Protect Your Employees & Customers From Grease Fires
There are five main causes of restaurant kitchen fires:
- Cooking Equipment
- Heating Equipment
- Electrical/Lighting Equipment
- Smoking Materials
Cooking equipment is the cause of nearly 60% of all kitchen fires. When these fires start, your exhaust system has a fire suppression system that is key in putting the fire out before it spreads. It will also contain the fire but only if your hood system is on a maintenance cleaning program to reduce and remove flammable grease and oil that accumulates during every cooking event.
Exhaust hood cleaning protects your restaurant, kitchen, staff and customers. Regular hood cleaning from Facilitec Southwest is the best way to remove flammable greasy residue, declog grimy and oily exhaust systems and decrease the risk of catastrophic fires in your kitchen.
The difference between Type 1 and Type 2 hoods is in the production of grease and smoke. Type 1 hoods are used with appliances that produce grease and smoke, such as fryers, griddles, ovens and, in some cases, pizza ovens. Type 2 hoods are used with appliances that only produce heat and steam, no grease and smoke, like pasta cookers and dishwashers.

The best way to protect your roof from sustaining damage from grease spills or leakage is to incorporate a rooftop grease containment system. If grease builds up on a roof, it could lead to vermin, disrepair of the roof and an increased fire risk. A grease containment system will include:
- Catch containers to capture grease.
- Filtered grease containment units to store the grease.
- Stainless steel filters to siphon out larger particles.
