Kitchen Hood & Exhaust Cleaning

Kitchen exhaust cleaning is required by law for virtually every commercial cooking establishment. Restaurants, hospitals, hotels, employee cafeterias and other food-service locations that have a “hood” and ductwork over the stove to exhaust smoke, steam, and fumes out of the building. These exhaust gases leave a residue on the inside of the ductwork. This is usually a grease residue of some sort, depending on the type of cooking.

Char grills commonly leave heavy black grease. Chinese cooking normally deposits a sticky or rubbery residue. When a charcoal or wood-burning stove is in use soot and ash residue builds up in the ductwork. Dishwashers leave heavy moist deposits. When the build-up of grease becomes heavy, a fire hazard exists. Approximately one out of three restaurant fires are caused by grease.
