Hood Cleaning is an essential maintenance for commercial kitchens and restaurants. Proper monitoring and maintenance of your kitchen hoods will not only keep you compliant, but will prevent dangerous fire hazards in the long run.
Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations
NFPA-96 Standard section 11.4 provides the minimum fire safety standards related to the design, installation, operation, inspection and maintenance of all public and private cooking operations. It also states there the qualifications of a proper hood cleaning provider. All commercial kitchen operators should comply with this standard.
Cooking different kinds of foods results in a grease build up in your kitchen. Continuous grease build up over time can result to fire which can be devastating for your business. Studies show that one of three fires in the United States is caused by restaurant fires.
When your kitchen hoods are well-maintained, there is a low chance of fire accident. Hood systems should be monitored and inspected overtime at regular intervals.
How Often Do I Need My Vent Hoods Cleaned?
Your cleaning schedule will depend on your usage and the type of hood you have in your kitchen. NFPA-96 Standard requires cleaning to be done monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually depending on the amount and type of cooking taking place.
Having clean kitchen vent hoods improves the air circulation in your kitchen. It can help in preventing carbon monoxide poisoning which is harmful for those who dine in your restaurant. It also creates a comfortable working environment for you and your employees. Also, it can help in improving the efficiency of your kitchen equipment, and may help you lower your energy bills. When your kitchen equipment is efficient, it can give your more production at lower cost.

The basic principle of ventilation is that contaminated air is exhausted outside the atmosphere, while being replaced with clean and fresh air. This also applies to kitchen ventilation regardless of the size and design of a kitchen. What makes it different is that kitchen exhaust systems produce large volumes of air. For this reason, food service industry standards for ventilation are more complex than a standard exhaust system.
What is Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning?
Kitchen exhaust cleaning is the process of removing greases that have accumulated inside the ventilation systems of commercial kitchens. A proper cleaning of the entire kitchen exhaust system includes the hoods, filters, fans and all associated horizontal and vertical duct works. It is important to monitor this because when left unclean, these exhaust systems can accumulate grease over time which is extremely prone to fire hazards. Primarily, the leading cause of restaurant fire is a blocked exhaust system.
