Roof top grease is a major problem for commercial kitchen owners for many reasons. When grease accumulates on your roof, it can cause cracks, bulging, searing, and deterioration. The roof might also become unsafe for walking by hood cleaning and maintenance workers. A grease damaged roof may be a violation of insurance requirements, OSHA standards, and fire codes.
One of the worst results of grease roof damage is a significant and amplified fire hazard. Grease is the most common fuel of restaurant fires. Restaurant fires often start in the kitchen during cooking and travel into the hood/vent system. If that system has extra grease accumulation also, it turns into a vehicle for the fire to move to the roof top instead of serving as some kind of fire containment. If grease has spilt on the roof, the fire will likely get on the roof and cause major destruction putting the rest of the building in danger. Keeping up with your grease containment system is an important part of fire damage control in the unfortunate event of a kitchen fire.
Preventing grease damage demands recurring maintenance that can conveniently be joined with your exhaust hood cleaning program. Your hood cleaning service provider should be experienced and trained to evaluate your grease containment needs and suggest suitable recommendations for your system. Your hood cleaning service provider can additionally install a grease containment system as well as regularly exchange the grease absorbent pads that sit in the grease containment tray.
