What do you clean?
We take care of what you see in the kitchen, but more importantly what you do not see from the roof down.. We clean the entire system, starting from the exhaust fan and motor, then down the flue, cleaning the system to bare metal, clean the filter mounts, clean and polish the hood.
Why is cleaning the entire system important?
Hoods and fire protection systems have the most legal requirements of any equipment in the kitchen. The health department is concerned about sanitation; the fire department is worried about fire hazards and an environment agency is often worried about emissions pouring from the ducts.
Most cooking facility fires originate in the cooking area which can quickly spread into the exhaust systems and onto the roof. Keeping a grease-free and fire safe system can protect you from this hazard.
How often does my system need to be cleaned?
Frequency of cleaning depends on many variables, the type of cooking you do and how often the system is used. We schedule your cleaning based on the needs of each location at monthly, quarterly or semi-annually . We constantly review and will suggest changes to your cleaning intervals if necessary.
