The Importance of Regular Kitchen Hood Cleaning

All property owners should be aware of the condition of their hood systems. This is especially true for restaurants and other businesses with commercial kitchens. Over time, accumulated grease from cooking travels through the kitchen’s exhaust hood and vent hood filters into the duct work leading to the exhaust fan on the roof. Since kitchen grease is extremely flammable, it can catch on fire with a single stray spark, which can damage your kitchen and even spread to other parts of your home or business within seconds.

According to section 11.3 of the NFPA 96 Guidelines (Fire Code), your business should opt for exhaust system inspection annually (low volume cooking operations), semi-annual (moderate-volume cooking operations), quarterly (high volume cooking operations), or months (solid fuel cooking operations). Furthermore, section 11.4.1 of the NFPA 96 Guidelines states that upon inspection, if found to be contaminated with grease-laden vapors, your kitchen’s entire exhaust system should be “cleaned by a properly trained, qualified, and certified company or person.”

Why Choose SouthWest Diversified?

Most kitchen hood cleaners only clean the areas that you can visually see, often neglecting or ignoring deeper components out of plain sight. However, regions out of plain sight also get loaded and clogged with grease and oil components that can lead to kitchen fires in your hood system.
