Grease filters are an important part of any restaurant’s kitchen ventilation system. The NFPA 96 requires that all air being brought through the ventilation system pass through a grease filter first. This ensures that grease is filtered out and won’t be part of your system’s exhaust. Grease is highly flammable and needs to be kept under control at all times to ensure your business is safe from fire. Grease filters should be regularly replaced or cleaned to ensure that they are working as efficiently as possible.
The kitchen exhaust system plays a major part in keeping grease cleaning at a restaurant manageable. With an efficient restaurant ventilation system in place, any grease coming off of your grill will be taken into the system where it is caught by the filter. Making sure your grease filters are clean will ensure your ventilation isn’t wasting energy. The air that makes it through the filter is then brought through the ventilation system’s ductwork before it is deposited outdoors. A kitchen exhaust system will also take in fresh make up air to replace the air that is deposited outside.
Keeping the contaminated air from getting past your cooking appliances with an effective kitchen hood will make keeping your entire restaurant clean much easier. Allowing the grease to stay in your kitchen will result in every surface being coated with a layer of grease that constantly needs to be wiped off. The mess in your kitchen can impact how customers in your dining area feel about your establishment as well. Paying customers are far more likely to recommend a restaurant that they felt was clean to their friends and family. Having an adequate kitchen exhaust system will help your business stay clean and keep employees and customers happy.
