Hood Cleaning

Kitchen Exhaust Hood Cleaning Services by Aizen Fire Protection, Inc.®

All kitchen hoods must remain clean in order to maintain safe environment and to lower the chance of possible fire because of built-up grease. Commercial kitchens have the potential of grease fires due to the volume of cooking involvement.

Exhaust cleaning is required by code for every commercial cooking establishment. Kitchen grease hood cleaning is required by the Health Inspectors, Fire Marshals, Insurance Companies and Authority Having Jurisdiction.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 96 standard) requires all commercial kitchens exhaust systems to be cleaned by a properly trained, qualified, and certified personal.

Aizen Hood Cleaning technicians are professionally trained.

We follow the NFPA 96&17A Standards and the Fire Marshal as part of our services. Some restaurants or commercial hood owners use non-professional staff to clean their hoods and ducts, by doing so they violate the code and expose themselves to potential risks that are negligent. If your business ever has a fire that originates in the kitchen exhaust system, it could be denied by your insurance company for coverage. Before you consider using a non-certified company, think about the liability and let us; the professional hood cleaners help you.

We will clean your hood, duct and the fan. Ask us about appliances and filters cleaning.
