Hood Cleaning is essential and mandatory in the state of Illinois

Illiois kitchen fire hood cleaning could have preventedGrease fires can start on or in the stoves and progress up into a greasy exhaust hood, or even start in the hood or ducting itself. When serious, a fire can result in loss of your business and even loss of life! Even a small hood fire can cause a lot of damage to your equipment and smoke damage to the rest of your facility. Luckily the stove and hood fire in the fast food restaurant pictured to the left was put out quickly. But note the heavy fire and smoke damage to the kitchen and equipment.

The following is a brief tour of our cleaning procedure:

Covered Hood Cleaning

1.) RPW ProWash covers the cooking equipment with plastic, removes and soaks the filters in a heavy de-greaser, and then scrapes the heavy grease deposits from the hood duct and fan.

Hot Water Pressure Cleaning

2.) The remaining grease and grime gets blasted off of the fan and hood with hot high pressure and strong de-greaser.

Filters Cleaned

3.) The soaked filters are now pressure cleaned, and replaced into a sparkling fireproof hood.
