From the healthiest vegan kitchens to the home-style cooks in country kitchens, every restaurant has a grease problem. A natural byproduct of vaporizing oils of any kind is a grease layer, and this grease can go from a vapor to a very flammable solid in your kitchen’s ductwork. Vaporized grease infects every corner of your kitchen exhaust hood and ductwork, including wrapping itself around parts of your fire suppression system. This not only heavily increases your risk of fire, but also hinders your ability to control a fire once it starts.
Outside of the obvious fire risk associated with grease build-up, there are several other risks involved:
An employee or customer could slip and fall from grease build up on tile floors
Smelly sewers and drains, attracting drain flies
Lost productivity if a three compartment sink gets backed up
Increased city charges from Fats, Oil, and Grease in your wastewater
Turned off customers from views of a dirty kitchen
