Anyone who works in the restaurant industry knows the importance of keeping everything clean and sanitized. Not only are there regulations and standards that must be met, there are also a variety of benefits that come with having a clean and sanitized kitchen. And that’s where Greasebusters of South Florida comes in. Our team of technicians is proficient at cleaning kitchen equipment so that you can focus on what you love — cooking food!
Greasebusters provides hood cleaning services to Miami and other South Florida cities. We have worked with high-end restaurants like Benihana and know what it takes to keep a kitchen clean and running efficiently. Along with kitchen hoods, we also clean various equipment, floors, ovens, stove tops, and more. If you have been putting on hiring a hood cleaning service, here are some benefits that you can expect to see in your kitchen:
Fire Compliance and Safety
There are several state and local regulatory organizations that are involved in the running of a commercial kitchen, including the National Fire Protection Association and the International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association. In order to keep your kitchen open and running, it must be compliant with all fire codes. If you aren’t sure what local fire codes are, get in touch with a licensed hood cleaning service like Greasebusters.
When we work in any commercial kitchen, we use our patented, biodegradable industrial degreaser “GreaseBeast.” This will quickly and efficiently remove all built up grease throughout your kitchen. When left uncleaned, built up grease is a fire hazard that could lead to serious harm to employees in the kitchen and the restaurant itself. Before grease builds up in your kitchen, increasing the risk of a fire, work with a professional technician who has the necessary tools and experience to get the job done right.
If you have ever worked in a kitchen or dined at a restaurant who uses a fryer, you can sometimes smell grease coming from the kitchen or the exhaust system. Not only is this unappetizing for guests, but could also have an impact on the quality of the food coming out. A regular visit from a commercial hood cleaning expert will ensure that every piece of the exhaust system to clear of grease and heavy smells.
Your commercial hood does more than just capture smoke and steam from cooking, it helps to capture air pollutants. When using a gas or electric appliance, pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide are released. If your kitchen hood hasn’t been cleaned recently, it won’t capture these pollutants as efficiently and they could end up in the air or the even the food.
There are a lot of appliances, such as grills, ovens, and fryers in a commercial kitchen. When the exhaust system isn’t working properly because of built-up grease or other materials, it will cause the ventilation fans and other machinery to work harder than necessary, or even break down completely. Greasebusters will ensure that every passageway is clear so that every part of the system is working efficiently, helping you save money on your utility bill.
Along the same lines, clean kitchen equipment will last longer. Yes, you may save money today by not calling in a professional hood cleaning service, but in the long run, you may end up paying more when you need to purchase all new equipment. In addition, clean equipment will require less maintenance, also helping you save money.
