According to the National Fire Protection Association Standard 96 the hood system needs to be cleaned by a properly trained and certified professional.
One major reason for this is so that restaurant owners do not send their own people in to clean it because it is unlikely to get cleaned effectively.
Another reason is so that unqualified people generally, even contractors, don’t attempt to clean it when they haven’t been properly trained-certified.
What this means for you is that if you are a certified professional, your Company can be the one who cleans it.
It’s Repeat Business
The NFPA 96 requires the grease to be cleaned regularly.
|Type or Volume of Cooking||Inspection Frequency|
|Systems serving solid fuel cooking operations||Monthly|
|Systems serving high-volume cooking operations, such as 24-hour cooking, charbroiling, or wok cooking||Quarterly|
|Systems serving moderate-volume cooking operations||Semiannually|
|Systems serving low-volume cooking operations, such as churches, day camps, seasonal businesses, or senior centers||Annually|
The NFPA requires that the grease gets cleaned with regular frequency to prevent dangerous buildup.
Depending on the volume of cooking (i.e. how busy the restaurant is) determines how frequently it should be inspected for grease buildup.
When the grease reaches 2000 microns it is time for a cleaning.
Most hood cleaning companies simply clean the system regularly according to this grease buildup, once per month, every three months, or every six months.
Nursing homes, schools, and churches some are once per year cleaning.
