A Restaurant Owner’s Guide to Exhaust Hood Cleaning
The purpose of a range hood filter is to collect grease, so if it’s doing its job correctly, it’s going to look and feel, well, greasy. Over time the filters become so blocked with grease and ickiness that they lose their effectiveness, which is why it’s important to clean these filters on a regular basis. Traditional cleaning is a mission… and a hassle.
Thankfully, cleaning them isn’t hard at all when you have a Spectank!
Exhaust hood systems play an important role in the restaurant kitchen, pulling heat, smoke, and odor away from cooking surfaces. This is for the protection of both employees and the restaurant facility itself, but over time, the greasy buildup inside hoods and ductwork can become a safety hazard of its own.
Protecting against this hazard requires regular and thorough cleaning of the exhaust hood, exhaust hood filters, and ductwork. Grease buildup inside the hood duct system is among the leading causes of restaurant fires, and proper maintenance and cleaning can drastically reduce this risk.
The Spectank is the most effective method of cleaning the filters… the combination of Carbsolve and hot water disolves the fats and oils, penetrates right into the baffles, with the result that the Spectankular method of cleaning is unparalleled in comparison to other methods.
30 to 40 minutes is all that is required to clean the filters.
To ensure the safety of staff and patrons against dangerous fires, get your Spectank today, and make sure to have all hoods properly cleaned on a daily basis in the Spectank.
