Ready for Greasy Cooking this Super Bowl?

January 28, 2017

Ready for Greasy Cooking this Super Bowl?There are so many fun traditions related the Super Bowl. Getting together to watch the big game with friends on a big screen TV. Placing bets on your favorite team. Alternately laughing, groaning, and sighing at the commercials. And perhaps the most ubiquitous Super Bowl tradition is to enjoy some delicious greasy food on game day.

Most people consider anything that’s fried to be acceptable on game day. Vegetables are generally frowned upon, and plenty of soda and beer are requisite staples for the Super Bowl.

Going out to a restaurant to take in the Super Bowl

Many people love going out to watch the Big Game on Super Bowl Sunday. It can be fun to go to a restaurant where everyone is cheering on the same team. You get to feel the whole emotional rollercoaster with dozens of people around you who are going through the same exact emotions.

Plus restaurants often have fabulous big screen TVs that allow viewers to catch every detail of the Super Bowl game, including players’, referees’, and coaches’ facial expressions. Many restaurants are extra busy on Super Bowl Sunday.

But that means that if you’re a commercial kitchen manager, Super Bowl Sunday is definitely go-time. You know that plenty of greasy food orders will be flooding your kitchen, so it’s important to be as prepared as you can before the big day arrives.

Prepare for the Super Bowl today

One essential way to prepare for the influx of greasy food orders on Super Bowl Sunday is to make sure your flue and the rest of your kitchen exhaust system is in tip-top shape. You can do that easily by placing a call to Flue Steam at 800-700-FLUE today. We’ve partnered with hundreds of commercial kitchens throughout Southern California over the years to provide meticulous commercial kitchen exhaust system cleaning services.

Hand-scraping and steam cleaning

We have two methods for cleaning your commercial kitchen exhaust system:

  • Hand-scraping
  • Steam cleaning

Hand-scraping is a simple, inexpensive way to ensure major grease deposits are removed from accessible areas. We recommend that most businesses have hand scraping done once a month to avoid excessive grease build-up.

Steam cleaning is a bit costlier than hand-scraping, but it’s also more thorough. Steam cleaning is accomplished by using hot, high-pressure water to remove grease. We recommend businesses to supplement monthly hand scraping with steam cleaning 2-4 times per year. Steam cleaning once per quarter is a good way to prevent excess grease and avoid the risk of flash fires.

When our technicians come to clean your exhaust system, you can be confident that they’ll strive to reach every inch of it. We start with the hood, then move onto the exhaust ducts, drip cups, and exhaust fans. Every regularly scheduled cleaning visit also includes a complimentary exhaust fan inspection. If your belts are worn out and you have a replacement readily available, we’ll be happy to install the new belt at no additional charge so your exhaust system stays clean for as long as possible.
