Why Hire Professional Hood Cleaning Services?

You don’t need to run a professional kitchen to hire professionals for hood cleaning; it's wise to call the Air Duct Cleaning Torrance team for hood and hood vent cleaning. The type of kitchen you run and cooking volume will only impact the cleaning frequency, but our Air Duct Cleaning Torrance experts will advise you on how often they should clean the hood vent in your kitchen.

How Often Do Commercial Kitchens Require Hood and Exhaust Vent Cleaning?

Professionals recommended cleaning the hood and exhaust at the same time, as they’re connected. If your kitchen is commercial, completing the NFPA 96 regulations is mandatory.

Here’s the recommended frequency for professionally cleaning the hood and exhaust in the kitchen:

  • Monthly- for kitchens with daily solid fuel cooking.
  • Quarterly (every three months)- for high volume cooking, with a lot of charbroiling and wok
  • Semi-annually- for kitchens with moderate cooking volume.
  • Annually- for residential kitchens and restaurants operating a couple of months in the year (churches, day camps)

Our Hood Cleaning Process Step by Step

You shouldn’t postpone regular kitchen hood cleaning; it's mandatory to provide a healthy and safe environment for anyone using the kitchen. The phases our experts at Air Duct Cleaning Torrance will go through the cleaning protocol are as follows:

  • Address the grease traps
  • Clean the filters
  • Address and clean the interior and exterior of the hood

Clean the grease traps

The hood includes several elements, and each of them requires cleaning, with the grease traps as the first element to clean.

Step 1- Remove the traps. They’re found on each side of the hood for most models out there.

Step 2- Clean the grease. The technicians will use a soft-bristled brush/cloth/scrubbing pad for cleaning the grease traps of grease. They will gently rub for perfect results.

Step 3- Put the traps in solution. The team makes a mixture made with warm water and a powerful degreaser. The traps will stay in for 10 minutes or so.

Step 4- Dry the traps. The technicians allow the traps to air dry before putting them back in place.

Clean the filters

Grease tends to deposit around the hood vent too, and our experts will be meticulous when addressing the filters as well.

Step 1- Remove the filters.

Step 2- Soak the filters. The team will place the filters in the mixture made with a strong degreaser and warm water. They will carefully scrub the residues with some soft cloths. Once they’re done, they will rinse the filters.

Step 3- Allow filters to dry. The filters will air dry, and the team will put them back in place.

Clean the interior and exterior of the hood

Step 1- scrub the interior and fan. Again, they will use the solution made with warm water and degreaser and a soft-bristle brush/non-abrasive pad.

Step 2- wipe off the fan and the interior. Our technicians will eliminate all soapy residues from the exhaust fan, interior, and other parts,  using damp towels for the residues and dry towels for drying the pieces off.

Step 3- clean the exterior. Soft-bristle brush/non-abrasive pads/cloths are used for any of the scrubbings.

Step 4- wipe off the exterior. They use damp towels for soap residue removal and dry towels for drying it off.

Step 5- reinstall the filters and grease traps. Put the filters back in place after they’re dry.
