The Importance of Range Hood Cleaning, Queens, New York

A kitchen fire is every restaurant’s worst nightmare; unfortunately, they can happen often unless the proper cleaning measures are taken — like regular range hood cleaning. Major Fire Protection in Long Island City, NY, wants you to know that without the proper care and attention, your commercial kitchen can quickly become a fire hazard, so they’ve collected some more information for you on the importance of range hood cleaning.

If you want to keep your customers and employees safe from fire hazards, here are four reasons range hood cleaning is essential: 

  • Prevent Kitchen Fires: Over time, grease, dirt, food particles, and other coagulates can collect onto the hood of your cooking range and develop into a highly-flammable, glue-like substance. With the right amount of heat, this substance can ignite and quickly get out of control; that’s why regularly cleaning your range hood is highly recommended.
  • range-hood-cleaning-long-island-city-nyImproves Air Quality: Clean fire hoods don’t only help improve the efficiency of your kitchen, they also ensure that the air inside your restaurant remains of the highest quality. By having a clean range hood, you’ll also reduce the amount of airborne particles in your restaurant, creating a healthier atmosphere for guests and employees. 
  • Maintain Local Ordinances: Not only will range hood cleaning keep your staff and clients safe from bad air and fire hazards, but it also ensures you remain in compliance with local ordinances. Many municipalities, Long Island City included, require such cleaning as part of the fire code; refusal to comply can result in hefty fines and forced closure until the problem is remedied.
  • Keep Insurance Coverage: Having proper insurance coverage is extremely important for a business, especially in case there’s an emergency or accident on your property. Before paying out claims, insurance providers will certify that a restaurant has remained in compliance with all health, fire, and safety regulations; if you suffer an emergency or fire at your restaurant and officials learn your range hood hasn’t been cleaned as it should, it could cause serious repercussions. 

Running a restaurant or commercial kitchen can be a lot of work, so if you need help cleaning and remaining in compliance, let the professionals from Major Fire Protection Corp handle all of your range hood cleaning needs.
