April 9, 2016

I hate scraping my commercial kitchen's flue. What should I do?Scraping a commercial kitchen flue is no one’s idea of a great time. It takes so much elbow grease and needs to be done repeatedly to keep your commercial kitchen safe from flash fires. Hand scraping is a necessary though cumbersome and time-consuming tasks that many people would like to avoid.

Hand scraping – Many of our clients sign up for monthly hand scraping of their kitchen exhaust system. It’s a simple and affordable way to ensure your flue always stays clean.
