Focusing on ensuring that your commercial kitchen is properly cleaned every day helps to keep operations running efficiently and productively. But if you’re the owner or manager of a restaurant, banquet hall, or any other facility with a commercial kitchen, you’ve got to focus on more than just the kitchen.
The roof of your building can get extremely dirty due to grease and oil that travel to the roof via the ventilation fans. This can lead to environmental factors, roof damage, and even dangerous fires. To ensure safety and prolong the life of your building’s roof, you need a rooftop containment system, along with periodic roof cleaning.
Reasons You Need a Rooftop Containment System
Provide Protection For Your Roof
A rooftop containment system is designed to keep grease, fat, and oils off of the roof. The buildup of grease would otherwise result in structural damage to the roof over time, causing them to soften and even dissolve. Cracking, leaks, and structural damage to the roof compromise your whole establishment.
Reduce the Risk of Fire
Anything from a single spark to a lightning bolt can easily ignite a grease fire on your roof, which can quickly spread and ultimately destroy the building and put lives at risk.
Improves Health and Safety
Uncontained rooftop grease can also cause environmental problems by mixing with storm runoff and causing water pollution, as well as attracting insects and rodents. Additionally, a damaged roof or one with many areas of grease buildup is extremely unsafe for maintenance workers.
It’s the Law!
Lastly, and most importantly, it’s the law to have a rooftop containment system if you have a restaurant, banquet hall, or any other facility with a commercial kitchen.
Failing to address these safety and environmental issues can cause owners to face fines, rooftop damage and worst of all, the risk of a fire. For these reasons, a rooftop containment system is a necessary investment for all commercial restaurant owners.
Commercial roof cleaning services also help to improve the look and life of a roof by removing mold, mildew, lichen, algae, black streaks, and other imperfections, resulting in a professional and well-maintained look for your property.
