Kitchen Exhaust System Cleaning

Regular Kitchen Exhaust System Cleaning is important to keep your kitchen safe from a fire. Throughout the entire system you have all the major factors needed for a fire: grease, air, fire and the heat you use to cook your food.

Because of the potential for fire, insurance companies require a regular cleaning of the entire system to pay out any money in the case of a fire. Insurance companies can even deny your claim after a fire if you cannot prove that you had a regular cleaning done. By having it performed by an outside company, it makes the validation process easier for the insurance company, which could help you get paid faster.

Besides insurance companies, a cleaned to “bare-metal” standard is required by many cities to pass inspections that are needed to remain in operation or to get started.
