Grease Filter Exchange

Averus is there for you every step of the way including our Grease Filter Exchange Program.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, most fires in commercial kitchens are caused by cooking flames that flare up and penetrate your filters where grease deposits have accumulated.

Averus’s “Grease Filter Exchange Service” will remove your grease-laden filters and replace them with 18 gauge, UL listed, “Grease Baffle Type Filters” that meet local codes and National Fire Protection # 96 standards.

The grease filters within your kitchen exhaust system exist to reduce the amount of vaporized grease that ends up within your exhaust system ducts, where it can cause a flash fire. Clean filters can trap up to 70-80 percent of the grease passing through them. But if your filters are already saturated with grease, they can’t do their job properly and you will end up with reduced efficiency of your system and a dangerous grease accumulation right above your cooking appliances.

Investing in regular grease filter replacement and cleaning will help reduce your risk of fire and avoid its potentially devastating impact on your business. Averus offers a quick, convenient, affordable filter exchange program that lets you take the hassle out of keeping up with grease filter maintenance.

When your grease filters are cleaned on a regular frequency using our grease filter exchange service, your grease exhaust system will be protected from major fire damage.

It is critical that your business’s fire alarm systems are functioning properly. Fire alarm systems provide early warning that can prevent tragedy and automatically place fire calls in case of an emergency. This not only ensures the safety of you and your customers, but ensures minimal damage in the event of a fire. Averus inspects your system to comply with NFPA 72 plus all state and local fire codes.


Sprinkler Systems

In those first moments of a fire before help arrives, a sprinkler system can prevent a fire from getting out of control. It also becomes the first line of defense when a building is unattended. Regular maintenance, inspection and pressure testing are essential to help ensure a sprinkler system operates properly when needed. Averus takes care of all the details, inspecting sprinkler systems in accordance with manufacturer guidelines, NFPA 13, NFPA 25 and all state and local codes.


Backflow Prevention Assemblies

Many businesses don’t realize the importance of properly maintaining and inspecting their backflow prevention assembly. If not tested regularly, a backflow assembly malfunction could contaminate your local water supply, leaving you vulnerable to unnecessary liability. Averus performs routine testing to ensure you comply with all state and local codes.
