NFPA 96 & Its Importance NFPA 96 sets the standard for the ventilation and fire protection of commercial cooking operations. Compliance with these standards is critical for:

  • Regular mandated inspections and cleanings

  • Ensuring the safety of patients, staff, and hospital infrastructure

  • Maintaining operational efficiency and equipment longevity

  • Upholding and enhancing the hospital's reputation

  • Compliance with the Department of Health (DOH) and The Joint Commission (TJC) requirements

Why Regular Hood Cleaning? Regular cleaning of your kitchen hood and exhaust system significantly reduces fire risks and promotes operational efficiency. It also plays a vital role in maintaining your hospital’s reputation for safety and compliance.

Our Comprehensive Cleaning Process Our process includes before and after photos of all system components to ensure transparency and accountability:

  1. System Inspection and Area Preparation: Before cleaning begins, we inspect the exhaust system and prepare the work area, documenting everything with a pre-service walk-through video.

  2. Exhaust System Shutdown and Appliance Safety: We shut off the exhaust fan and all stove and appliance pilot lights and gas valves to ensure a safe cleaning environment.

  3. Manual Cleaning and Grease Removal: Our technicians manually scrape problem areas, construct custom funnels to contain waste, and use high-quality degreasers to thoroughly clean each component.

  4. Detailed Finishing Touches: After cleaning, we polish the hood and interiors, reinstall filters, and conduct a final inspection to ensure optimal operation.

  5. Documentation and Compliance: We provide a full-service report, post-service walk-through video, and apply the necessary certification sticker to demonstrate compliance with NFPA 96 standards.
