FAQ - Why Become a GreaseBuster?
NFPA 96 dictates how often different types of cooking operations must be cleaned by certified technicians. Some jurisdictions will require more frequent cleanings, but NFPA 96 always provides the baseline. Fire Marshals enforce NFPA 96 with inspections, and a restaurant will be shut down or required to get emergency service if they are not in compliance. Landlords and insurance companies have vested interests ensuring their tenants and clients are in NFPA 96 compliance and require proof of cleanings. Also, all franchise agreements for food concepts require the franchisee to abide by all relevant fire codes.
