Start 2019 with a Sparkling Clean Exhaust System

Beginning a new year is always a great time to hit pause and reset your life – or your commercial kitchen! How can you welcome the new year in your commercial kitchen? With a sparkling clean exhaust system, of course! The start of the new year is the perfect time to reflect on how you can improve your surroundings and routine, and exhaust system, too. Establish a partnership with Flue Steam and you’ll never have to worry about whether your exhaust system is clean enough to keep flash fires from occurring and to keep code inspectors satisfied. We provide thorough exhaust system cleaning services at every visit, and we are happy to schedule your cleaning services at dates and times that are most convenient for your kitchen staff’s busy schedule.

What’s involved in exhaust system cleaning services?

Perhaps you’ve never had your commercial kitchen’s exhaust system professionally cleaned before. If that’s the case, you’re probably wondering what happens during a cleaning service. Well, here at Flue Steam, we have specialized equipment that utilized hot, pressurized water to deliver a truly impeccable clean for every inch of your exhaust system. We’ll start by cleaning the range hood, then move to the drip cups, exhaust fans, and ducts. Rest assured that you’ll receive a comprehensive cleaning at every visit.

We recommend signing up for steam cleaning services from Flue Steam 2-4 times per year. If you’re not sure how many times per year you should sign up for, we would be glad to advise you. As a general rule, restaurants that broil and fry food often should have their exhaust systems cleaned more frequently so that grease deposits don’t build up. But sushi restaurants, for example, might not need to have their exhaust systems cleaned as often to stay safe and up to code.

Certificate of Performance

After our professional technician is done thoroughly cleaning your exhaust system, he or she will provide a “Certificate of Performance” sticker to you. These stickers will keep code inspectors satisfied, might even save you money on your insurance bills, and will give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your exhaust system is perfectly clean.

Bonus services

We care about the safety and efficiency of your commercial kitchen. As a result, every regularly scheduled cleaning visit includes an exhaust fan inspection. Also, we’ll check the belts and other parts and grease your fan bearings. If we discover that your belts are worn out and you have a replacement on hand, we’ll install the new belt at no additional charge. It’s important to us to make sure your exhaust fan is drawing properly every day, which enables your kitchen to stay cleaner longer.

You can also count on us for grease filter exchange services as well as automatic fire suppression systems and portable fire extinguisher sales and services. Call us today at 800-700-FLUE!
