Members of the Flue Steam team will be attending the International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association’s 2015 Annual Membership Meeting in April. These meetings enable us to learn the newest, latest and best ways to “clean to the highest standard” along with the best of the best companies in the industry.
The focus of this year’s meeting will be our employees: employee retention, employee management, motivation, and incentives. In other words, we will be learning how to help our employees do an even better job performing their duties to the highest possible level of excellence, with the end result of providing even better service to our clients.
Superior client service is always a priority here at Flue Steam. Our membership in IKECA, the International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association, is a key part of what enable us to assure our clients that they will always be receiving service according to the latest industry best standards and practices.
IKECA provides many resources to both exhaust cleaning companies and individual cleaners. For example, IKECA issues certification credentials to individual cleaners that prove they have the expertise necessary to clean exhaust hoods and ducts to the standards required by local fire codes. IKECA is the only such certifying organization that requires cleaners to complete ongoing continuing education credits in order to maintain their certifications, so you know our certified staff is always up to date.
IKECA also offers tools like the IKECA comb, which can be used to measure grease deposits on exhaust hoods and duct walls. Because we make sure our employees have access to these combs and are trained in their proper use, we are able to assist commercial kitchen owners in determining the ideal cleaning frequency for their properties. This enables our clients to avoid the inconvenience and expense of overly frequent cleanings as well as the risk of waiting so long between cleanings that unsafe levels of grease can accumulate.

Whether you have a fine restaurant or a fast food joint, we can help you protect it from undue risk of fire and ensure fire code compliance with services like:
