Kitchen Equipment Cleaning
Exhaust Fan Hinges
Access Panel Installation
Exhaust fan clean out ports are also required by code. These ports are mini access panels which allow complete inspection and cleaning of the exhaust fan. Fan access panels (clean out ports) allow our technicians to clean the back side of the fan blades. Not having the clean out ports can result in grease build-up on the blades which can cause the fan to become off-balance, vibrate and noisy. This vibration will prematurely wear out the fan bearings and belts.
Cleaning Hood Filters: Hood filters should be cleaned every day to keep them free of grease and maximize their filtering capability. If you have a high temp dishwasher, run your hood filters through the dishwasher. If your filters are aluminum or galvanized we do not recommend cleaning them in the dishwasher. Chemicals used in commercial dishwashers will cause aluminum and galvanized filters to turn color and corrode.
Replacing Hood Filters: Conduct regular visual inspections of your restaurant’s hood filters. When your filters become dented, corroded or are no longer easy to clean, it’s time to replace them. We are happy to measure for you and install new filters according to your needs.
Sidewalk, Drive-Thru, and Trash Area Cleaning
Clean and sanitary trash and dumpster areas help to keep your business compliant with health and sanitation codes, protect against pests, and provide a positive image for your business when these areas are visible to the public.
Our hot water pressure washers clean motor oil, dirt, soda and food spills, and other debris from your restaurant’s drive-thru lane creating a clean, presentable avenue for your customers.
Rooftop Grease Containment
The best way to prevent grease from damaging your roof is to install rooftop grease containment on all your exhaust fans. Properly designed rooftop grease containment will collect and hold the excess grease from your system while allowing rainwater to drain off. An effective rooftop grease containment system will include “hydrophobic” pads designed to shed water but hold onto the grease. Just having a grease box to catch the excess grease from your fan without these pads means the rainwater and your grease will spill onto the roof.
Fire Extinguisher Service Center sells, installs and maintains efficient, cost-effective systems designed to protect your roof from expensive repairs caused by rooftop grease. Once installed your rooftop grease containment system will be serviced each time you clean your kitchen exhaust hoods. Proper rooftop grease containment is an inexpensive way to protect your roof.
