We provide hood filter cleaning service for all of our customers. A filter that is clogged with grease does not allow your kitchen exhaust fan system to “breath” properly and can cause premature failure of your fan motor. Our kitchen exhaust cleaning services starts first with cleaning your hood filters, then moving on to our kitchen exhaust duct cleaning services.
We have found some filters that weren’t cleaned or cleaned properly for long periods of time. When this happens grease builds up inside the filters and as time goes along the layers of build up gets harder and thicker. Ultimately, the filters are a lot heavier from this grease buildup. Also, the filters become a fire hazard since this grease (fuel) is trapped inside the filters.
It depends on the size and number of filters that need to be cleaned.
We like to clean hood filters after hours. Since your kitchen is busy during opening hours we do not want to interrupt your business.
The type of cooking, and volume of cooking dictate how often they need to be cleaned.
Just like any other type of filter, if it gets clogged then the hood fan will not operate as efficiently. The smoke from the cooking station does not get vacuumed up as easily and your kitchen will get smokey.
