FAQ’s About Commercial Kitchen Hood Exhaust Cleaning Tucson, Arizona
Many commercial kitchen owners and general managers aren’t aware of their obligations when it comes to properly maintaining their commercial kitchen hood exhaust systems. Some think they can just clean the hood area and attach a certificate of cleaning. In fact many companies often do exactly that. Nothing can be further from true. Don’t be one of the statistics; and find out when you have a fire, the company you have wasn’t doing their job.
You Have a Life Safety Obligation
As the owner or manager of a commercial kitchen, you should know that you are required to keep the hood; filters, fan, and all associated horizontal and vertical ductwork clean and compliant with NFPA Codes. You have to protect your kitchen from flash fires and have a safe work environment for your staff. You’re 100% responsible for the inspection, testing, maintenance, and cleanliness of all fire protection systems and all related equipment in your commercial kitchen.

When should My Commercial Kitchen Exhaust System Be Cleaned?
It depends on how much grease residue goes into your hood system. Fast food kitchens and others that fry, and broil frequently require much more frequent cleaning. The kitchen equipment/ appliances generate the grease. Add into that the volume of cooking and hours of operation a facility is open. Generally it’s more common for restaurants being serviced and cleaned every 3 months. We have a complete listing on our website to help determine cleaning frequency. We can also come out for an “Inspection” to further determine cleaning rotations; this is an excellent way to go because it provides optimal service for a reasonable cost.
What If My Exhaust System Doesn’t Have The Correct Hood Filters?
No worry if your commercial kitchen needs new hood filters or access panels, we have them and can install them. We will follow NFPA Code 96 for the correct filters and access doors.
