercial kitchens. However, many spaces undergoing heavy usage may require more frequent cleaning in order to stay in line with all health and safety requirements.
Ingot Services’ deep cleaning experts are pleased to offer a free, no-obligation consultation service, during which we are able to establish a deep cleaning frequency most suited to your kitchen’s condition and usage levels. In addition to this, Ingot offer a one-off deep cleaning service, particularly suited to kitchens reopening after a period of disuse, or subject to particularly heavy use for a shorter period of time.

How much does commercial kitchen cleaning cost?
The cost of commercial kitchen cleaning is highly dependent on a number of factors, including the type of service required. With commercial kitchen cleaning generally used as an umbrella term covering a number of cleaning services, including (but not limited to) extract cleaning, ductwork cleaning, canopy cleaning, oven cleaning, and deep cleaning, cost can vary significantly. In addition to this, the size of the space or type of equipment requiring cleaning must be taken into account. Finally, price may vary according to your selected provider.
Ingot services are proud to offer our clients a free, no-obligation consultation, during which we’ll evaluate your cleaning requirements, and establish a price, which can be later sent over email.
What are TR-19 standards?
TR-19 currently stands as one of the most important industry standards for ventilation cleaning. Defined by BESA in 1988, TR-19 guidelines and regulations, particularly part 7, work to standardise the way in which duct and kitchen extract systems are cleaned.
Relevant to both cleaners, and building owners, TR-19 has become the standard to which the vast majority of insurers require work to be completed to. This makes selecting a fully qualified and competent cleaning contractor more important than ever business and building owners across a number of sectors.
