If you have a commercial kitchen and you prepare food for guests with either grease or wood, you likely have a hood.  A hood is an enclosure or canopy that ventilates your kitchen area, carrying off fumes, sprays, smoke, heat, etc.  Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning, commonly called Hood Cleaning, is a process that involves a professional Kitchen Guard crew coming into your restaurant regularly after business hours (as required by fire safety codes and insurance) to regularly remove built-up grease that gets past your filters and coats the ducting and fan.  Essentially, Kitchen Guard keeps your kitchen healthy, clean and fire safe (and in compliance with local fire codes).

Not only is it required by law…but more importantly, it’s for the health and safety of your staff and guests. And it’s more than just your hood(s), it’s the entire ducting system, its fans, and surfaces, it’s the unseen nooks and crannies that need to be cleaned entirely and thoroughly. As grease builds up in the exhaust system, the risk of a fire increases exponentially. By keeping your system cleaned at the recommended frequency (weekly, monthly, or quarterly, depending on several factors), you mitigate fire risk, ensuring a safe work environment and a pleasant (and clean) dining experience. There are also the requirements set forth by the local Fire Authority as well as your Insurance and your Landlord if you’re leasing the space.

No. Because our cleaning is typically done at night, after business hours, most locations provide our team with access, so you don’t have to someone around all night long.  We take pride in providing reliable, trustworthy, and professional service – it’s no wonder Kitchen Guard maintains a 90%+ retention rate with its clients.  We believe in relationships, not transactions…so we aim to make restaurant and commercial kitchen operators (and facility managers) lives easier.
