Over 80% of food industry facilities have roof deterioration due to exhaust fan discharge
The secret to having a long lasting roof is to minimize exposure to anything other than normal weather elements. Okay, it's not really a secret now. What we're getting at here, is that grease that your hood system is filtering out has to go somewhere--and that would be your roof.
Not only is the accumulation of grease a major fire hazard but it can result in the caving in of your roof if not adequately contained. That’s why Seattle Hood Cleaning Pros offers Rooftop grease containment in the Seattle, Washington area. You can also visit our About page to know more about our services.
Rooftop grease containment and it's uses
We like to imagine restaurant grease as this big (greasy) monster that you can’t escape from. If it’s not here, it’s there, and once it’s there, its damn hard to get rid of. Unless you call us, that is. Exhaust fans are designed to eliminate grease vapors from invading your kitchen and restaurant. But if it doesn’t end up in the restaurant…then it must go somewhere. That would be your rooftop. While we’d like to think that’s all fine and dandy, it’s not, unless you have an appropriate rooftop grease containment.
A restaurant without a rooftop grease containment risk fire or serious damage to the roof of their building. Since grease is acidic, continued build-up of it can cause your roof to deteriorate. That does not sound like it would be fun for a thriving food business.
So how can you prevent roof deterioration?
The best way to prevent grease from damaging your roof is to install rooftop grease containment on all of your exhaust fans. A properly designed grease containment will collect excess grease from your system. It also allows rain water to drain off without damaging your roof.
An effective rooftop grease containment will prevent hydrophobic pads, which are designed to shed water and hold onto grease. If you only have a grease box to catch grease without these pads, the rain water and grease will eventually spill onto the roof.
Seattle Hood Cleaning Pros offers rooftop cleaning services as well as the installation of a rooftop grease containment. We will always inspect the system, inform you of any hazards and address the situation as needed. We sell, install and maintain efficient systems that are designed to protect your roof from expensive repairs caused by rooftop grease. It is truly an inexpensive way to protect your roof.
