Restaurant Vent Hood Cleaning
Every commercial kitchen should receive regular vent hood cleaning services. Certain local codes actually require that this is done in commercial kitchens, such as those found in schools, hospitals, churches, restaurants and other places. When you start looking for someone to help with your restaurant vent hood cleaning needs, we hope that you’ll consider using our services at Kansas City Hood Cleaning. The grease is supposed to go into the hood and go out through the filters and eventually go out through the grease duct into the air. In some cases, it goes into a grease try or some other type of grease capturing system. Keeping every component clean is important and should not be overlooked. If it is then you may be creating a dangerous environment for both your workers and your customers.
Our Process for Cleaning Your Restaurant Hood
We begin our process by first placing plastic over everything in the kitchen area that we are cleaning. There is a plastic funnel placed underneath the hood that drains the buildup removed from the system. This prevents the grease from being deposited in the floor drain. We will clean up the hood and polish it. All ducts, vertical and horizontal are thoroughly cleaned. Exhaust fans are cleaned and the floor is mopped, in case any grease has dripped on it. Finally, a sticker is placed on the equipment that indicates that it was professionally serviced and when it was last serviced.

Why Rely on a Professional Hood Cleaning Service

This is because they may not be fully aware of all the components that need to be cleaned and therefore may miss some areas.
