About this video:
Commercial property inspectors should assess the floor, ceiling, and wall finishes in a kitchen space. The finishes are part of fire safety. Think of the ceiling, walls, and floors as the last non-flammable element in the fire envelope. Additionally, ceilings and walls should have a non-porous, smooth, washable surface Materials and finishes deemed acceptable may vary based on the space (i.e., cooking area [susceptible to high heat] vs. food prep area vs. food storage area). Additionally, acceptable finishes are set by the FDA and typically by the local health department/AHJ.
