Preventative Maintenance for Kitchen Hood Cleaning

Keep your commercial kitchen hoods in compliance with preventative maintenance by 86 Repairs.

One of the most critical pieces of infrastructure in a commercial kitchen is the restaurant hood. If you don’t keep your hood properly maintained with regularly scheduled maintenance, you’re opening your restaurant up to a serious fire risk.

Where there’s smoke there’s fire, grease, and moisture.

Your kitchen exhaust fan moves these components up and through the kitchen hood, air filters, and into the building ductwork. The buildup of grease and moisture becomes a fire hazard, which can only be prevented through regularly scheduled cleaning.

Stay in accordance with NFPA 96 Standards, which include the regulations for ventilation control and fire protection of commercial cooking operations.
