Hygiene has become an integral part of our day-to-day life after the outbreak of COVID 19. To keep up the hygiene, every restaurateur must make sure all the departments in the restaurant are following the sanitary guidelines along with serving tasty food.

Benefits of proper ventilation
Reduction of odours
When the production of food increases, the amount of odour will also increase rapidly. The odour of cooked, over-cooked, burned food and the smell of raw materials on the kitchen counters will ruin the restaurant mood. To help your staff to breathe fresh air, should install proper ventilation.
Removal of grease
Grease is another common problem in a restaurant kitchen that can coat the walls and ceilings. To eradicate the grease from the air and off the surface, restaurateurs must use proper ventilation.
The kitchen premises will be filled with scorching heat with continuously working stoves and ovens. To get rid of this, proper ventilation is a must.

The kitchen is the place for airborne contaminants. The burning fuel can produce harmful carbon monoxide, leading to dangerous situations. A proper ventilation system can help prevent this and make high air quality.
