Reduces and controls the emissions of dangerous particles
As the vent hood accumulates grease, smoke, and grime, it becomes less efficient in trapping these particles. This lets the harmful particles roam around and even infiltrate the rest of the building.
Reduces risk for kitchen fires
If the accumulated grease and oil heats to high enough temperatures, it is liable to ignite and cause a fire. The more grease particles trapped and accumulated, the more of a risk you take.
Control insurance costs
Insurance companies take fire safety compliance very seriously. If your establishment is found in violation of any of the codes, your premium is likely to increase.
Improves overall kitchen hygiene and cleanliness
Nobody wants to have old food residue around their workspace. Maintaining the facilities clean ensures a more hygienic environment in which to prepare food.
