Protect Your Roof From The Hazards Of Grease Damage
A little grease never hurt anyone, right?
Actually, grease can cause significant damage. In addition to being a fire hazard, it can degrade your roof, putting your property, employees and customers at risk. The professionals here at Facilitec West are trained and ready to protect you with the best and latest practices in grease containment.
What is grease containment?
You likely already have at least the bare essentials for grease containment. For example, the grease catch in your kitchen’s exhaust hood. This helps trap the airborne grease as you vent out the air from your kitchen. However, this typically does not get rid of all the grease. Which means grease leaks out onto your roof through the exhaust.
Grease on your roof leads to the deterioration of the roofing material, as well as a host of other unwanted side effects. Rooftop grease containment involves installing the right equipment for preventing grease from spilling out and causing damage to your roof.
Why invest in better grease containment?
You have a grease catch on the hood in your kitchen, so why invest more money in grease containment? The hazards of grease leaking out onto your roof include:
Fall injuries due to a slippery roof.
Insect and vermin infestations.
EPA water code violations.
Voided roof warranties.
Increased fire risk, which can also lead to fire and building code violations.
What are my options?
The grease catch in your upblast kitchen exhaust fan doesn’t catch everything. But often, that is just about the only effort toward grease containment utilized. Unless you have a really high-quality grease catch – like Grease Lock or Omni Rooftop Grease Containment – it’s essential to also include rooftop grease containment solutions such as:
Filtered grease containment units.
No matter what combination of grease containment methods you use, consistent maintenance of them will be essential for their effectiveness.
