Every unit of the community should be vigilant about the safety of their environment.

In that case, the National Environmental Agency of Singapore (NEA) works hand in hand in setting the standard regulations that each and every establishment should comply with. The agency has applied a strict set of rules and regulations with regards to cleaning of the kitchen exhaust. On a formal note given by NEA, it is thereby emphasized how important compliance to this rules is that the ceilings, beams and exhaust ducts should cleaned at least once a year during major spring cleanings. This is a rule that should not be disregarded since certain fines and suspension may be imposed due to unclean exhaust.

However, people should not only comply in fear of fines and penalties but it is better to abide by this notion because of the benefits it would provide.

Kitchen exhaust cleaning gives scores of advantages. Case in point is that the regular maintenance and servicing of kitchen exhaust system defenses against fire hazards. Moreover it will contribute in the production of a cleaner, cooler kitchen and working environment for the employees. It is as well important in maintaining the cleanliness of the working area and the products processed inside that quarter. It should be realized that unclean exhaust greatly affects hygiene level and the sale of unclean food is significantly prohibited.

Excessive grease and dirt accumulating on the ventilation fans of the kitchen vents may likewise shorten the lifespan of the ventilation motor if not maintained, thus not only increasing the risk of fire hazards but also alleviating your costs in requiring new equipment.

Failure to comply with NEA’s set of rules and regulations may result to suspension of Hawker License, leading to 16 demerit points and get fined with a total of SGD $1,000. So instead of risking the safety of your business due to fire hazards, violations on health standards and more it is much better to just act in accordance with with these rules by scheduling regular degreasing and inspection – as these are crafted for good reasons serving a greater purpose of keeping everybody safe.
