Standards for ventilation and controlling fire prevention are key to the healthy and continued success or overall operation of any home or business property. Without meeting all standards with flying colors, once again, potential places of business or residence may be evacuated or demolished. It’s a serious matter: Cleaning all restaurant or business kitchens, for example, must be properly and regularly performed when requested, and failure to do so may result in more than minor fees. All employees must cook and clean to all required codes of standard set forth by the NFPA or National Fire Protection Association.
The NFPA acts as the final legal authority on all matters related to fire, electrical and building safety. Every single U.S. commercial cooking establishment is required to conduct kitchen exhaust cleaning; insurance companies, fire marshals and health inspectors require scheduled or unexpected kitchen grease exhaust cleaning. A visit from one of these officials is a serious matter and must be acted upon immediately. One properly trained, certified and qualified is required to perform each cleaning. Inspection frequency may vary and may even happen without fore-warning or prior mention: Inspectors usually appear monthly, quarterly, semi-annually and annually.
