Hood / Vent / Exhaust Cleaning

Grease and smoke problems start on the cooking surface in commercial kitchens. Grease, smoke and fatty acids are produced by the heat of cooking on a grill. Grease and smoke particles are drawn up into the system filters within the range hood. These particles then travel through the vent/hood system and into the main duct work of the vetilation system making their way to the roof line and eventually exiting the exhaust fan on the roof. Build up occurs all along the pathway and even on the roof resulting in four major problems.

  • FIRE HAZARD - The most dangerous, life threatening and expensive of all.
  • SANITARY - The smell of rancid grease repels customers and attracts Health and Fire Department Inspectors.
  • ROOF DECAY - Roof replacement is costly and time consuming.
  • EXHAUST FAN FAILURE - Grease build up causes fan malfunction and motor burn out leading to expensive replacement.

Boston Power Wash cleans and maintains;

  • Exhaust Hoods

  • Ducts
  • Vents

Filter Exchange Program

Did you know that running your filters through the dish washer can only clean the outside of the filter? Your filter could still be a fire hazard due to all the grease it is holding in areas, which cannot be seen. Because filters are directly over the cooking equipment they can easily catch on fire if not cleaned thoroughly and regularly. We can change out your dirty filters every week, twice a month or monthly with grease free filters. Call us for complete details of this program.
