If you own a restaurant, you know that it is your responsibility to have the kitchen hood exhaust cleaned. Not only is it important to keep up on kitchen hood exhaust cleanings for safety reasons, but also to make sure your restaurant stays up-to-code and running. We recommend that you schedule routine kitchen hood exhaust cleanings through an experienced fire safety protection company.
Below, you will find reasons for why you need your kitchen hood exhaust cleaned by fire safety professionals.
Reduce Risk of Fire
Your kitchen hood exhaust is the destination for most of the airborne grease particles in your restaurant kitchen. However, if you neglect to schedule commercial kitchen hood exhaust cleanings, this grease will build up until it becomes a significant commercial kitchen fire hazard.
To keep your employees safe and eliminate the possibility of significant fire damage to your commercial building, make sure you schedule restaurant hood exhaust cleanings. While some people try to cut corners by not scheduling kitchen hood exhaust cleanings, they need to also consider the cost of having their entire business burned down in what could have been a preventable grease fire. Preventative fire protection measures are there to keep your building safe from risk of fire.
Reduce Risk of Fire Damage
A dirty kitchen hood exhaust can significantly increase the likelihood of a fire. To prevent your building from being damaged in a fire, we highly recommend that you make sure your kitchen hood exhaust is cleaned and inspected on a regular basis. When you call a certified kitchen hood cleaning company, they will make sure that all accessible surfaces on the hood, duct work, and fan are cleaned down to the bare metal. This is to ensure that no greasy residue remains to create risk of fire.
Reduce Liability in the Event of a Fire
If you own a restaurant, you are legally responsible for the safety of all who eat and work there. This means that if a fire results from a dirty kitchen hood exhaust, you are held legally responsible for any injuries or deaths that occur. Kitchen hood exhaust fires are preventable, so make sure you schedule regular cleanings and inspections for kitchen hood exhausts.
In order to keep your restaurant running, it’s important to make sure that everything in your kitchen complies with fire code and your insurance requirements. When you hire a reputable fire protection contractor, they will make sure that your kitchen hood exhaust system meets requirements set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), state and local codes, and your business fire insurance.
When your kitchen hood exhaust system passes inspection, you can feel peace of mind knowing that you are taking the necessary steps to protect your business investment. You will save a lot of money by not having to pay for commercial building fire and smoke damage.
