The first question that comes to most restaurant owners minds when they learn that the ventilation system in their restaurant needs to be regularly cleaned is how much will it cost. Hood cleaning is a crucial element to keeping your establishment clean as well as significantly lowering the risk of fire. Every restaurant is different and requires unique considerations in regards to keeping the ventilation clean, but the following points will affect the price we can give you the most.
1. How much equipment is being cleaned?
Some commercial kitchens house a lot of equipment and have complex hood and ductwork systems. Cleaning the ventilation in a large establishment with complicated ductwork will take longer to complete and cost more. How easy it is for us to access your hood can also lead to higher costs.
2. What type of insurance does the hood cleaner have?
There are some risks associated with hood cleaning that need to be recognized. Most ventilation services have protection in case one of their employees gets hurt on the job but there are other areas of risk that some companies ignore. The best services also have policies in place that will cover property damage and the occurrence of a fire. Using a service that has the maximum amount of protection can drive the price of professional hood cleaning up but is definitely worth it in the long run.
3. How is the waste water handled?
A lot of waste water will be produced while cleaning the ductwork of a commercial kitchen. The water will be full of grease and not suitable to dispose of without special consideration. It is imperative that this water is handled properly to ensure your kitchen is as clean as possible. Some services don’t take any precautions and get rid of the water in a manner that could come back to hurt you down the road. We promise to handle all waste water only with state-approved methods that will not adversely affect your establishment.
