According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), there are more than 15,000 reported commercial and residential fires caused by cooking equipment each year in the US alone.
BOISE, ID, June 15, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Kitchen fire is a growing problem in restaurants, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) says that kitchen hoods are to blame for 30% of fires. NFPA 19 is a set of standards for the design, installation and maintenance of commercial kitchen exhaust systems.
The dangers associated with grease fires are well documented. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), there are more than 15,000 reported residential fires caused by cooking equipment each year in the US alone. This number doesn't include all those that go unreported because they were small enough to be extinguished by an extinguisher or didn't result in any damage at all.
Kitchen exhaust systems collect grease, smoke and other airborne contaminants that pose a significant fire risk to your business. If you don't keep up with routine maintenance, you run the risk of more serious fires. NFPA 19 compliance is also an important consideration for restaurants because it can affect their insurance rates or even put them at risk of losing their license if they are not compliant.
The NFPA has been pushing restaurant owners to clean their hoods more frequently. In fact, they recommend cleaning your kitchen exhaust fans every three months or even weekly if they are used often enough. To reduce fire risk and make your restaurant NFPA-19 compliant, you need to schedule regular kitchen hood cleaning services from a professional service provider.
