How much do you really spend on duct cleaning?
Do you really know just how much you're spending on duct cleaning?
When considering your true cost of duct cleaning, it is not enough to simply look at the standalone cost of the professional duct clean. When you look into it, there are many more costs involved - logistical, administrative and also in terms of lost revenue through temporary kitchen closure.
The size of the structure within which your kitchen is located can have a huge bearing on costs. For example, kitchens situated within large venues such as airports/ shopping centres/ exhibition centres etc will have complex access issues, where huge amounts of resource is required in the planning of each duct cleaning operation. Often these venues have hundreds of metres of ductwork, complete with risers, corners and other hard to reach areas. Do you spend hours planning how you will ensure the entire route of the ductwork is cleaned? Or do you just 'do enough' in the parts of the kitchen extraction system that are visible.
Below are a few factors to consider when calculating your true cost of duct cleaning:
|How easy is it to access all parts of the ductwork? Is scaffolding required?||How much staff resource is used in the organisation of each duct clean? Including overtime?||How much revenue is lost due to kitchen closure whilst the duct clean to take place?|
|Do the duct cleans have to be carried out at night for customer safety?||How much time is spent training staff on duct cleaning protocol?||How much resource is put into meeting compliance and insurance requirements?|
|Do you have to liaise with other businesses to schedule in duct cleans?||Is there any staff absence due to illness/ health and safety relating to duct cleaning?||How much time is spent by staff on cleaning hoods, canopies, filters etc?|
