Fire Codes

Liability and Safety

By law, kitchen exhaust cleaning is required for virtually every commercial cooking establishment in the United States. Kitchen grease exhaust cleaning is required by the Fire Marshals, Health Inspectors and Insurance Companies. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 96 standard) requires commercial kitchens exhaust systems to be cleaned by a properly trained, qualified and certified person(s).

We are Washington State's Leading Certified Hood Cleaning Company. In Washington State, the Fire Marshal follows the NFPA 96 Standards as part of the Fire code. If you violate the code by using a non-certified kitchen exhaust cleaning company, it can be considered to be negligence on your part. If one of your businesses ever has a fire that originates in the kitchen exhaust system, it could be an issue in getting your insurance company to pay for the repairs. Before you consider using a non-certified company, think about the liability.
