Did your Exhaust System Break Down?

April 7, 2017

Did your Exhaust System Break Down?The exhaust system is one of the most important elements of any commercial kitchen. The purpose of a kitchen exhaust system is to remove hot air and odors as well as safely eliminating vaporized grease, which is a natural byproduct of cooking. Naturally, cooking foods with oil results in more vaporized grease, so if your commercial kitchen fries or sautees frequently, properly maintaining your kitchen’s exhaust system is especially essential. Failing to keep your commercial kitchen exhaust system clean and in good working condition will compromise its ability to do its job properly.

If your commercial kitchen exhaust system isn’t able to pull hot air, odors, and vaporized grease from your kitchen effectively, too much grease will build up in the system. Then you’ll run the risk of dangerous flash fires within your exhaust system ducts. If that happens, the fire department will have to be called, and you’ll have to shut down your business for repairs, resulting is plenty of lost income. Avoid a huge interruption to your business by proactively maintaining your commercial kitchen exhaust system.
