Rooftop Grease Containment

Why is rooftop grease/oil containment needed?

Keeping grease and oil off a commercial roof is crucial for several reasons:

Fire Hazard Mitigation:

  • Grease and oils can be highly flammable. Preventing the buildup helps to mitigate the risk of fire, protecting the property and occupants.

Structural Integrity:

  • Over time grease and oil can cause degradation of the roofing material and the substrate. This can lead to weakening of the roof and to potential water leaks.

Environmental Compliance:

  • Runoff from commercial roofs can contaminate the surrounding environment, including stormwater systems. This can lead to Complinace issues resulting in fines or penalties.

Prevention of Pest Infestation:

  • Accumulated grease and oil can attract rodents, birds and insects. These pests can cause additional damage to the roof structure and find their way into the building.

Avoidance of Slip Hazards:

  • A greasy roof surface can become slippery, creating a safety hazard for maintenance personnel or anyone accessing the roof. eliminating or reducing the amount of grease or oil on the roof minimizes the risk of slips and falls.

Long-Term Cost Savings:

  • Proactive maintence and preventing grease and oil buildup can contribute to the longevity of the roof. Regular cleaning and inspection can identify issues early, allowing for timely repairs, avoiding more extensive and costly damage.

In summary, keeping grease and oil off a commercial roof is essential for fire safety, structural integrity, environmental compliance, HVAC system efficiency, pest prevention, safety, and overall cost-effectiveness. Regular inspections and maintenance are key components of a comprehensive strategy to ensure the longevity and performance of commercial roofing systems.
