Fully Licensed and Insured Hood Cleaning
Restaurant Fires: According to figures provided by the National Fire Protection Association, fire departments across America responded to an average of 8,240 structure fires at eating and drinking establishments each year between 2012 and 2016. These fires resulted in two civilian deaths each year on average, along with 115 injuries and $246 million in property damage.
These statistics are frightening to say the least. Here at One Call we know that your hood cleaning isn’t just about what the customers sees shining, it’s also about it being safe and cleaned to prevent a hood fire.
As an owner, what is your responsibility in regards to cleaning the kitchen exhaust system?
Answer: According to NFPA-96 section 4.1.5: “the responsibility for inspection, testing, maintenance, and cleanliness of the ventilation control and fire protection of the commercial cooking operations shall ultimately be that of the owner of the system, provided that this responsibility has not been transferred in written form to a management company or other party.”
In other words, it is the owner’s responsibility to keep that system clean of grease and particulate buildup, and reduce the risk of a fire hazard. An incomplete cleaning performed by a low priced contractor (with most likely inadequate insurance coverage) will not protect the owner from the cost and litigation of a fire.
