We will guarantee your satisfaction and perform the job correctly. Over time, kitchen exhaust hoods, ducts, and fans will collect grease which will restrict air flow, reducing overall efficiency of the system as well as become an extreme fire hazard. The new fire code does not reference cleaning frequency, it references inspection frequency and subsequent cleaning. Should your exhaust system have greater than .002 inches of grease in your duct, plenum, or fan, the requirement for a cleaning comes into effect. Take solace that when your exhaust is cleaned right, it can actually save you money as it will reduce the wear and tare on your equipment, but also save energy costs as your system will run more efficiently. Also, you will avoid fires and the reputation of an under-cleaned cooking area. Fines from the fire department or city health inspector, the catastrophe of a fire, and potentially an unpaid insurance claim, can be avoided. Don’t be fooled, restaurant fires are extremely serious let alone imminent if your exhaust system has not been cleaned properly. The licensed and certified exhaust cleaning technicians from Tri State Hood and Duct will clean your entire kitchen exhaust system down to bare metal, removing your fire hazard and leaving your kitchen immaculate.
