Kitchen exhaust system cleaning

When was the last time your commercial kitchen’s exhaust system was cleaned? If it’s been more than a couple of weeks, this is a safety concern. Avoid grease fires and costly code violations by enlisting the expertise of Flue Steam today. We offer both hand scraping and steam cleaning services.

Hand scraping is a simple and affordable way to remove grease from easily accessible areas. We start with the hood, then clean the exhaust ducts, drip cups, and exhaust fans. We recommend commercial kitchen exhaust systems be hand scraped once a month. Steam cleaning is more expensive than hand scraping, but it’s also more thorough. We utilize hot, high-pressure water to remove grease in every area of kitchen exhaust systems. We recommend steam cleaning be done 2-4 times per year, depending on how much grease your cooks and chefs use while cooking each day.

Complete confidence

When you partner with Flue Steam, you’ll always meet code regulations perfectly. We provide “Certificate of Performance” stickers after each job as proof that you have fulfilled your NFPA code obligations. Our stickers keep inspectors satisfied and they can even help you save money on insurance bills.

Absolute safety

Every time we come to your business for a regularly scheduled cleaning visit, we’ll also inspect your exhaust fan, when the belts and other parts, as well as grease your fan bearings. If your belts are worn out and you have a replacement on hand, we’ll install the new belt for you at no additional charge. It’s just one more way we ensure your kitchen exhaust system stays cleaner longer to minimize the risk of grease fires.
