Restaurants: Hoods and Ducts
Every restaurant owner knows that their hood and duct system is the most important system within a restaurant. Inspectors, insurance companies, law makers, and more are all concerned with this system and its condition. Everyone knows that as soon as this system is not looked after appropriately great damage can and will occur.
As you know, grease may build up in the exhaust hood. This system was designed to remove grease and hot air from the kitchen. If left unclean, the fire risk becomes monumental. Without a properly functioning hood, grease may also impact functions of your kitchen. Your hood exhaust system should be inspected regularly by a trained and certified professional to determine the fire risk. The inspector will also be able to tell you how often a cleaning is required. In many cases, 6 months may be the minimum requirement, but some restaurants may need a more frequent schedule to make sure they are staying as risk-free as possible.
