The actual commercial kitchen exhaust system cleaning guidelines are outlined in the National Fire Protection Association Standard 96 otherwise known as the Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations (NFPA-96 Standard). The NFPA-96 Standard provides the quality safety necessities associated with the planning, installation, operation, review, and maintenance of all personal and public kitchen operations. All commercial kitchen operators and kitchen exhaust hood cleaners must observe strict compliance of this regulation.
According to the standard, the majority of restaurant fires originate on the kitchen cooking appliances and flare into the kitchen exhaust systems. Regular maintenance of the exhaust system is one of the best defenses against fire hazards. By keeping the kitchen systems working properly, they will clear the smoke and grease out of the building. This will produce a cooler, cleaner kitchen and a better working environment for the staff.
Kitchen hood cleaning is the process of removing greases that have accumulated inside the exhaust systems of commercial kitchens. If you are a commercial kitchen operator, you must comply with this to be NFPA-96 Standard compliant. Exhaust systems must undergo inspection at certain intervals, with constant usage, to know if sufficient grease has accumulated and if cleaning is already necessary.
As the cooking process varies in every restaurant, the frequency of cleaning is also different. NFPA-96 Standard clearly states the schedule of cleaning your kitchen hoods.
