Fats, oils and grease (FOG) originate from food products such as butter, lard, vegetable oils, animal fats, meats, sauces and dairy products. They are commonly generated during the preparation of food containing these products, and are found in food establishments such as restaurants, pubs, cafes, etc.
Why are FOG’s a problem?
The biggest concern is that they are extremely flammable and can cause hazardous blockages in your kitchen canopy, exhaust and ducts. In order to maintain health, fire and insurance regulations you need to have these blockages removed and cleaned thoroughly, regularly.
Who is responsible for removing FOG blockages and build-ups?
Quite simply, you the business owner are responsible. In order to comply with heath and fire regulations you will have regular maintenance standards that you have to meet. Your insurance will most likely have this listed as a requirement to your plan as well, and you need to ensure you are maintaining it per each of their standards.
How do I get FOG removed and cleaned from my kitchen?
Hire a professional cleaner that specialises in the removal of fat, oil and grease residue in commercial kitchens. They will scrape, scrub, clean and wash away all of that hazardous build up for you.
