WHY IKECA CERTIFICATION MATTERS
The International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association, or simply IKECA, is a non-profit organization accredited by ANSI as a standards developer for the kitchen h cleaning industry. IKECA members are required to adhere to the strict cleaning & inspection standards in the industry found in NFPA-96, the International Mechanical Code and International Fire Code. IKECA members are also required to attend IKECA educational seminars on hood cleaning twice annually to earn education credits and stay up to date with current codes and specifications!

WHAT IF I USE A NON-CERTIFIED HOOD CLEANING COMPANY?
As we all know, properly certified and trained companies in all industries are usually a bit more expensive than their non-certified counterparts. While we can understand the temptation of short-term money savings (which you will learn is just an illusion), using a non-certified restaurant hood cleaning company will cost you money in the long term and leave you vulnerable to kitchen exhaust grease fires. These non-certified companies are able to charge absurdly low prices because they do not actually clean the entire system! Most simply clean where they can easily reach. This usually only includes the exterior and interior of the hood and filters. Rarely, they will attempt to clean up the mouth of the duct to as far as their arm can reach, but more often than not this is not the case. We find that they do not remove any grease from the rooftop fan, the duct work, and especially not any horizontal duct work which is the most difficult to clean. While the hood may look clean and shiny at floor level, what lurks behind the filters and in the duct work is a grease fire waiting to happen.
