Commercial Kitchen Hood and Duct Cleaning
Hood & duct cleaning is the process of removing grease that has accumulated inside the ducts, hoods, fans and vents of exhaust systems of commercial kitchens. Left uncleaned, kitchen exhaust systems eventually accumulate enough grease to become extreme fire hazards. Exhaust systems must be inspected regularly, at intervals consistent with usage, to determine whether or not cleaning is needed before a dangerous amount of grease accumulates.
Benefits of Kitchen Hood and Duct Cleaning
Some of the benefits from professionally cleaning your commercial kitchen exhaust are decreased risk of fire, better ventilation for smoke, odor removal, improved government inspection ratings, higher energy savings, cleaner working environment and minimized product contamination.
Cal Counties Fire Protection clean kitchen hood and duct systems which is required semi-annually. We use a scrape and scrub method…. no heavy equipment, no closure of other areas of kitchen. We secure the area with tarps so none of the residue gets on any appliances etc., and our technicians get up into the hoods with a degreasing solution and actually scrape the grease off the sides of the duct, and then wipe down with degreaser afterwards. We also get up on the roof and clean off the fan motor that also gets caked up with grease. This allows for the ventilation to be effective. During this time we are soaking the hood screens with degreaser and hot water soap solution. When the rest of the cleaning is complete, we scrub down the screens and wipe them clean as well. The service is to aid in preventing grease fires in the kitchen area. We certify the hood and duct after completion.
