    What is Hood Cleaning? Hood cleaning is the part of Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning that is actually visible to the customer. Kitchen exhaust cleaning is performed to reduce a commercial cooking operation's risk of catastrophic fire, by removing the potential fire's fuel source. What is often over looked is the Kitchen Exhaust System's ductwork. The ductwork that I have shown below ran through a hospital's maternity ward, and was ignored by the exhaust cleaner that had just cleaned the hood.

    For the record, it takes a LONG time for a hospital to accumulate that much grease in their exhaust system, ESPECIALLY considering the fact that this was a water wash hood!

    Defintion of hood exhaust cleaning; thre is setting up the hood to prevent mess on equiptment or floor.You hand clean the outside and the back wall.Then you go to the roof and check belts and grease bearings on the fan also make sure everything is up to parr running .You soak and pressure wash the exhaust fan then most of the time you soak srape then soak the pipes then pressure wash them.Now some systems have access panels where the pipes come to the hood above the ceiling well you open hte access panels soak scrape soak then pressure wash.And then you got to the hood soak and wait for the run off then climb in scrape all areas that the pressure washer cannot get to then you re soak then pressure wash again.Then go outside again and pressure wash the filters.Now you tear down and put all filters and drain pans back which are clean and climb in the hood area wipe the water then polish all the stainless.That is exhaust hood cleaning.Once i get comfortable here i will show some pics of accesses and things like that.

    I feel at home already, I see some of my compatriots beat me over here.

    The goal of good exhaust cleaners is to make the resturant fire safe. If we do a PJ job, buildings burn down and people get hurt and can die. A number of us have goal of cleaning to bare nekkid metal. We also look down on those that do not clean to bare nekked metal.

    We do have similar equipment to the roof cleaners, and we do face the same safety challanges as roof cleaners.

    I started my business in 1978, servicing fire suppresion equipement, including cleaning hoods. I have also been a firefighter, volunteer, paid on call, full time and wore a white hat for a couple of years. With my experience and my advanced age I have an attitude towards PJ work. I had a friend killed in a fire several years ago. the contractor and builing inspector on that job did not do their jobs. They got a weekend in jail, Randy got a hole in the ground. [URL="http://http://rfallenbrother.com/"] That adds to my attitude. My professional goal is to never put anyone in a hole in the ground because of something I or one of my employees does.

    I am a member of the Grease Police, and damn proud of it. I wish more of the fire orgs had the attitude of the Grease Police.
