NFPA96 and frequency of cleaning
The frequency of your cleaning is predetermined by the standards set by NFPA96 fire code. This is governed and enforced by your local AHJ – your fire inspector, health inspector and your insurance broker.
Excerpt from NFPA 96 (2011) 11.6.1
Upon inspection, if the exhaust system is found to be contaminated with deposits from grease-laden vapours, the contaminated portions of the exhaust system shall be cleaned by a properly trained, qualified and certified person(s) acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction.
Table 11.4 – Exhaust System Inspection Schedule – Type of Volume of Cooking and Frequency.
- Monthly – Systems serving solid fuel cooking operations.
- Quarterly – Systems serving high-volume cooking operations such as 24-hour cooking, charbroiling, or wok cooking.
- Semi-annually – Systems serving moderate-volume cooking operations.
- Annually – Systems serving low=volume cooking operations, such as churches, day camps, seasonal businesses, or senior centres.
