Why Choose Flue Steam for Kitchen Exhaust Hood Cleaning Burbank CA

August 20, 2013

Kitchen Exhaust CleaningWhen it comes to the safety of your commercial kitchen, naturally you don’t want to take any chances. A fire in your exhaust system could shut you down for weeks or even months, depending on the severity of the resulting damage. This will be very costly in terms of lost revenue as well as damage to your reputation and brand name. Fortunately, you can reduce the risk of fire in your kitchen exhaust system with regular kitchen exhaust hood cleaning Burbank CA. Here’s why you should trust Flue Steam to provide this service for you.

We Are an IKECA Member

The fact that we are a member of IKECA (International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association) demonstrates Flue Steam’s commitment to quality and excellence in exhaust system cleaning. Our technicians have completed IKECA courses relating to various industry topics, which equips them with the knowledge and training needed to clean your hoods and ducts according to best industry practices.

We Offer Hand Scraping and Steam Cleaning

At Flue Steam, we can offer our customers an excellent balance of quality cleaning and value because we offer both hand scraping and steam cleaning services. When used together, these two services can create a very affordable plan for achieving safe kitchen conditions. Hand scraping is best for kitchen exhaust hood cleaning Burbank CA because the exhaust hood is usually heaviest hit by grease deposits. You can get it hand scraped frequently at a reasonable price. Steam cleaning is best reserved for deep cleanings several times per year, to reach into the nooks and crannies of the exhaust ducts where grease build up occurs more slowly.

We Can Help You Schedule Cleanings for Maximum Efficiency

While all commercial kitchens are required to get kitchen exhaust hood cleaning Burbank CA, different kitchens will require cleaning at different intervals, depending on how fast grease builds up in their system. The primary factors affecting the speed of grease build up are the type and volume of food prepared and the method of cooking. Naturally kitchens that fry lots of food will require more cleaning than those that specialize in raw foods or vegetarian dishes. In order to make sure you don’t spend money on unnecessary cleanings, Flue Steam will measure your grease deposits before we clean. Eventually, we should be able to predict how long it will take for your grease deposits to build up to dangerous levels and schedule cleanings accordingly for maximum cost-efficiency.
