A grease fire can be devastating to a business, causing loss of property and, in some cases, life. A properly maintained hood exhaust system is the first line of defense in preventing grease fires in your kitchen. If your hood exhaust system isn’t properly maintained, grease and other waste can contaminate your roof and cooling system—which is not only a fire hazard, but can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your property.
Nightly cleaning by your kitchen staff is a start, but isn’t nearly enough to keep the grease from building up inside your exhaust unit or on your roof. Most other hood cleaning companies only clean the visible surfaces of the hoods—the fans and the surface just inside the ducts. This doesn’t address the grease build-up inside the ducts and roof or excessive smoke in your kitchen during high volume cooking times.
A licensed, bonded and International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association (IKECA) certified hood exhaust cleaning company like Sun Devil Hoods is your best defense against grease fires.
