Having a dirty kitchen vent hood, filters and grease trap in a commercial kitchen is fuel for an intense fire. Such build up of grease and oils can quickly overcome a vent hood fire protection system. Any restaurant or establishment that cooks food commercially should have their kitchen vent hood system cleaned on a regular basis, as stated by the National Fire Protection Association’s: 96-Standard for Ventilation and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations. This standard is adopted by the State of Texas as a minimum guild line for maintaining Kitchen Vent Hood ducting, filters and grease trap. A clean vent hood and exhaust system can drastically reduce the chance of a fire in your commercial kitchen, restaurant, or food preparation facility. As one of the primary defenses against fire hazards in any commercial kitchen, your kitchen hood and exhaust system should undergo regular cleaning. NFPA-96 establishes minimum frequencies for the inspection of kitchen vent hood systems. However, based on the type or volume of cooking, inspections, and cleanings, services may be required more often.
