Commercial Kitchen Hood Cleaning

One of the greatest causes of fires in a kitchen comes from neglected kitchen exhaust hoods. This is due to the grease build-up that occurs over time. Steel Mountain will bring your kitchen back to regulation standards by providing exceptional exhaust hood cleaning. First, they will steam clean the hood with steam machines that reach temperatures of 330 degrees. Of course, these high temperatures ensure a quality cleaning of bare metal. Then, along with exhaust cleaning, they will clean the exhaust fan, filters and steel exterior.

Steel Mountain prides itself on helping you follow all of the kitchen fire safety rules. This includes the NFPA 96 rule that helps protect commercial cooking operations. In fact, that rule is set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). They are a nonprofit organization formed to keep people safe from fires.

Fire Suppression

When a fire does occur in a commercial kitchen you want to make sure you have the most up-to-date technology helping you. Sprinklers and fire extinguishers are important to have. However, a fire suppression system is superior in fire safety. This system uses advanced wet chemicals and a smart system. Fortunately, it will activate without human input and contain a fire from the moment it starts.

Steel Mountain uses only the best and top fire suppression system brands like Ansul. Their systems will not only extinguish a fire but also prevent a re-flash fire. It covers a fire with a low pH liquid agent that instantly extinguishes a fire and cools the entire area. Moreover, this chemical covers the area to prevent grease or electrical equipment from re-igniting.

Having one of these systems on the premises can literally be a life-saver. It protects property even when there is no one around to use fire extinguishers.

Fire Extinguishers

North Carolina fire regulations require all commercial buildings to have fire extinguishers on the premises and easy to spot. In addition, all employees need training in portable fire extinguisher usage. This OSHA set regulation is another important way to protect your staff, patrons and facility from a fire. Thus, Steel Mountain employees will help you by offering fire extinguisher training.
