Purpose of a Kitchen Hood Exhaust System

 

With a properly functional kitchen hood, grease, smoke, and other pollutants are supposed to be trapped thereby preventing its spread into the kitchen and other parts of the house or in the restaurant proper for commercial settings. If not properly contained or if grease and oil are not removed, this may increase the risk of fire inside the structure. This happens since grease and grim deposits become inflammable over time when it turns into highly flammable substance. And when exposed to heat, fire becomes very likely.

The consequences are too damaging to consider. Employees, customers, and the building itself will be placed in extreme danger when fire occurs. And with the other materials and supplies within the kitchen, there is always the possibility that the fire will catch up very quickly. It is no wonder then that insurance companies are insistent on the strict compliance of having the proper compliance of the kitchen hood exhaust system.

Aside from the high risk of fire, consideration must be given on the impact of the air and odor of these trapped substances. These odors will lower dramatically the air quality exposing the workers and customers to health hazards, possibly causing respiratory problems. And having this kind of air quality will not surely sit well with the customers.

You might think that you have a maintenance staff and these personnel should do the cleaning. While this can certainly be done, as to whether this will be a good decision remains a question.

This also involves taking apart different parts that your staff may not be too acquainted with. This may require the use of chemicals that may add to the risk of those performing the cleaning chores.
