The Importance of Hood Vents in Restaurants
By law, all restaurants are required to have hood vents in their kitchens. In fact, hood exhaust systems are required in any commercial kitchen. Further, the law stipulates that hoods must be cleaned and well maintained (insurance providers and fire marshals are also picky about this). When hiring a company for professional restaurant hood installation in Pittsburgh, it’s advised that you consider the long-term maintenance of your exhaust system.

What Do Hood Vents Do?
Restaurant hood exhaust systems are designed to collect the excessive grease and grime that are generated by restaurant grills, friars, saute burners and other restaurant cooking equipment. Without an exhaust system above your cooking stations, many toxic particulates would permeate the kitchen’s air and possibly spread out to the dining room, becoming a serious health risk for your employees and patrons.
Can I Have My Kitchen Crew Clean My Hoods?
Whether open or close, kitchen workers have plenty to keep them busy. During the day, truck deliveries have to be inventoried and put away; food preparation has to be done for the line cooks, and stations have to be set up; all of this and more in addition to cooking guests’ orders as they come in and making sure the dish station is caught up.
Closing a restaurant is no small task. Floors have to be washed with industrial strength cleaners; walls have to be scrubbed; every dish, pot, pan, utensil, and a piece of silverware has to be washed and put away, food has to be weighed, wrapped, labeled and put away; stations have to be broken down and cleaned. Since time is so hard to come by, many managers will have their kitchen workers run their hoods through the dish machine. However, your dishwasher cannot remove all the grime on the hoods, and that grime is highly flammable if heated.
