The cleanliness of the kitchen exhaust hood in a commercial kitchen is one of the most important safety responsibilities any kitchen manager or restaurant owner can have.
Without proper cleaning, an exhaust range hood can catch fire, damaging the property and possibly causing injury or death for employees and customers. A fire can close down your business for weeks, if not months, while the necessary repairs are made, further impacting your business’ bottom line.
This is not a risk that it is acceptable to take. Everyone who manages a kitchen must ensure that their kitchen exhaust system is properly and regularly cleaned and serviced by a reputable organization.
In addition to reducing the fire risk that accompanies a greasy, dirty kitchen exhaust hood, there are other factors that make it worth your money to hire a hood cleaning service. Consider the following benefits of hiring Sustainable Restaurant Services for hood cleaning in South El Monte, Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Anaheim and throughout Southern California.
Reduce the Fire Risk the Comes with a Greasy, Dirty Kitchen Exhaust Hood
Even a kitchen hood that appears to be clean at first glance may have a hidden problem. You don’t want to just powerwash the visible parts of the hood, but clean every component of the exhaust system. The process is arduous and requires knowledge of the mechanics of the hood that isn’t necessarily instinctive to the layman. We can take care of that for you.
Avoid fines that accompany inspections if the inspector sees that your exhaust hood system does not meet current state and local standards. A grease fire is one of the biggest risks that face commercial kitchens, inspectors are never lenient in this area. Instead of worrying about whether or not you effectively cleaned your entire hood and all the accompanying components, like the exhaust fans, ducts and filters, Sustainable Restaurant Services’ highly trained technicians will ensure that you are up to code.
Save Money with Efficient Restaurant Hood Cleaning
Recognize the savings that come from hiring qualified, efficient cleaners, rather than requiring your regular kitchen staff to attempt the job, which will take them longer than us and leave more uncertainty in the completion of the job to the required standards.
Prolong the Life of Your Equipment
Keep your equipment in good working order through regular kitchen hood cleaning and inspection and that will prolong the life of your equipment. While you might balk at the idea of paying someone to clean your kitchen hood, consider just how much your range— if not your entire kitchen, or even your restaurant— would cost to replace in the event of a catastrophe. Protect your investment by taking care of it.
