Vent Hood Cleaning is a Legal Requirement
Local laws dictate that your Kitchen’s Hood Vent must be cleaned periodically in order to prevent a fire. Each city, municipality and county is different so keeping track of those laws and regulations can be time consuming; not to mention that different cities and counties use different standards so you can’t really do a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach either!
Did you know? After a kitchen fire, insurance companies investigate to make sure that hood vents were cleaned properly and in accordance with the local laws. If it wasn’t cleaned properly, it can be labeled as neglect and the kitchen owner can be denied the claim.
Between 2010-2014 there were $7 Million dollars worth of damage from Grease Hood/Duct exhaust fan fires
