Kitchen grease build up in restaurant

Dang, tomorrow’s that quarterly appointment with the local grease cleaning service company. Now I have to either come in early, or stay late (yey!), and handover a few hundred bucks for them to clean my kitchen hoods.

Isn’t there a way to eliminate them coming in altogether?

Building manager at work site determining what to do


Before I took this job, I asked building managers at certain facilities “how did you come to a conclusion to use XXXXXXX Fire Protection Company?” The usual responses were:

So I’ve purchased my fire extinguishers for my company…now I can just sit back and relax until my licensed fire protection company comes next year for inspection?

Well you can, but damage accumulates after every use, every time the extinguisher gets moved, and it gets damaged from everyday tasks that happen around the extinguisher.

That’s why the NFPA requires monthly inspections. You don’t need a licensed professional to do your monthly inspections, so we’ve developed the inspection list for you.
