According to National Fire Association, the majority of restaurant fires is caused by the surface of kitchen cooking appliances which spreads into the kitchen exhaust systems. Regular maintenance of a restaurant’s kitchen exhaust system is one of the primary defense against fire hazards. By keeping these systems working at the optimal level, they will evacuate the smoke and grease out of the building which in turn produces a cleaner, cooler kitchen and better working environment for the employees. With 54% of all restaurant fires originated from the kitchen, the utmost caution must be exercised to ensure that the exhaust is cleaned and maintained by experienced professionals.
