HOOD CLEANING CHECKLIST

  1. What type of fan do I have?
    Was my hood, duct, and fan cleaned to bare metal?

    • Up Blast – Does my fan have hinges? If not, is the electrical conduit long enough for the fan to be tilted?
    • Utility – Does my fan have access panels to clean both sides of the blades?
  2. Do I have an adequate number of access panels?
    • Access Panels should be installed every 12 feet and at every bend
    • A general rule of thumb is, if you can’t see it, you can’t clean it.
  3. How often should I have my exhaust system cleaned?
    • Monthly – Systems serving solid fuel cooking operations (wood or charcoal)
    • Quarterly – Systems serving high-volume cooking operations, such as 24-hour cooking, charbroiling, or wok cooking
    • Semi-Annually – Systems serving moderate-volume cooking operations
    • Annually – Systems serving low-volume cooking operations such as churches, day camps, seasonal businesses or senior centers
  4. Do I have my access panels in place?
    • Are the slats in the grease filters vertical?
    • Grease filters are important because they allow the fan to draw air evenly along your cooking line.
    • They should be cleaned on a regular basis.
  5. Are my belts in good condition?
    • Belts should be changed semi-annually to ensure smooth operation.
  6. Are my bearings greased?
    Bearings should be greased when belts are changed to avoid seizure.
  7. Does my hood have an up-to-date cleaning sticker?
    Is the box for inaccessible areas checked off? If so, ask the technician why.
  8. Does my exhaust cleaning company have liability insurance and workers’ compensation in case of an accident?
  9. Is my exhaust cleaning company trained and certified to clean and maintain my kitchen exhaust system?
  10. Is your exhaust company available 24/7 for all your maintenance needs?

Your kitchen exhaust system is the backbone of your business. If maintained properly, it will give you many years of trouble-free use. If neglected, it can cost thousands of dollars in repairs.
