While you are cooking, heat, smoke, and grease laden vapors are pulled out of your restaurant through your kitchen exhaust system. This system directs the vapors into your hood, through your vent hood filters, and into duct work traveling through your building to your exhaust fan on the roof or where it can safely exit your building. The vapors contain flammable residue including grease and oils which can provide fuel for a fire. Due to the high heat produced by a grease fire, these fires can quickly spread into the attic and spaces in your building not protected by fire suppression systems, resulting in catastrophic damage. While no system or process can eliminate the risk of fire, proper kitchen exhaust cleaning eliminates the fuel load and keeps your system maintained such that any fire that may occur can be properly contained and extinguished without risking life and property. The owner of a kitchen exhaust system has the legal responsibility to ensure the exhaust system is safe. By selecting HOODZ as your cleaning provider, you can be certain you have made the best decision for your facility, your employees, and your customers. Kitchen fires will occur, but the resulting damage is often dependent on the quality and competency of the cleaning provider you have selected. Our team of trained and certified technicians clean your entire system and document our cleaning with photographic evidence to ensure that your exhaust system is properly maintained. Our experts will recommend proper cleaning frequencies using specialized tools and equipment to measure the level of flammable residue in your systems, and report back to you on any conditions that may compromise the safe operation of the kitchen exhaust system in your facility.
When you cook, the smoke, heat, and grease vapors disappear into the ductwork in your attic and roof areas. The danger of collected flammable is invisible from looking at your hood system, and we make those invisible areas easy for you to see though our picture perfect photo documentation system. A shiny hood in the kitchen after cleaning does not mean those hard to reach and even harder to see areas have been properly cleaned. At HOODZ, we make certain that every area of your system is accessed so you can trust that the work we promise is always the work that we provide.
HOODZ is different from many other providers in that we pride ourselves in cleaning the entire system every service. While many companies may claim to provide the same level of quality, we take the extra steps to ensure that from the initial inspection of your system our clients are assured of a complete cleaning service including the hood, all of the connecting ductwork, as well as the fan unit or pollution control unit that carries those unwanted vapors out of your facility.
By trusting the professional exhaust system technicians at HOODZ, you are ensuring that your system is maintained to mitigate the risk of fire in your facility, and reduce the severity of damage should a kitchen fire occur.
