FIREPROOFING NYC ROOFTOPS – GREASY ROOFS A COMMON CAUSE OF RESTAURANT AND BUILDING FIRES
GREASY ROOFS A COMMON CAUSE OF RESTAURANT AND BUILDING FIRES
Most times people assume that NYC Restaurant Fires are caused by incidents starting in the kitchen. High heat and an ignition source are of course what makes commercial cooking in NYC so dangerous and highly regulated. However many
times the cause of a restaurant fire is due to grease particles and residue in the ducts. This could stem from a lack of proper cleaning and maintenance of the grease traps, duct work and roof top.
Having a plan and schedule for insuring that the roof of your building is properly cleared of these dangerous agitants is sometimes overlooked. Oil, grease, dirt, and weather can diminish over time the integrity of your roof ducts and exhaust systems. Master Fire Mechanical is an experienced licensed fire protection services contractor that will inspect, recommend and deploy a roofing membrane that is suited for New York City commercial kitchens and NYC restaurant
use. New York Restaurant Owners need to be aware that they need to protect the building which they inhabit, not only in the kitchen and dining areas, but exteriorly as well against roofing hazards.
The problem is that many fires start over improperly maintained commercial kitchen equipment and then quickly accelerate towards the roof through the ductwork by following the oxygen via the exhaust vent..If the grease has over time
leaked onto the rooftop, the entire building may be succeptible to fire damage putting lives in danger.
Solutions exist that are safe, easy and able to be simply washed away after dissolving any residue and build-up from animal fats, cooking oil, grease and other by-products of the cooking process. Call Master fire Mechanical about PVC
roofing or other solutions that protect NYC property owners from fire damage and business from liability.
