Commercial kitchen exhaust hoods are the starting point of the commercial kitchen ventilation system. There are essentially two main types of commercial vent hoods that are used – Type 1 and Type 2.
You don’t have to own a restaurant to have a commercial kitchen. Hospitals and nursing homes, airports and government facilities, hotels, schools and even food trucks all have kitchens that can feed a crowd. It takes longer for grease to build up in a low-volume commercial kitchen, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore it altogether.
As we near Thanksgiving and Christmas, friends, family and even co-workers are planning their holiday parties and gatherings. As a business owner, the last thing you should ignore is your restaurant’s kitchen exhaust system. Keeping inspections up to date and scheduling required cleaning ensures your customers are safe at your restaurant or venue.
Restaurants – with their open flames, hot equipment, electrical connections, cooking oils, cleaning chemicals and paper products – have all the ingredients for a fire to flame out of control.
