As a restaurant owner and/or operator, you know that you need professional kitchen exhaust system cleaning in order to reduce the risk of fire in your commercial kitchen and comply with relevant California fire code statutes. But do you know how to tell if you’re getting truly effective cleaning? Here are the key components of complete professional kitchen exhaust system cleaning in Los Angeles CA to look for:
Hand scraping is the simplest and most common type of kitchen exhaust system cleaning in Los Angeles CA. It basically consists of a technician scraping layers of grease off of your exhaust hood in order to reduce the risk of fire. While hand scraping does help prevent fires, it is by no means the only service you need. A true professional will offer additional services.
Steam cleaning is the best way to remove grease from your entire kitchen exhaust system, because the hot water can reach every nook and cranny of the ductwork to wash away grease. A professional company will offer steam cleaning by certified technicians, and they will clean from both ends of your system—the exhaust hood and the rooftop exhaust fan.
In addition to cleaning your ductwork, a professional kitchen exhaust system cleaning in Los Angeles CA will include emptying the drip cup and changing or cleaning your grease filter. These are both important activities for fire prevention in your commercial kitchen.
Exhaust fan inspection and maintenance may not be offered by every exhaust cleaning company, but it is a vital service. Without a working exhaust fan, your system won’t draw air properly, resulting in problems for your kitchen and staff. A complete professional kitchen exhaust system cleaning in Los Angeles CA will include checking the exhaust fan for worn belts and other parts, greasing its bearings, and cleaning any grease buildup from the fan blades
At Flue Steam, we are proud to offer all of the above services for truly comprehensive and effective duct cleaning and fire prevention. Though it is not necessary to get a complete steam cleaning every month, when complete cleaning is needed we can provide professional service and certification stickers you can rely on.
