Rooftop Grease Containment

Greensboro, North Carolina

Exhaust fan discharge has caused roof damage in over 80% of food processing facilities.

The key to having a roof that lasts is to limit exposure to anything other than normal weather conditions. Okay, so it’s no longer a secret. What we’re getting at here is that the oil filtered out by your hood system has to go somewhere, and that somewhere is your roof.

Grease buildup is not only a big fire hazard, but it may also cause your roof to cave in if it is not properly contained. That is why, in the Greensboro, North Carolina area, Greensboro Hood Cleaning offers Rooftop grease containment. For additional information about our services, please see our About page.

Rooftop grease containment and it’s uses

At Greensboro Hood Cleaning we prefer to think of restaurant grease as a massive (greasy) monster from which you can’t get away. It’s there if it isn’t here, and it’s very difficult to get rid of once it’s there. That is, unless you contact us. Exhaust fans are used to keep oil vapors out of your restaurant’s kitchen. If it doesn’t end up in the restaurant, it’ll have to go somewhere else. That’s your rooftop, by the way. While we’d like to think that’s all well and wonderful, it isn’t unless you have proper grease containment on your rooftop.

Without a rooftop grease containment system, a restaurant runs the risk of a fire or catastrophic damage to their building’s roof. Because grease is acidic, a buildup of it on your roof might cause it to decay. That does not appear to be a fun situation for a growing food business.

So how can you prevent roof deterioration?

Installing rooftop grease containment on all of your exhaust fans is the most effective approach to keep grease from damaging your roof. Excess grease will be collected from your system by a correctly built grease containment. Rainwater can also drain off without causing damage to your roof.

Hydrophobic pads, which are designed to shed water while holding onto grease, will be prevented by an adequate rooftop grease containment system. Without these pads, the rain water and grease will eventually pour over the roof if you simply have a grease box to catch grease.

We will inspect the system on a regular basis, alert you to any potential hazards, and take appropriate action if necessary. We offer, install, and maintain effective roof grease protection systems. It’s a very low-cost strategy to safeguard your property.
