Do You Own a VENT A HOOD Exhaust Hood Over Your Stove??

You are sooo right...NFPA 96...the system is clean when you see "Bare Metal". Remember not to ONLY pay attention to what you can see...the real problems occur in the shaft and the fan because of heavy accumulations passing the filters and collecting, this causes a real fire can take only one spark to ignite if not properly maintained...especially if you are dealing with a commercial fan...all the moving parts, belts and so on....friction causes heat all the built up grease is fuel for the if your fan starts squeaking you need to check your belt and possibly grease the bearings do what you can to maintain a fire-safe
