Over time grease builds up within the ductwork and becomes a massive fire hazard.

The TR19 Grease is a document that is specifically focused on fire risk management of grease accumulation within kitchen extraction systems.

Government statistics for 2015/16 showed over 1100 fires in retail catering establishments.
