Commercial Kitchen Hood and Exhaust Cleaning

  • Making commercial kitchen hoods and exhausts clean again.

Commercial kitchen hoods present unique safety problems as grease laden vapors from cooking deposit grease in the exhaust system. There is a potential for this grease to ignite, resulting in a fire. Chapter 11 of the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) publication “Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations” recommends a schedule of inspection for grease build up based on the type and size of the cooking operation. The standard also recommends cleaning of the exhaust system if the inspections reveals that the system is contaminated with deposits from grease laden vapors. PROAC Corporation has extensive experience cleaning grease hoods in industrial, institutional, and educational settings. Our technicians take great care to protect existing equipment.
