Exhaust Hood Cleaning

Main Hood Cleaning is the perfect company to do your exhaust hood cleaning!

Main Hood Cleaning has a reputation for being one of the best hood cleaning companies in the greater Portland area.  Once we get a customer, we have them for life.  Now it is your turn to trust your commercial kitchen exhaust system to us.

We have highly trained specialists for hood cleaning in Portland.  As a matter of fact, they are trained to the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) Standard 96.  We take our hood cleaning personally and make sure the exhaust system is cleaned just like it was our own.  

We have seen some really greasy hoods and that is bad because we would not eat in a restaurant that does not have a regular professional hood cleaning.  So, when you see our team members eating at a cafe you know that they were the ones to clean the exhaust hood and know they did a very thorough job.  

Exhaust hood cleaning is a must.

As an owner in Portland who has been in the business for a while, you understand the importance of having a professional hood cleaning done on a regular basis.  We are getting more requests to have the exhaust hood cleaning from commercial kitchens in Portland because of an inspection by the insurance company.

Relying on your people in Portland to do a thorough job cleaning the exhaust system it not a good idea.  They may be doing the best job they can, but they don’t have the training and equipment we have to get into the nooks and crannies of the exhaust system to remove the grease.  Most of them don’t even think of going up on the roof to see if there is grease build-up in the turbine.  That build-up could cause the grease to spill over onto the roof and because grease is acidic, it can start to damage the roof in as little as two weeks.

The NFPA has recommendations on how often you should have your hood cleaned.  The recommendations are based on how often the kitchen is used and what type of fuel is used while cooking.

Here are their guidelines:

  • If your restaurant kitchen in Portland uses solid fuel while cooking, they recommend having an exhaust hood cleaning monthly.
  • If your commercial kitchen in is high-volume like a twenty-four-hour facility, wok cooking or charbroiling, they recommend having an exhaust hood cleaning quarterly.
  • If your kitchen in Portland does a low volume of cooking or uses very little grease, they recommend having an exhaust hood cleaning semiannually.
  • If your kitchen in  does a very low volume of cooking like a seasonal business, day camp or church they recommend having an exhaust hood cleaning annually.

What is included in an exhaust hood cleaning in Portland?

As you are aware, the exhaust system in a restaurant kitchen is designed to filter out grease, smoke and other particles that are floating in the air.  The grease can easily build up in the exhaust system and if not cleaned regularly, can cause a fire hazard.  The grease could also become hot and ignite and they can be difficult to put out.

When we come onto your premises in Portland , here is what we do:

  • First we take before pictures top to bottom as we are doing our examination.
  • If there are any repairs that need to be done, we will inform you immediately.
  • We install plastic sheeting to protect the equipment under the exhaust system.
  • We then apply an environmentally FDA approved degreaser to loosen the grease.
  • We also remove the filters and apply the degreaser.
  • Once it has sat for awhile, we use a pressure washer and hot water to remove the grease.
  • We go onto the roof as well to remove the grease from the turbine
  • Once we are done with that, we will polish the exhaust system to give it that “like new” look.
  • Then we will take after pictures.
  • A sticker will be put on the exhaust system showing the date the work was done and the next recommended date to have your next cleaning.

These pictures will be sent to you via email so you can show your insurance company or fire marshal that you have had a professional exhaust hood cleaning
