Have you noticed oil particles on the lids that you use to cook? Those little blobs of oil become tiny airborne particles leading to grease buildup that can easily go overlooked. What happens to the airborne grease over time? The airborne grease goes through the exhaust and sticks to the exhaust hood. This remains there, gathering more grease, smoke, food particles, and dust. This can quickly increase the risk of grease fires and is a potential hazard. Aside from the very important threat this creates for your staff and patrons, other factors such as property damage, ruined equipment and added expenses to your operation can be some of the lesser evils.
What will happen if you do not
CLEAN THE RESTAURANT HOOD?
How does it feel walking past a garbage dumpster while you are savoring a delicious bowl of ice-cream?
If left uncleaned, the exhaust hood becomes backed up. Next, the stale smell of old food, smoke, and grease will infuse into the kitchen, which will be carried with each plate of food that you serve. The smell will slowly permeate the dining hall and every other place in the restaurant. The place once visited for the delicious aroma it produced will be empty for the stale smell it produces now.
The uncleaned exhaust hood is also a fire risk as it is built up with grease. What is more important than the safety and security of those we love and care about?
The critical responsibility of every company is to provide a safe and secure work environment for its employees. As a business, you may hire the most talented and experienced workforce, but a simple glitch in the exhaust hood can ruin everything.
