Kitchen Hood and Exhaust Cleaning


Every year approximately 5,000 restaurant fires are reported with total property losses reaching $80 million. These fires originate in the cooking area, which reach the exhaust system and onto the roof where the fire can quickly spread. Grease fires burn at approximately 1400 degrees. With this heat, fire spreads very rapidly. Keeping a grease-free and fire-safe kitchen exhaust system can protect your restaurant from fire hazards.

Regular and thorough maintenance of the hood and exhaust system will help to ensure a secure environment for cooking. A system that is safely working at ultimate performance will lead to a working environment that’s cooler, cleaner and more productive for the staff. We understand the importance of a properly maintained kitchen exhaust system and what it means to your business. We also help make sure you’re always in compliance with the latest industry regulations.

We ensure compliance with all applicable fire and health codes. We steam/hand clean the entire hood and duct system from top to bottom. Every part of the system including the exhaust fan is cleaned to bare metal in accordance with IKECA (International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaners Association) and NFPA 96 Standards for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection.


Upon initial thorough inspection of your location, our inspectors will identify any deficient items that need to be fixed in order to bring your kitchen exhaust system up to compliance with NFPA 96 Fire Code standards. Some of these deficient items include broken/ cracked electrical flex conduit, broken or missing hinge kits, installation of access doors in order to gain full access of the duct system, fan access plugs that allow us to fully clean the blades of your exhaust fans, etc. Read more by clicking on the links below:
