A commercial kitchen’s grease filter works by capturing flammable grease particles from your exhaust system. In fact, research shows that a properly working grease filter collects up to 98% of grease deposits within your system and, in turn, significantly helps prevent the risks of a flash fire.
However, it’s not as easy as having an exhaust system with a grease filter installed in your kitchen. As the owner and/or operator of your commercial kitchen, it’s important that you engage in the regular upkeep of these fire safety kitchen devices to not just keep them in compliance but also to keep them in safe, working order.
Although our Flue Steam technicians specialize in all parts of kitchen exhaust systems, let’s talk specifics: grease filters. Because they have their own individual upkeep, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the following information:
As tedious as it may sound, approximately every 14 to 28 days (depending on how much oil or grease gets used in your kitchen), you must either clean or replace your kitchen’s grease filter. These filters may play a role in collecting grease, but even they can become overloaded with grease buildup. As a result, your grease filter may struggle to properly do its job going forward. This is why regular filter cleanings and replacements are imperative.
By making sure to engage in this regular maintenance, you’re ensuring that your commercial kitchen will be less likely to break out in flames due to the overaccumulation of grease.
The problem with grease filter maintenance is that, well, it requires quite frequent upkeep. It’s easy to forget to clean or replace your filter. Restaurant owners may even have trouble gauging whether or not it’s the right time to replace their filter. In addition, some folks may have difficulty deciding whether their filter needs to be simply cleaned or completely replaced.
