The Importance of Hood Cleaning
As a restaurant owner, you know that there are a lot of moving parts that go into keeping your business running smoothly. From stocking the kitchen to serving the customers, there’s always something that needs to be taken care of. One thing that is often overlooked is the hood cleaning. The hood, or exhaust system, in a commercial kitchen, can build up grease, fumes, and other pollutants over time. This buildup can be a fire hazard, and it can also lead to poor indoor air quality. That’s why Hood Cleaning Company provides Health & Safety Certificates as per NFPA 96 standards. This means that our technicians are trained to clean hoods in accordance with the latest safety guidelines. We also take before and after pictures so that you can see the results of our work.

The Dangers of Grease Buildup
One of the most important reasons to keep your hood clean is to prevent grease buildup. Grease is highly combustible, and a build-up of even a small amount can result in a devastating kitchen fire. In fact, According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), grease fires are one of the leading causes of restaurant fires. In addition to causing fires, grease can also lead to poor indoor air quality. When grease builds up in the hood, it can be released into the air where it can be breathed in by employees and customers. This can cause respiratory problems and other health issues.
