At Your Service

The exhaust system is much more than what you see inside the hood in the kitchen. Proper cleaning entails cleaning the motor and ducts on the roof, for example, using a combination of chemicals, scraping and steam washing. Great care must also be given to clean yet not offset the fire suppression system (e.g., fuselinks). Because of these conditions, NFPA guidelines stipulate that an “outside, certified provider shall clean the system”.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why should I regularly service my kitchen hoods?

Properly maintaining your kitchen exhaust system will greatly reduce or even eliminate the possibility of grease fires in the exhaust system. Additionally, the Health Department, Fire Departments, Landlords/Property Managers and Insurers all require you frequently service your systems.

How often should the hoods in our restaurants be serviced?

According to NFPA-96 Standard (Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations), the following schedule shall be followed:

  • Non-regular use systems (e.g., seasonal operations) –¬†ANNUALLY
  • Low-volume systems (e.g., pizza oven, pasta cooker) – SEMI-ANNUALLY
  • Mid/High-volume systems (e.g., fryer, wok, grill) –¬†QUARTERLY
  • Systems utilizing solid fuel (e.g., wood, charcoal) –¬†MONTHLY
I have my restaurant workers clean the inside of the hoods...why should I have you come and do it instead?

It is not reasonable to expect your restaurant workers to know what parts of the exhaust system need to be cleaned and how to clean them without damaging the system or nearby systems.
