How to Select A Kitchen Exhaust Hood Cleaning Company in Sahuarita, AZ
Cleaning your Kitchen Exhaust Hood System is a very important service that needs to be done in your facility. It is also something that needs to be done regularly but it is often overlooked. Kitchen Exhaust cleaning is essential in maintaining a safe working environment. If you want to prolong the life of your exhaust system and ensure that your facility is safe from a potential fire you must clean your exhaust system regularly. Do not ignore the potential catastrophic consequences of skipping services or trying saving money. When searching for a provider there are a couple of important things to consider.
Insurance Coverage (Liability and Workman’s Comp Insurance)
A certified and professional company will have 1 to 5 million dollars in liability insurance. CRC maintains 5 million dollars of insurance coverage. This is one of the very first questions that should be asked, is there insurance coverage, and how much. Required by NFPA 96 Code once your provider has completed the service they must apply onto the hood or system “stickers” stating the date the system was cleaned. This along with the Service Report holds the company liable if the hood or system does catch fire. It also covers your equipment and your system in the event that any damage occurs during regular services. The amount of the insurance that the company carries is very important. The workman’s comp insurance is to cover the company’s technicians in case they are injured while working in your facility, or restaurant.
All work must be documented and certified by the company. Many departments and companies such as the local fire departments, health departments and insurance companies require documentation that there is regular maintenance occurring in your facility so it may operate efficiently and safely. Besides the sticker, you should be receiving an invoice and a Service Report form stating what work was performed. More reputable companies will offer photo documentation of the service showing before and after pictures, most often this is upon request only.
Any highly regarded company will be able to provide you with satisfactory service. A good reputation is usually the deciding factor for most when deciding on a provider. Positive word of mouth feedback and an honest client list are usually good signs whether or not a provider will be able to meet your expectations.
Always obtain multiple bids to make sure the market value of your service is true. Remember this is going to be a long term relationship you will be creating. With all this in mind and some research, choosing a kitchen exhaust cleaning company will be an easier decision.
