Restaurant Owner’s Guide

Finding a commercial hood cleaning company you can trust can be difficult. This guide will give you some basics so you know when you have found the hood cleaning industry experts or corner cutting laggards. Whomever you
trust in your kitchen needs to be top notch professional to prevent potential kitchen fires.

SOME BASICS

Ask your current service provider “Are you certified?” Most reputable hood cleaners will have either an IKECA certification or a PWNA certification. National fire codes require that a hood cleaning company be “properly trained, qualified and certified.” (NFPA 96 Section 8.3-1) Any quality professional hood cleaner will be certified. Knowledge of NFPA96 fire code is essential to professional hood cleaners.

Levels of Service and Quality

What sets one hood cleaner apart from another is pretty simple: quality and service. The ductwork from the hood to the roof is largely out of sight and consequently out of mind. A quality hood cleaning company will clean those areas you can’t see just as thoroughly as the ones you can. If any horizontal ductwork exists in your facility this is one area that low-quality hood cleaners notoriously skip.

Inspect the ductwork after a cleaning to see If all of the build up and grease has been removed to the bare metal. Some commercial hood cleaners now provide a full photo assurance program to provide customers with pictures of their system after the cleaning. This lets the restaurant owner know that the work is being done correctly and
that the cleaning company is reviewing the work of its technicians.

Quality Checklist

Any professional commercial hood cleaner should be providing you with some essential
and basic services. Review this list and see if your current company makes the grade.
