Benefits of Properly Maintaining your Kitchen Hood Exhaust System Beyond safety concerns. There are other benefits to properly maintaining your Kitchen Hood Exhaust System.

The Kitchen Exhaust Hood System helps to keep up proper airflow in your kitchen. Odors and excess smoke, caused by grease and oils, are not what you want, your customers to experience.

When the fan becomes heavily greased, it slows down, affecting the air balance in the kitchen by reducing the amount of air being exhausted. This can cause kitchen odors to easily leak into the dining area.

To run efficient, the Commercial Kitchen Exhaust System must be cleaned to prevent excess grease accumulation. When the Kitchen Exhaust System is greasy, more wear occurs, which leads to premature replacement of parts, service calls.

By allowing Safe Guard Commercial Hood Cleaning to service your commercial fire system, you are staying compliant, and will eventually save money and cut your exposure to grease fire liabilities.

A well cleaned Kitchen Hood Exhaust system (down to bare metal) will cut the deposit of grease on to the metal surfaces.

Grease will not adhere to smooth clean metal surfaces then rough grease laden surfaces. With proper maintenance, the maintenance itself is easier and therefore less costly.

New clients who have not properly maintained their Kitchen Exhaust Hood typically spend much more money to do a deep cleaning and bring their system into compliance.

After your thorough commercial kitchen exhaust cleaning performed by Safe Guard, the change in the kitchen can be seen and smelled.
