The Effects of Grease and Fire
When cooking, flammable residue vapors, smoke, and heat are pulled out of the building through the hood exhaust system. The vapors go into the hood, through the hood filters, into the ductwork, and to the exhaust fan where they safely exit the building. The vapors could provide fuel for a fire that could quickly spread into other areas of the building.
Call the Hood Exhaust Cleaning Pros
When you just look at a system, the danger of flammables that have collected is invisible. When a hood is shiny after cleaning, it does not indicate that hard-to-reach sections have been cleaned properly. It takes an experienced professional and specialized equipment to ensure the hood exhaust is free from all flammable materials.
A professional cleaning company can also provide detailed reports to fire inspectors and/or an insurance provider to show that the facility is being maintained, and has been maintained to the highest standard. A complete hood and exhaust cleaning is necessary for the proper maintenance of your system and will add years to your equipment’s life.
