• Do you test fire systems or sub them out?

    The COMSoP does not include the inspection of fire suppression systems. Most inspectors inventory and observe the installed systems and will bring experts in if the client is looking for more.

  • Do most of you inspect kitchen cooking equipment when inspecting restaurants?

    The ventilation system should be a part of the inspection. It is something that most commercial inspectors should be familiar with. Most of the cooking equipment can be pretty complicated. I have always recommended that my clients bring in their chefs or an appliance specialist. There is an excellent article available to members on Commercial Hoods and Exhausts on the ccpia.org site.
