When It Comes to Kitchen Exhaust Systems, Grease is NOT the Word!

Heat, smoke and grease vapors are pulled through your kitchen hood exhaust system through the hood, into the ductwork and out toward the roof’s exhaust fan where it can escape the building. A kitchen exhaust system works well when clean, but when left unchecked, the flammable residue created by the grease and oils in these traveling vapors poses a serious fire safety threat. The buildup combined with high temperatures in the kitchen can ignite and cause fire to quickly spread through the ventilation system. Remove the grease, and you remove the most significant threat to your kitchen’s fire safety.
