Ducts like this eventually lead to accumulation of oil and grease in puddles at the base of the duct. This over time eats away at the sealant in the duct joints and starts to leak out into the space around it.


This in turn attracts pest like rats and mice creating and unsanitary environment

for work to be conducted. Moreover, it leaves everlasting damage on the space if left unchecked it will eventually become a huge nightmare to handle and is very costly to solve. The damage left behind by neglected ducts is immeasurable and should not be taken lightly.


The oil stains and damages everything on its way down and eventually the system becomes heavily compromised . One of the biggest risk is when the oil starts leaking onto the electrical devices creating numerous fire hazards throughout the kitchen.


Placing drip pans to collect the dripping oil serves as a minor solution to a major problem. If not cleaned and sealed properly the amount of grease escaping from the system would be a major fire risk to the establishment as seen below.
