Why clean your restaurant hood exhaust system?
Restaurant cooking grease travels into the hood, through the hood filters and into ductwork that leads to an exhaust fan on the roof. Grease caught in the hood, filters, ducts and fan is a fuel that can ignite with exposure to spark or flame from the kitchen cooking line. This can start a fire capable of spreading in seconds and causing severe damage and loss of life. The owner of the restaurant kitchen hood exhaust system has the responsibility to ensure the system is safe and operational.
Having your exhaust system cleaned regularly is not only for the safety of your customers, employees, and your building: it’s also mandated by law.
- Reduce the risk of fire.
- Maintain proper airflow reducing heat and smoke.
- Stay compliant with local fire codes.
- Reduce wear & tear on expensive exhaust fan motors and belts.
- Safe environment for employees and patrons.
What we do
At HoodFlo, we clean kitchen exhaust systems to bare metal in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association’s restaurant vent hood cleaning code requirements (NFPA 96 standards). We achieve this standard by using highly trained technicians; specialized cleaning methodologies and innovative equipment. This restaurant hood exhaust cleaning service is our most comprehensive and involves cleaning the entire exhaust system including hoods, ducts, fans, vents and other grease removal devices.
For this service, we use two to three qualified technicians who clean the exhaust system concurrently: a roof technician (upper portion of exhaust system); a duct work technician and a hood technician (lower portion of exhaust system). Upon completion of this service, the client will receive (emailed) before and after photos of the cleaning areas and a certification label will be affixed to the exterior of the hood as testament to a safer and more efficient exhaust system.
