Besides obeying the law, here are three more great reasons to have your kitchen hoods cleaned by a professional on a regular basis:
1.Half of the restaurant fires reported every year start in the kitchen. It’s hard to believe that they all don’t start there, actually, but issues like faulty wiring are at fault some of the time. Still, if a fire of any kind makes it to your kitchen’s exhaust system, you’d better be sure that the hood and ducts as grease-free to avoid major damage. 2.Even cooking equipment that you wouldn’t think could start a fire actually can. You’d probably guess that deep fat fryers rank high on the list of cooking equipment that starts fires. It also makes sense that open-fire grills are a high risk, but restaurant owners are sometimes surprised when they learn that ovens and stoves can start fires with the amount of heat they put off, not just with an open flame. 3.Fire suppression systems don’t always work.
Modern kitchen exhaust systems have duct work that is sealed better than older systems in the attempt to keep grease fires from spreading. They are extremely effective, but if you have one, that doesn’t mean that you can ignore your routine kitchen exhaust hood cleaning! You’ll still need to maintain a clean system in order to keep the risk of fire as low as possible. In addition to preventing fires and staying in line with local and federal food service codes, you’ll be doing yourself a huge favor when you call Houston Hood Cleaning Services Inc. We can make the air inside your restaurant feel fresh and clean – a noticeable difference from other restaurants that feel stuffy and dirty because of grease and smoke that’s sitting inside their kitchen exhaust system.
