Why is Hood Cleaning Important?
A clean vent hood is important for any restaurant, ensuring it meets the necessary safety and fire regulations. Your vent hood must be compliant with NFPA-96 and local fire standards, which is a major consideration when deciding to schedule regular cleaning service. We help you make sure your restaurant kitchen is in compliance with industry regulations. The state of a restaurant hood also impacts the overall performance and health of your kitchen’s exhaust system. A clean exhaust hood system makes all the difference, which you’ll notice immediately.
Dangers of a Neglected Hood System
A fire is one of the major dangers of a dirty vent hood that has a buildup of grease and oil. Major buildups of grease will render any fire protection systems inefficient. Kitchen fires often start on cooking equipment and then flare up into the exhaust system. Every year there is an estimated $164 million in property damage as a direct result of structure fires at food establishments. Grease buildup can also cause structural damages to your facility, including damaging your roof, which can lead to costly repairs.
Our hood cleaning service includes a vacuum, scrub, power wash, and a polish to ensure your hood is in top shape. Typically you can expect an average of three to six hours for restaurant hood cleaning services. An estimated timeframe depends on your individual restaurant, including the size and condition of the hood system. Some larger and more complex kitchen exhaust systems may take days to clean completely. Systems where the fans and ducts have not been cleaned properly or regularly will also take time to thoroughly deep clean. Under NFPA-96 regulations, the time range commercial kitchen facilities should have their systems cleaned is between once per month to once a year.
