The Grease Exhaust Cleaning Process
The grease exhaust cleaning process involves a series of meticulous steps to ensure all grease buildup is removed:
- Filter Removal: Depending on the job, grease filters, mesh screens, and baffle filters are taken out and soaked in degreasing solutions to break down accumulated grease.
- Surface Cleaning: Technicians manually scrape off stubborn grease deposits from the interior surfaces of exhaust hoods, ductwork, and exhaust fans.
- High-Pressure Washing: High-pressure hot water, combined with specialized detergents, is used to powerfully remove any remaining grease and grime from the surfaces.
- Reassembly and Inspection: After cleaning, the filters are reinstalled, and the entire system is thoroughly inspected to ensure cleanliness and optimal performance.
Cleaning Frequency for Grease Exhaust Systems
The frequency of grease exhaust system cleaning varies based on the intensity of kitchen operations, but generally speaking, the following is recommended:
- Monthly: For high-volume kitchens with constant cooking.
- Quarterly: For moderate-volume kitchens.
- Semi-annually: For low-volume kitchens.
Compliance with local fire and safety codes is critical. Many jurisdictions have specific regulations outlining the required cleaning frequency and standards. Cleaning companies provide certification and documentation after each cleaning session to demonstrate compliance. Regular cleaning not only mitigates fire risks but also enhances indoor air quality and prolongs the lifespan of kitchen equipment.
