Purchasing a pizza oven for your commercial kitchen is one of the most expensive items in your kitchen. Because of the cost involved in pizza ovens, this is one commercial kitchen item that requires regular maintenance and cleaning, ensuring optimal performance at all times. Maintaining your pizza oven will ensure the quality of your pizza, the safety of your employees as well as reduce the fire risk in your commercial kitchen.
Dirty ovens tend to cook unevenly whereas a clean oven runs much smoother. Solid fuel burners must clean their exhaust systems regularly or risk a fire hazard.
But what is considered a solid burning fuel oven?
"Solid Fuel Burning Oven" means a chimney-connected device that burns solid fuel designed for purposes of cooking. When a solid burning fuel unit is used, it deposits what is referred to as creosote into the system or flue. The main issue with creosote is that it's extremely flammable. As the amount of creosote inside the chimney flue increases so does your risk of a fire in your commercial kitchen. This can pose a huge fire risk. By not having the creosote removed, you will not only run the risk of a fire but also be endangering your employees.
When it comes to the effective management and removal of creosote in your kitchen’s solid fuel system, there is just one solution. That solution is regular and professional cleaning by ECS Deep Clean Industries.
How often should you clean your pizza oven?
With proper cleaning, restaurant owners can provide their patrons with the unique flavours of solid fuel cooking, without the dangers associated with unmaintained creosote build-ups. Not only does it need to be cleaned to reduce fire risks, but your commercial kitchen’s pizza oven needs to be cleaned to avoid any unwanted smells, textures or flavours.
The prescribed frequency of cleaning your pizza oven is at maximum every 4 months according to the SANS regulations. Having an effective cleaning plan in place has never been easier than with ECS Deep Clean Industries.

In need of an industrial extractor fan installation? ECS Deep Clean Industries are not only the extractor fan installation specialists in Gauteng, we also deep clean and maintain your industrial extractor fan.
As a legal requirement in all restaurants, extractor fans must be installed and maintained to the prescribed by-laws. Extractor fans remove smoke, grease and fumes ensuring a safe working environment for all employees. However, there are several common extractor fan problems that can occur at any time.
Poor airflow – Extreme heat in an industrial kitchen can take its toll on the employees often working long shifts preparing the best food your restaurant has to offer. Stagnant air in an industrial kitchen is problematic and can lead to many different problems from a health point of view.. Poor airflow in an extractor fan is often related to the fan blade. Examples of possible problems might include:
- Fan efficiency is affected.
- Dirty fan blades and requires a deep clean
- Dampers might be closed.
- Leaks in duct work.
- Dirty or clogged filters
- Obstructed fan inlets causing system effects (No straight duct runs at fan inlet or outlet).
- Fan not getting adequate air from outside.
- Bad smell coming from the extractor fan
Oil and grease accumulate in the filter of your extractor fans and therefor needs to be maintained. The most common cause of a bad smelling extractor fan is a dirty filter. Therefor it needs to be replaced (if possible) or properly cleaned. Without proper and regular cleaning, your extractor fan is unable to function at full capacity and might result in a fire hazard. Regular cleaning intervals are needed.
Noisy extractor fans
The noises you hear from your extractor fan might be more serious than you think. Leaving or ignoring the noises, might result in a total kitchen shutdown. The most common problems with a noisy extractor fan are often due to the motor struggling to keep the fan running. Leaving this matter unattended, might result in a burn out of the motor and then needs to be replaced. Determining where the noise is coming from, doesn’t have to be difficult when you have a company by your side like ECS Deep Clean Industries. With our team of specialists, we will determine the problem fast and efficiently.
