GB Hood Cleaning Philadelphia Technicians Are 100% Trained & Certified
Grease Busters Hood Cleaning of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has been serving the Philadelphia and surrounding areas for years. Our team of professionals focus on perfecting the art of not only restaurant hood cleaning, we have cleaned hoods in hospitals, cafeterias, schools, hotels, special event centers and more.
When training our people in hood cleaning, we follow the National Fire Protection Association Code 96 guidelines. This is important as it helps to establish and maintain fire safety standards. These standards are adopted by local government to regulate equipment standards and equipment codes. These codes are in place to prevent economic loss due to fire, electrical and other related hazards. By following these procedures, we prevent injury, property damage and possible death that can occur to those who are not properly trained.
If a commercial kitchen does not have a hood cleaning done on a regular basis, grease and other contaminates can build up in the exhaust system and spill over onto the roof from the vent. If a hood system is not cleaned properly, the buildup can spark a grease fire that could damage the entire property.
Restaurant Hood Cleaning & Total Inspection
At Grease Busters Hood Cleaning, we will inspect and clean grease from the ducts, fans, turbine and any other place the grease may accumulate in the exhaust system. Once we have removed the grease, we will polish the hood to give it that “like new” appearance. We also place a dated sticker on the hood to show that a professional hood cleaning has been performed.
Today, we find that the fire department and health department are requiring restaurants to have a professional come in and clean the hoods. In many cases, if the restaurant hood cleaning is not done in their allotted amount of time, they will force the restaurant to close its doors until the job is done. This is because it has been noted that sixty-three reported restaurant fires were due to buildup of grease and contaminates.
How Often Should Your Restaurant Hood Cleaning Be Performed?
We are often asked how often a restaurant hood cleaning should be performed. That depends on the type of fuel used while cooking. The following are some guidelines to consider:
- A cleaning monthly should be performed if the kitchen is using solid fuels while cooking. Solid fuels include wood pellets, charcoal, wood and coal.
- A quarterly cleaning should be considered if the commercial kitchen is charbroiling, wok cooking or in use twenty-four hours a day. A thorough hood cleaning can be done in less than three hours.
- If a kitchen is only used moderately, they may be able to have the restaurant hood cleaning done semi-annually.
- For places that have a low volume of cooking such as seasonal businesses, day camps, senior centers and churches, the hood cleaning should be done annually.
Having a strict schedule can prevent a commercial kitchen from being shut down. Grease Busters Hood Cleaning of Philadelphia will help any commercial kitchen maintain a proper schedule for cleaning. This will insure the kitchen is up to standards when the fire department, health department or even their insurance company want to inspect the premises.
Real Hood Cleaning Professionals
When calling Grease Busters Hood Cleaning of Philadelphia, expect to be greeted professionally. We may not be able to give a quote over the phone because of the variables that may be in place. If a restaurant hood cleaning has not been done on a regular schedule, we may want one of our professionals to come out and look the exhaust system over. We not only inspect the inside of the kitchen, we will also climb up on the roof to see if there is grease buildup.
We have been on roofs that other hood cleaning companies ignored. The result can be devastating. We have had to take shovels and remove grease that has built up. Grease can be heavy and can also compromise the structure of the roof. There can also be an environmental hazard when grease builds up on a roof. When weather hits, the water can case the grease to run down the side of a building causing damage on the way down. It will then follow the natural path and go down the drain storms. Restaurants may have to pay heavy fines when this happens as well as the responsibility of the clean-up.
Many establishments rely on their employees to do their restaurant hood cleaning. While the employees may do a good job, they probably were not trained professionally. There may be areas they do not think are important to inspect and clean or they may not dispose of the grease properly. Please let us know if you need more information about us before you hire us. We serve Philadelphia and all nearby Counties and towns.
Digital Pictures & Hood Cleaning Sticker For Your Proof
The restaurants we do hood cleaning for love us because we take pictures of the before and after cleaning. These pictures are helpful because if there is an inspection, the restaurant can produce evidence that the hood has been professionally cleaned. This is also important to the insurance company and may result in a lower premium. Please contact us with any questions you may have. We're really here to help.
