If you’re looking for a rooftop grease containment in Denver, you’ve found your providers. The accumulation of grease is a major fire hazard. What many restaurant owners may not know, is that it can also result in the caving in of your roof. Since we're a Denver Hood Cleaning company, we see a lot of roofs too. Some really frighten us.
LET’S EXPLAIN THAT.
Restaurants that do a lot of frying are required to have a kitchen hood system. A kitchen hood system prevents smoke and grease from accumulating in the restaurant and running your customers out the door. When smoke and grease come into contact with each other, and the grease becomes hot enough, it can ignite. This is a grease fire. And grease fires are no fun. Talk to any firefighter who has ever dealt with one, and they will tell you it was particularly difficult. Grease turns to liquid when it is hot, and therefore splashes easily. This causes the fire to spread quickly and often times become out of control.
So, you’re wondering what this has to do with the caving in of your roof? Well, if you have a hood system, you’re getting most of the grease out of the restaurant as planned. But it has to go somewhere. That would be your roof. If you do not have a rooftop grease containment, the grease is sitting on your roof and your roof is likely in early stages of corrosion. Grease is destructive, man.
SO IF YOU LIKE YOUR ROOF, WE SUGGEST INSTALLING A ROOFTOP GREASE CONTAINMENT.
The best way to save your roof is by installing a rooftop grease containment on all of your exhaust fans. This prevents the grease from accumulating on the roof. An effective rooftop grease containment will provide hydrophobic pads, which are designed to shed water and hold onto grease. This way, you won’t have to worry about the rain water accumulating and causing the grease to spill over. If you only have a grease box, the rain water will just add to the volume of the grease and it will eventually spill out onto the roof. ProCo Hood Cleaning will provide you with an adequate system for your business.
It’s not like you can go down to the dollar store and grab one of these. Local health codes require that you have your rooftop grease containment professionally installed so that you can ensure it is done properly and safely. Call ProCo Hood Cleaning today so that we can have a look at your current rooftop grease containment system. We will determine the best route to go from there.
