Even if you follow the healthiest possible menu, cooking produces airborne fat, oil and grease which result in the formation of grease deposits on the inside of your school’s kitchen extract ductwork. These are an unseen but very real fire hazard. Assessors tell us that if a kitchen fire that reaches the extract ductwork, it can be made much worse by grease deposits, which will accelerate the fire and spread it to other parts of the building. Not only can this pose a very real threat to life; having greasy extract ductwork can also compromise your buildings insurance.
