Wood Fire Risks In Commercial Kitchens
Commercial Kitchen Wood Fire Risks
Nothing tastes as great as a pizza or entree cooked in a wood burning oven. Crisp crusts and juicy, bronzed meats and veggies are delicious, but if the oven and its chimney or venting system malfunctions the search for tasty food leads to a restaurant disaster. Fire damage traceable to a wood burning oven is a job for the experts at SERVPRO.
Your chef's evening offerings went up in flames, causing fire damage to your Mooresville restaurant. Today's commercial kitchens experiment with the new taste sensations created by solid fuel, such as hardwoods, charcoal, and specialty woods and chips like mesquite, hickory, and fruit woods. The flavors come with a risk in the depths of the wood fired oven. These often rustic, frequently brick and mortar cooking appliances are hard to clean and maintain. Restaurants commonly make a choice to let the fire smolder at the end of the night, citing the difficulty of extinguishing the fire and a preference to keep the interior warm so that the temperature needed for roasting meats and cooking pizzas occurs quickly during the next shift.
Creosote builds up if the oven and chimney remain uncleaned. This coating ignites and sends heat and smoke billowing throughout your restaurant kitchen. Once this occurs the food inside is torched, and the entire facility, including dining areas, need evacuation. You risk business closure for quite some time if the fire damage remains unrestored. The soot and smoke the fire created need extensive cleaning, tasks SERVPRO technicians provide along with deodorization services.
SERVPRO fire damage restoration technicians assess your restaurant's situation after the oven fire, working with specialized contractors to repair the venting system and oven itself. They also use dry or wet cleaning techniques to remove greasy grime from surfaces. Walls and ceilings, other cooking equipment, tables, chairs, tableware and other contents are all part of the overall cleaning plan. Because the characteristics of the soiling make it hard to remove through normal cleaning techniques using the skills of our team makes business sense to get your eatery up and running again.
