Airborne grease and kitchen fumes constitute fire hazards. Hence, a serious environmental concern. Laws and regulations in various countries around the world require commercial food service operations to install a kitchen exhaust system that evacuates too much heat, airborne grease, moisture and smoke from the cooking area.

The kitchen ventilation system required must have a hood, filters, ducts and exhaust fans. The system is monitored and maintained in accordance with laws and regulations of the national or local governments.

Kitchen ventilation systems are inspected monthly or quarterly and require a system cleaning due to grease build-up. On average an exhaust system cleaning uses about 350 gallons of water and cleaning agents.

Grease is animal fat in melted or soft state. It is one of the most dangerous fire hazards in kitchens. This is because of fast build up in a day’s use. Another reason is that it is highly flammable.

Indoor air or air inside the typical home has about twice the concentration of dust as the outside atmosphere. When combined with airborne grease molecules from cooking, it creates a sticky mess demanding tough cleaning measures. Moreover, removing the grease requires application of a highly alkaline solution.

Kitchen ventilation cleaning is a tough task and it is extremely important to be regular. Hence, manufacturers of ventilation systems must also provide cleaning and degreasing services in the same intensity and focus as in providing repair services.
