Your kitchen exhaust system can become a fire hazard if it isn’t cleaned regularly. Grease is responsible for approximately one third of all Chicago restaurant fires.
As a Chicago restaurant owner, you may have tried to save money by hiring a cheap hood cleaner or a polisher. This causes the hood to only be cleaned where it is visible. The most important ductwork between the roof and hood is left unclean, which can lead to a buildup of grease and charcoal over time. This is when a flame leaps from the stove and causes an extremely dangerous situation. A flame could ignite the thick grease buildup in the ductwork and cause an immediate firestorm due to the high concentration of flammable materials that are found within the kitchen exhaust system. Although you may believe you are saving money using a cheap cleaner and hood polisher you could end up in a costly lawsuit for your negligence.
Professional Hood Cleaners will remove all panels from the bottom of your Hood, then climb up onto the roof to remove the roof top. This is the most important step that many hood cleaners overlook. The assembly is then cleaned with a degreasing agent or soaked in it. Finally, hot steaming hot water is used to pressure wash the entire thing with hot steaming water.
Your Chicago kitchen exhaust system must now be completely cleaned. Chicago Hood Cleaning Pros follows this method of cleaning. It is important to scrape along with steam cleaning or pressure washing. According to NFPA standard 96 (National Fire Protection Association), steam cleaning can effectively clean ductwork down to the bare metal. For the moment, that eliminates all fire risk in your kitchen Exhaust system.
How often do you need to clean your kitchen exhaust and hood? Restaurants typically schedule cleanings every three to six months. This eliminates any buildup from heavy cooking and reduces 80% of fire danger in your kitchen exhaust systems. A lot of wood-burning stoves, charcoal stoves and stoves are subject to heavy use. It is possible that they will need to be cleaned every 30 days. If you consider the cost of repair after a kitchen fire, a quick cleaning can be a bargain.
Every restaurant should have their kitchen exhaust cleaned at least once every 30 days. It all depends on how many greasy foods you eat and how much oil is being released into your air.
The oil should be vented through the ductwork’s hood and out through a fan. If you don’t clean and maintain your ductwork properly, grease and charcoal can build up over time and cause a fire hazard.
You must clean the exhaust hood of a restaurant by going in and scraping it completely.
Next, use a food safe degreaser to clean up the grease. Hot water should be used to wash the exhaust system. This will remove all grease and oil and make it bare metal. To completely eliminate all grease and charcoal buildup, hot water pressure washing is the best option. The machines use boiling water to first, then the 2000 PSI water pressure.
We cover all kitchen equipment with heavy-duty plastic to protect it from the washing machine.

Next, we climb up onto the roof to inspect the fan and vents. Next, we will remove the fan from the roof and check for any obstructions with a flashlight. Then we will spray the entire ductwork with degreasing agents using a standard air pressure sprayer. This allows the grease to be easily removed and broken down without needing to scrape. The fan’s interior is sprayed. We will then pressure wash the fan, as well as any orifices, with steam water. We spray all grease and oil from the ductwork, starting at the roof, to the hood below.
Next, we will spray the entire ductwork using a standard sprayer. It is heated and pressurized. This allows the grease to easily be removed and broken down without needing to scrape. Then, we spray the entire inside of the fan with our cleaning solution. The fan, shell, and orifices are then pressure washed with steaming water. We spray all grease and oil from the ductwork, starting at the roof, to the hood below.
The next step is to scrape out any remaining chunks, then spray down again to thoroughly rinse the residue and degreaser.
Next, we will go to the kitchen and steam pressure wash the interior of the hood. We also scrape out any debris that has built up in the grooves and crevices. While your hood filters soak in degreaser, we completely clean them of all grease and charcoal. After we’re done, they get a polished appearance.
After removing the protective plastic, we wipe down your vent completely in stainless steel. Your hood will look professional and last longer.
Finally, we install all hood filters correctly and inspect the whole kitchen for any potential problems. We also add your commercial kitchen cleaning inspection certificate.
